What You'll Do
  • Discover magical Istanbul and signature sights such as the Blue Mosque Hagia Sophia
  • Explore the Grand Bazaar
  • Enjoy a half-day tour of the UNESCO site of Sultanahmet Old Istanbul, with an extensive guided walking tour
Be transported to magical Istanbul for a morning walking tour, in which you will take in signature sights such as the Blue Mosque Hagia Sophia, the Grand Bazaar and the UNESCO site of Sultanahmet Old Istanbul.
What to Expect
You will be picked up from your hotel to first visit the Hagia Sophia Museum. Built in the 6th century A.D. and then converted into a mosque in 1453, it was the first large domed building of the world and religious focal point of the Orthodox Church for 1000 years. We learn its history from our expert local guide, and have a look at its unique Byzantine and Turkish decoration. Unlike most city tours, your guide will also take you to the upper galleries.

You'll enjoy a short walk from here across to Blue Mosque, which owes its fame to the exquisite blue Iznik Tiles adorning its interior walls. The hippodrome is also nearby. Here, you see an Egyptian Obelisk and the ancient Roman Snake Column, which used to promote regional power during horse chariots races. Next, you will see the German Fountain, which was a gift from Kaiser Wilhelm 2, and learn about his involvement with Istanbul.

You will then see the exciting Grand Bazaar. Following the introduction by your guide at Turkey’s biggest oriental carpet export center, you will have some free time to browse its 1,200 spice and gold shops. If time permits, you may have a short stop to an Istanbul leather wholesaler firm. After the tour, you will be transfered back to your hotel. Please note that the order of the sights visited may be changed according to queues.
