A day full of history and important places!!! My wife and I enjoy sightseeing, so we booked this to explore many other places away from Istanbul. The flight was great, and we got a nice treatment during the day. The mosaic museum was incredible. The variety of exhibits is insane, and I think one needs days to tour around. We had a guide with us and explained the basics as were going from one place to the other. Another great site was the pool of Abraham, the design and architecture were phenomenal. Not to mention the aesthetics!! We both fell in love with the area, it’s full of sites and history. I recommend this tour to all of you!
