  • Hello! When this fall was vacationing in Turkey, took a tour of the hotel have a guide to Istanbul, not sorry! The city certainly impressed! It is not the word! The course itself as a tour, city tours, crossing Europe, but nevertheless! The easiest and cheapest way to visit this city! When skating on the Bosphorus is of course not pass words, kind of just class, even when I came back in, I asked visitors as a city, I could not even explain immediately, i.e. to formulate my thoughts, this is you need to go and see! For 1 day course doesn't really see everything, but at least to get acquainted with the city and decide on future ride next time or not! This know how our Saint Petersburg, for 1 time doesn't really show it all! In early October, is already cooler wear a jacket that is not purged! Comfortable, too, has not been canceled and ☔ with yourself, it's going to be no harm! If possible, if you can, come here again!
