Disappointing tour. We were hurried around and our 4 hour tour turned out to be 2.5 hours. Our guide hurried off at the end and there was no return ferry ticket back like was advertised.More

Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside
the elegant New Mosque (opened in 1665). Nearby, the famed Galata Bridge offers pedestrian access to urban delights across the river in Istanbul’s more residential and contemporary neighbourhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.
There was very little time to shop these locations. They are presented for their historical and cultural value. And, as stated before, no being dragged into shops or showrooms for "demonstrations" and other shopping traps.
