Full description
Meet your guide at your hotel or port and start the tour with the highlights of Istanbul. See the beautiful Hagia Sophia, admire the great blend of Christian and Islamic influences with beautiful interior of mosaics and significant history. Marvel at the Blue Mosque, a great monument of oriental architecture which houses 27,000 pieces of handmade blue tiles. The Grand Bazaar and the Spice Market are two colorful indoor bazaars and have lots of shops offering a variety of spices, rugs, purses, flavored teas, jackets, Turkish delight, nuts, as well as ceramics and small souvenirs. At the end of your tour, why not opt to take a cruise along the Bosphorus to see both Istanbul’s European and Asian sides, Galata Tower, Dolmabahce Palace, the Rumelian Fortress, old Ottoman villas, Bosphorus bridges, and mosques. Tickets can be bought on the spot and the cruise will take place in a public ferry (unless you book the Private Yacht option).

Ayla would have immediately earned 5 stars. She told everything with great enthusiasm and responded to us individually! The mom from Istanbul is really great! What makes me deduct a star is the dazzling "Bosporusfahrt" in the title. Because that's strictly not true. It is not included and there was no mention of it during the tour.

Memorable day in Istanbul

I did the day walking tour around Istanbul. I was picked up on time & sorted into tour groups based on languages, no hassles at all. Lunch was great. We saw many sights and didn't have to wait too long to get into the sights. What made the tour fantastic was definitely our tour guide, Ahmet. He was friendly, knowledgable and patient. I wanted to spend more time at the Grand Bazaar so he organised me to be dropped there once the tour ended and the hotel drop offs started.

Great experience, confirmation received within 48 hours.

I heard back from a Getyourguide representative within 48 hours who connected me with the local tour guide agency who confirmed my tour. I was picked up from my hotel right on time and went on a tour with a guide, Ahmet, who spoke perfect English and was very knowledgeable. Overall great experience.
