Know More about this tourYou will start your tour with a complimentary pick-up from your accommodation and then travel by coach to Sultanahmet. You will meet your guide and make your first stop at the Topkapi Palace. The palace allows you to touch the history of the whole empire and opens the veil of secrecy on the mysterious East. It was here that 25 sultans lived and ruled; a dynasty was established, reached its height of greatness and declined; it saw the heart of Islam; plots were hatched; and the eyes of Europe, Asia and Africa were turned throughout three centuries.
The tour will be continued by visiting the Blue Mosque. It covers 250 square metres and has 260 stained glass windows, eight gates, a courtyard, 30 domes, 2000 iznik ceramic tiles with 50 different images of tulips, and a mihrab carved from a single piece of marble. It took seven years to construct and was designed by a talented architect who was a student of Sinan. Admire a special time by walking in the heart of historical part of Istanbul and get some great shots of old city. You will learn the legends of Istanbul by listening your guide and finally you will finish your tour with a drop-off at your accommodation.
