Know More about this tour

Istanbuls Old City, brimming with Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman history, is the best place to experience the layers of this city. Beginning in the morning, this private 5-hour tour, led by a local guide, will take you through Istanbuls historical highlights. You will be collected from your hotel or ship by a private vehicle prior to the tour and then travel by foot, hearing revealing facts and historical anecdotes about the city.

Revel in the complex tile work of The blue mosque, a functioning holy site that still inspires awe. This stunning structure has six minarets, a large courtyard, and colorful carpets.

Discover the wonder of the Hagia sophia, a rose-colored 6th-century church that became a mosque under Ottoman rule, before finally transforming into a museum. Learn about the intricate well-preserved mosaics that glitter on the Hagia Sophias walls and its distinction as one of the most celebrated buildings in the world.

Continue on to Topkapi palace, the imperial residence of Ottoman Sultans and a sprawling museum complex. Here you can explore the quiet tiled halls of the Harem, an impressive collection of porcelain and ancient artifacts, and a Bosphorus view.

Explore the vast Grand bazaar, a historic covered market brimming with tempting stalls and artisan objects. You will have a chance to shop here, whether you covet a handmade carpet or a Turkish coffee pot.

At the conclusion of your tour, the car will return you to your hotel.
