Istanbul Tour: Old City, Bosphorus Cruise & Cable Car

We'll pick you up from your hotel in the center of Istanbul at around 9:30 am, where we'll set off on a bus ride through the Old City.

Accompanied by your guide, you'll head to the Hagia Sophia Grand Mosque for a guided tour of this 6th-century building. Did you know that it was originally built by Emperor Justinian as a Greek Orthodox church? It was even the largest church in the world! You'll also see the tomb of Abu Ayyub al-Ansari, inside the Eyüp Sultan Mosque.

You'll continue with a guided tour of another temple: the famous Blue Mosque. You'll admire its six imposing minarets and its ceramic tiles, of which there are over 20,000, as well as discover many other curiosities. You'll also walk through the Grand Bazaar, the oldest and largest covered bazaar in the world. After some free time in the Bazaar, you'll enjoy a delicious typical Turkish lunch.

After having a bite to eat, you'll board a boat for a cruise on the Bosphorus offering unique vistas of the city. Then, you'll take a bus ride to Pierre Loti Hill offering an incredible view of the Golden Horn. Just wait until you see the view of the city as you descend by cable car!

The tour in Istanbul will end at your hotel at 6:30 pm.
