About this experience

Come with us inside the heart and soul of Istanbul on a half-day tour of some of its major landmarks and monuments!
Follow our friendly and professional guide and visit the Topkapi Museum and Palace, and continue to the Sultans Tombs.
We will drive on our air-conditioned bus. The tour comprises free pick-ups from central Istanbul hotels, or the port, making it perfect for cruise ship passengers.

Topkapi Museum is the major museum in Turkey and the Balkan Peninsula, owning an incredible rich treasure-chest of artifacts of historical importance.
The museum is inside the magnificent mansion of the Ottoman sultans from the 15th to the 19th centuries. We will see the exquisite collection of crystal, silver, and Chinese porcelain, as well as dresses, are worn by the sultans and their families, includes the legendary jewels of the Imperial Treasury.

Afterward, we are going to visit Sultans Tombs. Made up of five tombs of the Ottoman Sultans, within the graveyard at St. Sophia, these ceramic panels are the most impressive examples of the 16th-century aesthetic with purple, red, blue and green flower patterns. We will also have the chance to see the prince's robes and a small piece from the Kaaba covers.
Note: on Mondays, the Sultans Tombs will be closed and we are going to visit Little Hagia Sophia Mosque instead.
