Know More about this tour
Spend a full day exploring Istanbul’s Old City with a knowledgeable private guide. Your guide and driver will meet you at your hotel or cruise ship and bring you to Sultanahmet, Istanbul’s historic peninsula for a flexible and personalized full-day tour.
You can visit the Hippodrome, site of a former chariot-racing theater and a center of political activity in Constantinople. This space contains the Egyptian Obelisk, the Serpentine Column from Delphi, and the fountain of Kaiser Wilhelm II. Nearby is the 17th-century Blue Mosque, a distinct shape on Istanbul’s skyline with its six minarets. The mosque is active and open to the public, so you can explore its ornate blue-tiled interior.
Topkapi Palace is the former imperial residence of the Ottoman Empire, and currently is a sprawling museum. Perhaps you will explore the collection of artifacts and Chinese porcelain, or the tiled labyrinthine Harem. (This site is closed on Tuesdays, and replaced on that day by an excursion to the Basilica Cistern.)
Discover the iconic Hagia Sophia, a magnificent Byzantine church that became a mosque before it was converted into a museum. Learn about the golden religious mosaics and the impressive architecture. (On days the museum is closed, this site is replaced with the Basilica Cistern.)
At the conclusion of the tour, the driver will take you back to your hotel or cruise ship.
