Know More about this tour

Start your tour with a hotel pickup, and then head straight to the district of Eyüp by minibus. Your first stop here is Eyüp Sultan Mosque, the place of worship that’s widely considered to be Istanbul’s holiest site. Visited by thousands each day, the mosque is known for its colorful yet mystical ambiance.

Inside the building is the tomb of Eyüp El-Ensari -- a close companion of the Prophet Mohammed. After exploring the mosque, you’ll pay a visit to his famous mausoleum while leaning about his prominent religious role in Turkey.

Continue your tour with a walk to the Eyüp cable car, and then ride up it to the Pierre Loti Café, where the French poet Pierre Loti wrote while admiring views of the Golden Horn. Sit down and relax here, while soaking up commanding views of the horn-shaped fjord below that splits the city’s European shoreline into two.

Head down the cable car and stroll across to your tour’s final destination – Miniatürk! This kitsch yet fascinating museum showcases hundreds of models of Turkey’s most famous buildings. Aptly demonstrating the Turk’s pride for their heritage, the miniature park also boasts a selection of figurines that depict the country’s culture; see praying Muslims, Jews at a mosque, flower sellers and more!

Spend time exploring the site independently and then check out its popular shopping center for souvenirs to take home. Your tour then ends with a drop-off at your Istanbul hotel.

  • Je ne suis pas satisfaite de cette excursion.En effet, le transport etait mal organisé.On a perdu beaucoup de temps plus d'1 heure ce qui a eu comme consequence la visite de Miniaturk en à peine 1 heure!
    De plus l'excursion etait en français et en anglais.
    La visite de la mosquée etait aussi moyenne. Aucune emotion.
    Par contre le Miniaturk est excellent et super.trop court dommage.

  • Very good organisation of pick up from the Hotel.
    The guide was informative funny speeching French and English very good.
    Interesting sites

  • Nice and light tour. Our children loved the Miniaturk Park

  • Miniatures are presented well and of an excellent likeness.

  • I enjoyed the places visited on this tour, but found the tour guide indifferent in the extreme. He appeared not at all interested in us or any of the site we were visiting. getting information required pulling teeth.

  • i couldnt go on this tour as there werent enough people to fill it. I got a replacement day for it but this was on the same day i was doing the Istanbul in one day so was unable to make it and therefore cant comment on it.

  • Miniaturk, Eyup Sultan r.a.'s shrine and mosque as well as Pierre Loti Hill are sites not to be missed. It was nice day!

  • Enough time to wonder around the miniaturk park. Excellent guide with knowledge of history when visiting Eyub Al Ansari mosque and tomb.

  • I enjoyed this tour very much. We had a good tour guide, and the sites we visited were very interesting. Would recommend this tour.
