About
Live and breathe all aspects of vibrant Istanbul as you soak up its sights, sounds and aromas on this comprehensive tour of its many highlights. Split between Europe and Asia, this sprawling metropolis is a true melting pot of cultures and is home to over 14 million people. Bisected by the mighty Bosphorus and full of history and intrigue at every turn, Istanbul is an unforgettable spectacle to behold. First stop is the famous Spice Bazaar. With a strong Egyptian influence, exotic aromas of fruits, flowers and, of course, a multitude of spices fill the air and flood the senses. Boat Cruise leisurely down the Bosphorus past the marble palaces and ancient wooden villas, which date back to the Ottoman Empire. Lunch at Traditional Turkish restaurant Dolmabahce Palace, home to the sultans of the powerful Ottoman Empire and featuring an incredible 4.5 ton chandelier. Çamlica Hill for an awe-inspiring panoramic view over the city and the Bosphorus.

One nice site
Oct. 2020
Tour guide better very experienced with highlighting site. Tour is mainly by van. Lunch was OK at best. Only 1 site better would be 2 best would be 3. Boat cruise was weak because the boat's guide could not be heard or understood. Boat was also too far from shore.

Amazing tour with very helpful tour guide
Oct. 2019 • Family
The tour was very good. It was a mix of both walking and transport by the car. The tour people picked us up on time and dropped us back at the hotel too. Our tour guide, Ludwig was very helpful. He always made sure that the entire tour group was engaged (which had a very good amount of people in it, first 4 and then 8). He did a very good job of explaining the history behind the various places that we visited and also kept asking us questions to make sure that we were attentive. He was very joyful and took all of our pictures as well. The cruise was beautiful and so was Dolmabache palace. Would definitely recommend!!!
