Absolutely the best way to see Istanbul. Couldn't have done it without the big bus Istanbul. I only had a few days in Istanbul so it seemed like the best option.The blue mosque,the Egyptian spice market and the Bosphorus Bridge and the grand bazaar is a must.Istanbul is beautiful,the people are warm and the food is excellent and I'm definetly going back again. I would highly recommend.
