Tour Description

Enjoy a full-day sightseeing tour of the Ottoman palaces and Byzantine neighborhoods of Istanbul, including a cruise on the Bosphorus Strait between Asia and Europe. Transfer from port to the Spice Bazaar (Egyptian Bazaar), a bustling marketplace constructed in the 1660s as part of the New Mosque complex. Rents from the shops went towards the upkeep of the mosque and its charitable activities.

Next, cruise down the Bosphorus Strait, looking at Asia on one side and Europe on the other. Marvel at the marble palaces, wooden villas and luxury apartments that line the waterway. Pass under the Bosphorus Bridge and see Beylerbeyi Palace, built by Sultan Abdulmecid on the site of a wooden mansion. Admire its blend of eastern, Turkish, and western motifs.

Step from one continent (Europe) to another (Asia) in just 2 minutes, and go to Camlica Hill for panoramic views of the city and its famous body of water.
