The tour itself was very good and the guide was excellent. The problem was with online booking. Grayline site allowed me to book for 1/2 day in the morning on a Fri. Also the ticket or email did not indicate where to meet the tour group and the phone numbers did not work. I had to use the WhatsApp number in Grayline brochure.Apparently the tour company doesn’t do Istanbul classic on Fri due to the prayers that held in Sophia and Blue Mosque.So I ended up making it a full day tour and was charged 40 Euro extra. The morning part covered Topkapi palace, waiting for the small group that kept getting lost and lunch at Tamara which is not that good for vegetarians. Topkapi palace is good and the guide did a great jobThe afternoon tour covered Sophia, Blue Mosque, Hippodrome and Grand Bazar. All the tours were excellent. There was a stop where the goods are more excellent than what you get in grand bazar but I did not purchase

The only negative was that the tour ended in a different area from the departure and it was difficult to determine the way back to my hotel.
