Full description
After pick up from your hotel, your tour commences at Istanbul’s famous Grand Covered Bazaar. This historic bazaar dates back to the 1460s. Selling endless antiques, jewellery, silver and gold, it is one of the liveliest and most colourful parts of the old city. And with over 58 covered streets and up to 400,000 visitors daily, Istanbul’s Grand Bazzar is one of the oldest, largest and busiest markets in the world. The next stop on the tour is the Spice Bazaar. Selling a wide variety of goods, this popular stop is a feast for the senses with its countless displays of colourful and aromatic herbs and spices. Your tour then continues to some of the best spots for Turkish carpets and leathers. Istanbul is a treasure trove of carpets, with carpet weaving being a form of craft prevalent in Turkey since ancient times. Known for their beauty and durability, a Turkish carpet not only decorates your home but is a piece of art in itself. Istanbul is also famous for its leather and suede garments and your tour will take you to some of the city’s best leather shops. At the conclusion of the tour you will be returned by air-conditioned coach to your hotel.
