Guided Bus Tour

At the agreed time, we'll pick you up at the meeting point you choose upon booking, ready for our Turkish adventure! In the first part of the tour, we'll explore Istanbul by bus to get an overarching view of both the modern and historic parts of the city.

Our first stop is the country's most famous street, İstiklal Avenue, or Independence Avenue, where you'll have plenty of free time to wander and explore. Then, we'll head to the Sultanahmet district, one of the city's most beautiful areas.

Around midday, we'll stop for lunch at a traditional Turkish restaurant. The menu will include soup or a cold appetizer, börek (a savory-filled pastry), chicken kebab, meat or vegetables with rice, and baklava or fruit. 

After refueling, we'll visit Topkapi Palace, the best reflection of Istanbul's imperial age and an important symbol of Constantinople's prominence as the capital of the Ottoman empire.

We'll see the various parts of the palace, like the kitchens, armory, religious relics, and treasures, learning about its history and discovering all of its particularities.

After seven hours of sightseeing, we'll end the tour in Sultanahmet or in the Taksim district.

Topkapi Palace & the Grand Bazaar

The government does occasional renovations of Topkapi Palace throughout the year, so certain sections may be closed during your visit.
