Start your journey by downloading your app and following the maps to find your way to all the top attractions along the tour route (download instructions received via after booking).

Begin your tour at the Obelisk of Theodosius a place that marked the beginning of the hippodrome. Be enchanted by the Blue Mosque. The Hagia Sophia will amaze you with its architecture, acoustics, and fascinating history.

Stop outside the Topkapı Palace Museum. See the Vilayet Mosque that will enchant you with its peculiar color. Learn about the Mausoleum of Sultan Mahmud II.

Admire the much photographed Galata Bridge crossing the Bosphorus Strait. Also, see the nearby Galata Tower, one of the oldest towers in the world.

At each attraction, solve a location-based riddle to unlock the following location. Work as a team and use logic, imagination, observation, and problem-solving to make your way around the city. Along the way, you can stop for a coffee and lunch or a break at any time.

We enjoyed the activities, the program exceeded our expectations. Having into account that the team was international... they all loved it!

Very basic tour. You solve some quests, but that’s all. No other interactions and not possible to play it nice as a team. Also the app is very average - maybe even less.
