Hop out of your coach and head inside the market while breathing in its heady aromas of fragrant spices and herbs. Hear tips for interesting stalls to visit from your guide, and then enjoy roughly 45 minutes of free time to explore and shop at leisure.
After shopping and sightseeing around the famous souk, travel by coach to the banks of the Bosphorus strait for your cruise. Learn about the famous stretch of water that straddles both the Asian and European continents as you travel, and then board your sightseeing boat for the cruise.
Take a seat out on deck or inside the cabin, and cruise past an impressive selection of Istanbuls showpiece sights. Look out for Dolmabahe Palace with its decadent faade as well as 15th-century Rumeli Hisar Fortress and Beylerbeyi palace where Ottoman-era sultans spent their summer vacations. Your route takes in sights on both the European and Asian shores and, in addition to Istanbuls big-name attractions, the cruise also passes some of the citys lesser-known gems: mosques, fortresses, palaces and more.
Having admired the sights of the Bosphorus strait from the water, return to land and finally finish your experience with a hotel drop-off.
