A trip to Turkey would not be complete without a visit to some of the most famous and classic attractions of Istanbul on a Luxury Half Day Private Tour. It begins with a pick-up service from central Istanbul hotels, Istanbul Cruise Port, Ataturk Airport or designated City Centre meeting Point.

Hagia Sophia or as it is also known "Church of the Holy Wisdom" is the first stop. This was once a Byzantine church, Ottoman Mosque and now a museum. It is regarded to be among the greatest of buildings in the world. There are fabulous mosaics, with the most well known being the De√ęsis Mosaic.

The Blue Mosque, also known as Sultan Ahmet which is the next port of call, is the most famous, important and biggest Mosques of Istanbul. This stunning architectural wonder has six elegant and slender minarets and cascading domes. It was built in the 17th century starting in 1609 and finishing 1616.

The third stop is the Hippodrome which was an arena for chariot races and now a park and popular meeting place. Some of the features remaining include a fountain pre-Hagia Sophia and an Egyptian Obelisk dating from the 15th century B.C., initially from Egypt, brought to Constantinople by the Emperor Theodosius who has his figure carved on the pedestal.

A first class tour, we were picked up from our hotel in Istanbul and instantly made friends with our guide Ayse she was a pleasnt young girl full of knowledge and history about her hometown the driver was a very pleasant man who offered us water when we got in. Arriving at the the first attraction the Hagia Spohia it was an interesting place to see so beautiful inside with so much to take in from there we went to the Blue Mosque an amazing piece of arcitecture what a building our guide told us we must cover up going inside but there was also a small kiosk type where the woman and men could take long skirts and head scarfs for the ladies you could spend the whole day there watching everyone pass through and the peace and tranquilty of the place was super. We visited the Hippodrome also an attraction that can be missed it was interesting to hear all the information about it and how it came about. The last stop was a piece of heaven for my wife Shopping !! the Grand Bazaar a hidden gem of many twists and turns and delights full of souvenirs to carpets and leathers bags and many many gifts to take home amazing and a must see on a trip to Istanbul best of luck to Ayse as she was fantastic a marvellous tour.
