We went this tour with our group of friends (10 people) It was excellent experience about the sites and visit the Dolmabahce Palace and also, Hunting place of Ottoman. Touring and tour guide were excellent. It was the different experiences with a professional tour guide, safety driving. At the end of the tour, we liked the touring in the city by car and visiting the Dolmabahce Palace and Yıldız Royal Garden, Tour guide wanted to take us to the highest hill of Istanbul for Panoramic view but we didnt have time to go. He said that is a place you will never find such a beautiful looking from Istanbul. I think it is also a place MUST DO in Istanbul. For us next time.

One of my friend recommended me to visit this palace and he was explaining and was not finishing this explaining about the palace. I was wondering to come to Istanbul and be in this palace. It was realy night to see and have informaiton about the arch of the palace. He was right. I liked the palace and location of it. I recommend to every one who comes to Istanbul, should see it.
