Istanbul Asian Side Tour + Beylerbeyi Palace
At the scheduled time, we'll pick you up at the hotel and head east towards the famous Bosphorus Bridge, which connects the western part of Istanbul with the eastern part. This viaduct, built in 1988, is more than a kilometer long and is the main connection between the Asian and European parts of Turkey.
Once we arrive on the Asian side, we'll enter the Beylerbeyi Palace. This complex on the banks of the Bosphorus Strait is the main attraction of the eastern part of Istanbul. While admiring its beautiful marble facade, we will review the history of Sultan Abdülaziz, who ordered the construction of the palace in the nineteenth century.
We'll also explore the royal quarters of this summer residence, passing through its large central halls. Inside Beylerbeyi we'll find stunning Egyptian rugs, Bohemian crystal chandeliers, and Chinese porcelain.
We'll leave the palace behind and enter the Üsküdar district. We will take a stroll in this colourful district on the Bosphorus bank before we head back to the western part of Istanbul.
We will bid farewell around 12 pm in the Taskim area.
The tour includes free pickup in most areas of Istanbul. You can see the map here. If you are staying outside the indicated area, we'll inform you of the meeting point once you have made your reservation.
