About this experience
Live the best of Istanbul on this memorable experience that combines two best-selling tours making you save 10%! We will begin the experience with a full-day city sightseeing tour on our air-conditioned bus, passing by top Istanbul attractions like Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque.
After the end of the tour, you will enjoy a couple of hours of free time before heading to a renowned Istanbul restaurant, where you’ll sit down to try the traditional Turkish dinner, with 4 courses, while enjoying the performance of live folk music and belly dancing.
We will start the sightseeing tour in the morning, aboard a luxury coach, with an expert local guide. Our main focus will be on the Sultanahmet area, the historical districts. We are going to see the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Hagia Sophia Museum and the Blue Mosque. Our friendly guide will show you how Hagia Sophia’s fascinating Ottoman-era contrast with the Byzantine architecture of the Blue Mosque -- built to challenge it.
Then we will move underground the Basilica Cistern to explore Istanbul’s ‘sunken palace’ that featured in the James Bond movie From Russia with Love.
As you walk around its majestic columns, you will listen to the cistern’s colorful history with its many restorations over the years. (From Outside).
After a little break for lunch in a local Sultanahmet restaurant, we will move on to Topkapi Palace and go back in time to a world when sultans and their harems used to rule over Istanbul. We will explore the palace’s ornate Imperial Treasury, and then go outside to visit Istanbul’s Hippodrome.
Inside the arena, you will almost hear the sound of the chariot races, polo games, royal celebrations and brutal massacres that took place here, and visualize its ancient glory while walking around.
Our last destination of the tour is at the Grand Bazaar – one of the world largest covered markets and maybe the ancient one. Here you will find a wonderful place to shop, roaming around this amazing souk before returning to your Istanbul hotel by coach. You’ll have approximately two hours at leisure before your evening experience starts.
