Your experience


  • Discover the old town with your private guide
  • Stroll through the Grand Bazaar and tickle your taste buds at the spice market
  • Visit Hagia Sophia and the Topkapi Palace
  • Take a relaxed boat trip and admire the skyline of Istanbul


Your private guide will meet you in front of your hotel to show you the highlights of the city. First you will visit the Sophia Church (Hagia Sophia), which combines Christian and Islamic influences in a unique way. The former church was transformed into a mosque under Ottoman rule. Today you have the opportunity to walk through them and admire their beautiful mosaic tiles.

We continue to Topkapi Palace, a true masterpiece of oriental architecture. The palace is impressively decorated with gold, diamonds and shining emeralds. Learn about its origins and the history of its creation and visit the enchanting gardens.

Your personal guide will accompany you to the Grand Bazaar and the Spice Market. Both markets are extremely colourful and lively. Numerous regional products, including oriental spices, Turkish tea and sweets, but also a wide variety of souvenirs are waiting to be discovered by you. Stroll through the market stalls and browse at your leisure for suitable souvenirs.

After these exciting program points you recover on a relaxed boat trip over the Bosporus. From the water you can admire the skyline of the city and its sights like the Galata Tower, Karaköy Pier, Dolmabahçe Palace as well as enchanting Ottoman houses, bridges and mosques. Before you are taken back to the hotel, you will learn about the history of the buildings
