Istanbul in one day Tour
Istanbul in one day Tour
Full-day Istanbul in one tour begins with a pickup from your European-side hotel or by meeting your guide at a central location. Start with a brief orientation to the day ahead and then set off in your comfortable coach to your first destination.

Venture to the Blue Mosque, one of the most stunning sights in Istanbul. Admire its six signature minarets and many ornate Iznik tiles that come together to form its dazzling blue walls. Listen as your expert guide tells you about the fascinating history of this Ottoman-era mosque.

Then walk to the Hagia Sophia, a UNESCO-listed museum that was once a church and a mosque.

Next, stroll over to Topkapi Palace, a crown jewel of Istanbul. Explore its intricate corridors and intimate rooms where sultans once entertained elite guests—and were entertained by their harems.

Midway through the day, break for a traditional Turkish lunch.

Move on to the Hippodrome, where you can admire a granite Egyptian obelisk that was a gift to Istanbul. At one point, this location marked the epicenter of the city’s sports life and also served as a political center.

Follow your guide as he tells fills you in on the history of these historic places. Your final stop is also one of the most iconic: the Grand Bazaar. Stroll through its colorful alleys, more than 60 in all, in awe of the crafts, smells, sounds and sights. As one of the most famous souks in the world, you won’t want to miss this. Duck into leather, jewelry, and ceramic stores as well as spice stalls and other unique outlets. Say hello to the friendly local shop owners and craftspeople.

After the tour you will be transfered to your hotel or orginal departure point in Sultanahmet or Taksim.

Our guide was extremely informative. He opened our eyes to the history of Istanbul and answered all questions that were asked by the group. Over lunch, the other passengers on the tour also commented how well spoken and informative our guide was. The order of the tours was also great and the lunch was very well balanced with good flavours.
