Your experience

Description

To start the day perfectly, your guide will be happy to pick you up personally at your hotel. Your exciting day in Istanbul, full of interesting stories and famous sights, starts immediately.

First stop is the church Hagia Sophia, which combines Christian and Islamic influences. In the 6th century when the Christian church was built, it was converted into a mosque after the Ottoman conquest. Your eventful history is waiting to be heard from you. During your visit, don't forget to look at the beautiful Bryzant mosaics before leaving the church towards the Hippodrome.

In the past, the Hippodrome was the sporting and social centre of Constantinople, numerous horse races were held here. Today you can still admire some relics of the original construction. Another highlight is the Sultan Ahmed Mosque (Blue Mosque), a true masterpiece of Ottoman architecture. Visit the second largest mosque in Istanbul and enjoy the craftsmanship that has created its more than 20,000 tiles.

The city tour continues to the Basilica of Cisterna, the former water supply system of the Romans. At the Grand Bazaar, the largest and oldest market in the city with over 4000 shops, you have the perfect opportunity to buy souvenirs for you or your loved ones.

The tour ends with a visit to the Topkapı Palace, which served for centuries as the seat of the Ottoman Sultans. Admire its accumulated riches and learn about the history of the building before the day draws to a close. On request, your guide will accompany you back to the hotel
