Know More about this tour

Your guide will collect you at your hotel for your 4-hour exploration of traditional Turkish shopping culture. Begin at the historical Grand Bazaar, a magnificent covered market with over 3000 shops selling a range of items, from carpets to jewelry to leather goods. Shopping in the bazaar is a traditional experience, and your guide will help you negotiate with tradesmen, likely over a glass of Turkish tea.

Admire authentic carpets and kilims, made with natural fibers and dyes. Carpets and kilims can come in bright colors, though designs and prices vary widely. Find historical ceramics, perhaps dating from the 15th century and perhaps made by contemporary artisans in a traditional style. Buy unique pieces of jewelry from craftsmen trained in the traditional Ottoman style. Discover Turkeys thriving leather industry that produces handcrafted bags, jackets, coats and trousers at very affordable prices.

Continue to the Spice Bazaar, a smaller covered market that is fragrant with the smells of smoky red pepper, freshly ground cumin, sweet rose tea, and many other intoxicating scents. Explore aisles of brightly-colored Turkish Delight, crunchy piles of walnuts, and golden dried apricots. Your guide will take you to the best vendors, leading you through the winding streets that connect the two bazaars. Experience an authentic way of Turkish living that continues to thrive in the present day.
