Overview

Start your day of adventure with pickup from your hotel. Hop into your air-conditioned vehicle and set off on your journey to see Istanbul’s greatest landmarks.

See the incredible Hagia Sophia, one of the greatest architectural monuments in the country, and the largest cathedral in the world at one point in history. Then visit the Blue Mosque, and be amazed by the 20,000 blue tiles that adorn this stunning structure.  Continue to the Hippodrome of Constantinople.

Discover the fascinating history of a building that once hosted chariot races and large political events. Inside the Hippodrome you will see the Obelisk of Theodosius, the Serpent Column, and the German Fountain. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant before continuing on to Topkapi Palace, and extraordinary place that was once the centre of the Ottoman Empire.

Explore the rooms of the palace, exhibiting rich collections of porcelain, robes, weapons, shields, armour, Ottoman miniatures, Islamic manuscripts, and jewellery. Lastly, enjoy a visit to the Grand Bazaar, one of the largest covered markets in the world with more than 60 streets and 5,000 shops. Here you will find clothing, rugs, antiques, jewellery, fabric, and more.

Your tour concludes with a relaxing drive back to your accommodation.
