Turkish Airlines offers a lovely free tour when you have a long layover, inclusive with breakfast, lunch and on certain days a skip the line tour of the Hagia Sophia (and the line was really long on the day we visited).

It was a fast tour done entirely in the bus, except one stop at the bosphorus to take pictures, and one bigger and useless at a cafeteria to spend money with a bit of nice views. Maybe if they used that time to take us...More

epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
