Full description
After having your breakfast at hotel, meet your guide at your hotel's reception area and start this unforgettable tour.

Your first stop will be an Egyptian-style spice bazaar. The spice bazaar is a particularly popular stop on most tours of Istanbul. The spice market doesn't stop at herbs and spices. A wide variety of goods fill these stalls, and you're likely to pick up a wonderful souvenir.

Following your visit to the spice market, discover the nature of Bosphorus. Sweeping from the Black Sea to the Sea of Marmara, the waters of Bosphorus are one of Istanbul's most awe-inspiring sights. Bospherus passes through the town center, dividing Asia from Europe as it goes.

The amazing views continue. Soon after beginning your tour, you will have views of the Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia and the Sultanahmet Mosque. As you approach the Bosphorus Bridge, you will look out over Ortakoy, one of Istanbul’s liveliest nightlife hotspots. Immediately beneath the bridge, discover Beylerbeyi Palace.

Traveling by cable car to the Pierre Loti Hotel, you will acheive an amazing view of the gloomy plain of Eyoub. Beyond a forest, the marble whiteness of its sacred mosque rises in the distance.

The city walls are one of Istanbul’s most impressive sights. They still stand at a considerable height despite the battering they have received over the centuries.

Finally, discover the baroque beauty of the Bosphorus at Dolmabahce Palace. The palace reveals the interest of Ottoman sultans in the West and features extensive gardens.
