    After the booking, we arrange the meeting point - which can be the airport, the cruise harbour, your hotel or any point of interest in the city.

    The tour starts in the old town, then we go to the Asian side of the city and as a closure, we see the Golden Horn.

    This programme is just a suggestion and can always be changed to your needs!

    But it surely is a great start for your stay in Istanbul. With all the sights and viewing points, it is a great way to get a first overview.

    We will start in the morning around 9am and will start with the following sights:
    Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Yerebatan Sarnici, Hippodrome Square (Sultan Ahmet Square) with its monuments and the Blue Mosque (Sultan Ahmet Mosque).

    I would now like to take lunch (not included) at the Çamlica Hill in an Ottoman café and restaurant. Of course, you will also be able to drink Çay.

    We then go to the Asian side of the city (transport not included).

    Our tour continues to the district Eyüb which is named after the legendary flag carrier of the prophet Muhammed Ebu Eyyûb el-Ensar.

    We visit the Eyüp Sultan Mosque and go to the terrific viewing point of the Piere Loti café by cable car.

    On this tour, you will not only see the monuments of Istanbul, but also experience the cosiness of the locals.
