What to expect

Meet your tour guide next to German Fountain (Alman Cesmesi) which is located in Hippodrome Square at 09:00am. He will be waiting you with the company logo so you will notice him easily and start the tour with the highlights of Istanbul;

The Hippodrome, where the chariot races were held during the Roman Empire.

The Blue Mosque, built in the early 1600s for Sultan Ahmet I, it is a truly magnificent masterpiece of architecture with amazingly delicate proportions for a building of such massive scale. The blue shade of the 27.000 pieces of Iznik quartz tiles give the mosque it’s popular name and 6 towering minarets give it its uniquely recognizable structure.

Hagia Sophia, the renown structure built in the 6th century by the Emperor Justinian, which played a very important role in both the Christian and Islamic world. After the Ottoman conquest the bells, the altar, the iconostasis, and the sacrificial vessels were removed, and many of the mosaics were eventually plastered over to convert the church into a mosque first, then a museum, and now the structure has become a mosque for second time.

Topkapi Palace: more than just an imperial residence of Ottoman sultans, it was the seat of the Supreme Executive and Judiciary Council for almost 400 years. Topkapi Palace is a great monument of Oriental architecture, which houses exhibits of art, books, jewels, plates, costumes and the Treasury and the Holy Relics.

The Grand Bazaar, one of the largest and oldest covered markets in the world with over 4,000 shops. It was constructed in the 15th century and became the commercial hub of the trade between Asia and Europe.

Your tour will end at the Grand Bazaar.
