Know More about this tour

Your Guide is going to pick you up from your hotel and you will walk to Old part of Istanbul and visit:
Hagia sophia:
The Church of Holy Wisdom, Hagia sophia is one of the most prominent monuments in the world in terms of art and the history of architecture. It was used as a mosque during Ottoman period and nowdays it is one of the most visited museums in the world.

Byzantine hippodrome: Hippodrome provided an unrivalled opportunity to show people the emperors power, wealth and generosity in lavish public entertainments that went on for days at a time, often coinciding with public holidays. The Egyptian Obelisk, the serpentine column and the German fountain of Willhelm II are sites to be visited. Blue mosque: its official name is the Sultan ahmed mosque, but it is known more popularly as The blue mosque because of the blue tiles that decorate the inside walls. There are some 20,000 or so of them, handmade ceramic tiles that decreased in quality over time due to the sultan fixing the price in advance, and not taking inflation into account.

Grand bazaar: The oldest and the largest covered market place in the world with more than 4000 shops where handmade carpets, jewelery, leather and souvenirs are sold.

Topkapi palace: The former imperial residence of Ottoman Sultans and one of the oldest and the largest remaining palaces in the world. Today, it is used as a museum to exhibit works of art and many priceless artifacts. The harem section is not included in this tour.

Underground Cistern:
The cistern was known in Byzantium as the Basilica cistern. Justinian was the founder of the largest underground cistern, built after the Nika Revolt in 532. The number of the inhabitants of Constantinople increased and there was a problem with water supply, so the Basilica cistern was used to store water for the Great Palace.

Hagia Sophia is Closed on Mondays
Topkap Palace is closed on Tuesdays
Grand bazaar is closed on Sundays

    E rim is a fantastic guide. She showed us everything we wanted to see and also made some great suggestions based on what we personally found interesting. She was so nice and so full of great information. We learned a lot and had a great day. I would recommend her to my friends! Thanks Evrim

    My mother and i had a trip planned for early June to Istanbul. Neither one of us had much knowledge on what to do in the City. We went on a 2 day walking tour of Istanbul with Didem. She was amazing! She was very knowledgeable and made the tour super interesting. Didem was very patient with us, and always answered all of our questions. She even went out of her way to take us to a jewelry store when i mentioned i was interested in a ring. Ertunga was also very helpful in the whole planning process and always respond in a timely manner. I highly recommend Ertunga’s company when looking for a guide in Istanbul.
