Full Day Private Ottoman Istanbul Tour

4.5 / 5 total 1700 reviews
Duration: 7 to 9 hours
Product code: 2405
Overview

The tour begins with a pickup from your central Istanbul hotel. Meet your private guide and settle into your private, air-conditioned vehicle. If you’ve decided to visit the Hagia Sophia during its regular opening hours, make your way first to this incredible UNESCO-protected building.

Be awed by the soaring dome and bright mosaics as you discover its tangled history. Built as a Christian basilica by the Emperor Justinian in the 6th century, this magnificent edifice was then transformed into a mosque by the Ottomans. Continue to the beautiful Blue Mosque, whose six minarets are a popular fixture on Istanbul’s skyline. Look inside for a guided tour of the beautiful interior.

Stop by the Hippodrome, and then visit the Topkapi Palace. This opulent palace was the basis of the Ottoman Sultans for more than 400 years and boasted ornamental courtyards, opulent chambers and precious treasures that bear witness to the sultans’ wealth and pampered lives. Explore the chaotic corridors and browse the colourful stalls hawking lanterns, carpets, leather and much more.

Have a Turkish coffee and then stroll along the waterfront and admire the beautiful views over the Bosphorus Strait.
