It was our first visit to Istanbul. I chose to book this package after much research though Google, because this package gave additional options to select our hotel, guide and transfers. Overal package price was reasonable and I additionally found a promo code and got %5 more discount. The staff at Precise Tours was helpful and friendly and spoke very good English.
