About this experience

Take this combo tour and see the best Istanbul can offer! Visit elegant palaces and explore the city from the sky, thanks to the panoramic cable car!

The Dolmabahçe Palace, an unusual blend of different European architectural styles, was built between 1843-1856 by Karabet Balyan, the private architect of Sultan Abdulmecid.
The three-storied mansion displays a symmetrical plan and has almost 300 rooms and 43 halls. In the past, the palace did stand the flow of time and it maintained its original decorations, furniture, as well as the silk carpets and drapes. During its golden age, they say it overwhelmed all other palaces in the world in luxury and style.

Drive by bus to Golden Horn:
The Golden Horn has played an essential role in the growth of Istanbul: a natural harbor working as a geological military defense. The inlet divides the European bank into two. It is about 8 km long, and the widest part is the entrance from the Bosphorus. We will drive along the coast, experiencing the amazing panoramas.

Cable Car & Pierre Lotti Hill: The drive along the coast is far from being our single point of view! We will also take the scenic Cable Car, named after the famous French writer! You will see the landscapes from the sky and you will love the magnificent panoramas of Golden Horn and Istanbul as a whole.

Bosphorus Tour on Boat:
Our third point of view of Istanbul will be the sea! Come with us and navigate the waterway separating Europe and Asia. From the Bosphorus, you will see the shore with aged wooden villas, palaces of marble, fortifications, and small fishing villages: a charming variety of panoramas showing the story of the city. During the cruise, you will admire the beautiful Dolmabahce Palace, and further along, the parks and imperial pavilions of Yildiz Palace. You will enjoy the beauties of Istanbul from a unique perspective.
