“TURKISH SPAM!!!!!! TERRIBLE TOUR......”
Review of She Tours

Attraction details
Reviewed 3 June 2014

We visited Istanbul in March and took 1 day Bhosporous tour with SHE TOURS worth 80 Euros. It was the worst tour that we have ever taken and an absolute waste of money and time. SHE TOUR fools people saying that they are the official Istanbul trip organizer.

The trip itself was a complete disappointment. We were suppose to be picked from our hotel at 7:30 in the morning but no one showed up until we called the guy who sold us the tour. After waiting for a total of 45 minutes the van finally came for the pick up. Then we were taken to a assembly point where we waited for another half an hour for other buses to show up.

We were asked to change two buses before finally sorting out the tours and their respective guides... The tour finally started at 10:30AM and we were taken to Spice market. We stayed here for 30 mins and then went for the Bosphorous Tour. This tour lasted 2 hours and we were taken for lunch after that. The Lokum restaurant which served lunch (which was included in the price) was rubbish. Both lamb and chicken was of low quality and we had to pay extra for the drinks. There were no proper tables and no waiters to serve us...... After lunch, we were taken to a pathetic leather factory where we were forced to see a fashion show and waste our time. Around 3PM we were taken to the Asian side of Istanbul to Baylarbi Palace and in the end of the tour to a hill which had a cafe .....

The whole tour was a spam, taking money from people on the name of Bosphorous Tour,, while the Bosphorous boat tour lasted for only 2 hours and rest was a waste of time.... All the places included in the tour other than the Bosphorous boat trip can be easily explored locally in own time....not at all worth paying 80 Euros for all this....

I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS TOUR COMPANY TO ANYONE AND WOULD ASK EVERYONE WHOSE READING THIS REVIEW TO SPECIALLY KEEP AN EYE ON THIS COMPANY WHILE IN ISTANBUL AND AVOID IT!!!!!!!!

We took the she tours 1 day Bhosporous and istanbul tour. The tour guide was very rude. The guy tried to leave our friend's behind because they were 4 minutes late from the spice market trip back to the bus. I had to fight with him to wait. They stopped for lunch at a restaurant in the old city. Lokum Restaurant (I have a separate review for this restaurant ). The staff there were very unfriendly. My camera bag was right next to me and it was stolen. The cc camera shows the thief come into the restaurant and walk around like he's been there multiple times before. and snatches the bag and walks out of the restaurant. The tour guide was at the entrance when this happened. I can't prove it but I know that the tour guide and the restaurant were involved. Coming back to the tour, You are better off hiring a taxi and seeing the city and just take a separate boat tour from some other tour operator. It is not worth 70 euros for this tour. Total rip off

Arrived in Instanbul on Tuesday and during transfer from the airport to hotel, a local travel agency representative gave us our written itinerary for the next several days. We were scheduled for a full day tour of the Old City on Wednesday, with a 9:00am pick up time at our hotel. We were having breakfast about 8:20 am and an individual from She Tour came to the dining room to inform us we were late; actually, we had 40 minutes before pick up based on our written information! She hurried us along, obviously unhappy about "our mistake". We boarded the bus and while we do not understand the Turkish language, the bus driver's body language and loud tone looked and sounded like anger; it was a very unpleasant bus ride driving around town for the next 30 minutes pi cking up other passengers! Luckily, we changed buses at their designated location, encountering a much better situation. Our tour guide was knowledgable, friendly and her English was good; the rest of the day was fine but it certainly had a very bad beginning!! And according to my pedometer application, we walked in excess of 12,000 steps!!!

We took the Bosphorus and Golden Horn tour. The tour itself was great and comprehensive and as described in the brochure. The staff picked us up on time and provided sufficient information. The price was a bit expensive, if you have plenty of time I suggest you explore Istanbul yourself as the locals are very nice and friendly. If you have limited time though, this tour offer an easy solution to see the beauty of Istanbul

Recommended by a local we are very glad we used She Tours. From booking our one day trip to Ephesus from London (that included an internal flight) I found this company fantastic to work with. From providing information and payment to pick up, tour guide and drop off. Our She Tours guide was tentative, knowledgeable, fun and accommodating to our needs. They were on time, organised and used comfortable vehicles and comfort stops.
