See the sights of Istanbul that you want to see on a flexible 6-hour tour with a private English-speaking guide. Design your own itinerary, or follow your guide to attractions such as the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, and Hagia Sophia.
What to Expect
Experience Istanbul with a private guide, and see the sights and neighborhoods that you want to see. Avoid the impassive standards of an organized group tour, and enjoy an intimate, personalized walking tour instead.
Once your booking is confirmed, your guide will contact you to arrange a meeting point. Then, choose from a sample itinerary, or design your own route. Start at approximately 09:00 for a walk through some of the city’s most iconic areas and landmarks, such as the Blue Mosque covered in intricate blue Iznik tiles. Go to the former residence of the Ottoman sultans at Topkapi Palace, and marvel at monuments from the Byzantine Empire, such as the Hippodrome.
Discover the extraordinary history of the Hagia Sophia, built as an Orthodox church before being converted to a mosque and now a city museum. See some of the lesser-known sights, such as the Little Hagia Sophia Mosque, Fatih Mosque, and New Mosque.
Alternatively, get to the heart of Istanbul’s spirit at vibrant Taksim Square, and learn about the city’s long and diverse history at attractions such as Galata Tower. The choice is yours. You can tour at your own pace, and avoid the waits that can sometimes occur during organized group tours.
