You don't always find good tour guides in Turkey. They can be as wonderful, as the man who took us to a full day dolmabahce palace and other places last October 9, or impolite, rude and bad-tempered as the man (in the picture) who took me today, October 11, to Princes Islands.

The group is much bigger than I expected (~60 ppl) I guess in order to maximize the space on the boat. I would rather take the boat with them but definitely not for the Dolmabahce Palace. First of all, you will only visit 2 out of 4 main parts in the place as advertised, which

Response from dreamcity-istanbul, Genel Müdür at Dolmabahce Palace and Bosphorus Sightseeing Cruise with Küçüksu Palace
Responded Jun. 17, 2019
Hello and thank you for your comment. Dolmabahçe Palace has 2 sections not four and in our tours we visit Haremlik which is the family house of the sultan, it is stated in our brochure . For the clock museum sometimes there are minor changes in the programme due to operational reasons and that day was very crowded it was not normal thats why the guides skipped that part . And for the küçüksu palace it says the garden ticket included which really is and it is written in brochure too . İt takes time to walk to the garden and walk back to the boat after 35 minutes is for meeting in front of the boat . We are sorry about inconvenience we are not trying to make excuses we wanted to make an explanation. Maybe you'll consider to rate us again in consideration of this information. Thank you again for your feedback have a nice day.

Tuba was awesome and this tour was a glorious full day! This was a comprehensive tour with knowledgeable and very friendly guide. The Bosphorus is glorious and Dolmabahce Palace should not be missed! At the end of the day we went to a leather shop in the old city walls. A
