We booked the Big Bus when we arrived in Istanbul at the bus.(on line we could have saved a few dollars but hadn't finalized plans at that time) Staff were fantastic, particularly helping us to make the payments with our credit cards as we had a clitch with those,and sorted some other trips with a better price too. We made the most of the service and did all we wanted too during our short trip to the city. The route is not always on the populer places, we discovered a lot of places on the bus. This gave us ideas too for other things to do in Istanbul. It worked really well for us and would recommend it to any other visitors.
