Know More about this tour

You will be met by our professional licensed tour guide at your hotel or Istanbul port with your name sign and start for Istanbul trip. Istanbul, one of the greatest cities in the world we will start our tour by visiting the Rumeli Fortress, here at the narrowest part of the Bosphorus.

Mehmet the Conqueror had this fortress built in a mere four months during 1452, in preparation for his planned siege of Byzantine Constantinople, Mehmet the Conqueror ordered each of his three viziers to take responsibility for one of the three main towers. Once completed, Rumeli Hisar, in concert with Anadolu Hisar on the Asian shore just opposite, controlled all traffic on the Bosphorus, and cut the city off from resupply by sea from the north.

The tour will continue to the Anadolu fortress Perched above the village are the ruins of Anadolu Kavag a medieval castle with seven massive towers in its walls. First built by the Byzantines, it was restored and reinforced by the Genoese in 1350, and later by the Ottomans. As the straits are narrow here, it was a good choice for a defensive site to control traffic. Two more fortresses, put up by Sultan Murat IV, are north of here. Exposing a panoramic view of Istanbul, Bosphorus and Black sea from the best point of view. the tour continue to the Poyrazkoy, one of the villages nearest to the Black Sea and is located on the Anatolian side of the Istanbul. From the minaret a bridge leads out to the gun emplacements and ammunition stores and a great view. Although the village is located on top of a hill, there is a road leading to the beach just before the village. Poyrazkoy is an excellent place for a break or for shelter while sailing from Istanbul to the Black Sea.
