Full description
On this tour you will see Istanbul, the legendary Turkish capital, from an entirely different perspective. Admire the city from a bird eye's view, complete with all its attractions such as the Blue Mosque, Anatolian Castle, and the Serpentine Column. Choose from a 15 or 30-minute flight depending on how much time you want to spend in the air.

Istanbul was the capital of the Ottoman Empire and played a major part in the Roman and Byzantine empires. As a result its history and architecture is not only incredibly varied but also incredibly fascinating. Few cities have such a link between western and eastern cultures.
