Explore the most awe-inspiring areas of Istanbul, one of the single most beautiful cities in both Europe and the Middle East – for it is the city that bridges these two contrasting continents.
Start by becoming acquainted with your knowledgeable guide, who will accompany you throughout the duration of this exciting tour and tell you all about the interesting history and fun facts behind every Istanbul landmark you come across. Your first destination is the Egyptian Spice Bazaar, where your senses will discover pleasures unbeknownst to them until that moment. Admire the staggering abundance and variety of not only spices, but also fruits, vegetables and flowers that line the exotic stores.
Istanbul straddles two continents and in this 5 hour tour you’ll cross to the Asian shore and discover the sumptuous Beylerbeyi Palace, summer residence of the Ottoman sultans before climbing to the summit of Camlica Hill for some unforgettable views over the Bosphorus and Istanbul. A knowledgeable guide will provide you with plenty of local insight into the fascinating history of the different attractions.
After being picked up from your hotel we’ll head straight for the Asian shore of the straits, crossing the impressive Bosphorus suspension bridge. Here we’ll explore Beylerbeyi Palace, situated right on the shoreline. This opulent palace was built in the 19th century as a summer residence for the Ottoman sultans and as place to entertain visiting heads of state. The Palace was designed in the Second Empire style and is somewhat more restrained in comparison to earlier Ottoman palaces. You will tour the reception rooms, harem and the men’s and women’s bathing areas.
