Full description

Admire Istanbul after dark with this unique van, ferry, and walking tour. Watch the city lights come on as you take a ferry past sights like Galata Tower, St. Stephen Church, and St. George's Cathedral. Take a stroll down Istiklal street to soak in the atmosphere of Istanbul's nightlife.

Enjoy the convenience of being picked up from your centrally located hotel in Istanbul at 6:00 PM. Relax on the short drive to Karakoy. Board a ferry that cruises along the Golden Horn estuary.

Look out from the boat for sweeping views of Istanbul's lights. See Galata Tower, St. Stephen Church, St. George's Cathedral, the seat of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople, and the Rahmi Koc Museum.

After your ferry cruise, disembark at Sutluce and make your way to Taksim square to begin your walking tour of Istiklal street. Stroll down a busy street that is packed with shops, cafes, restaurants, bars, pubs and cinemas.

Finish your tour at Galata Tower where you have the option to purchase a ticket to admire the Romanesque architecture from the inside. Return to your accommodation or a centrally located restaurant at the end of your tour.
