I opted for the 1/2 day explore Istanbul walk, the guides we brilliant, they has a lot of information, were great communicators and keep the group together, which was not always easy. The only part of the tour that did no work for me was the 30 minute stop over at a carpet seller - termed "viewing traditional crafts", this is nothing other than a smooth sales pitch to sell rugs, whilst it was interesting it is a waste of precious time if you are not interested in buying. I would also recommend that given the amazing things there are to see in Istanbul, you should try and take the full day tour.
