Istanbul is not perhaps the most accessible city to stroll for first-time visitors who speak no Turkish and have no conception of its scale.

It requires a bit of skill to see the mosques, palaces, and museums conveniently since neither their opening times are consistent nor their locations congruent.

Once within, it would be entirely possible to waste a 
lot of time in aimless traipsing. These places are not self-explanatory and it is not apparent what went on where.

It is not clear either where to eat, or what to eat.

Istanbul is a walking city, and we’re a group of professional tour guides with official licenses :
