Full description

In this full-day tour, you’ll get to visit some of the city’s lesser-known but still picturesque sites with a friendly guide who will assist you and leave you with lots of time to get your angles right for the perfect photo op. Make sure to come prepared with your phone, power bank, and camera too.

The first stop is Kybele Hotel. This quaint hotel is known for its Ottoman-style design and colorful exterior. Head to the Henna Hotel rooftop next which is a great place for some cityscape photos.

The next stop is the Sirkeci Station. The historic station is a central transportation hub that features a grand design and impressive facade that is definitely worth a snap or two (or more). From there, head to the Uskudar Coast Walkway, a seaside promenade overlooking the Bosphorus strait.

Take in the lovely views and pose for some more shots before you head to the Kuzguncuk area. Once you arrive, wander along Icadiye Street, and marvel at the colorful shophouses and other beautiful residential homes.

Next, you’ll stop for lunch at a local restaurant before boarding a ferry to Ortakoy. This lively waterfront square is abuzz with people taking advantage of the open-air and social atmosphere. The last stop of the day is Karakoy, a harborside area known for its entertaining nightlife and brightly lit nightscape.
