Istanbul in One Day Sightseeing Tour (8 hours):
Start your day with an 8-hour city sightseeing tour by luxury coach, seeing all of Istanbul’s top attractions with an expert local guide. Focusing on the Sultanahmet area of this incredible city, your tour visits the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Hagia Sophia Museum and the Blue Mosque. Contrast Hagia Sophia’s fascinating Ottoman-era and Byzantine architecture with the extravagance of the Blue Mosque -- built to rival it. Admire the famous mosque’s six minarets and interior Iznik wall tiles while your guide tells you tales of the demanding sultan who designed it.

Then head underground inside the Basilica Cistern to discover Istanbul’s ‘sunken palace’ that featured in the James Bond movie From Russia with Love. As you stroll around its magnificent columns, hear of the cistern’s colorful history with its numerous renovations over the years.

After a break for lunch at a Sultanahmet restaurant, continue to Topkapi Palace and step back in time to a world when sultans and their harems ruled Istanbul. Explore the palace’s ornate Imperial Treasury, and then head back outside to visit Istanbul’s Hippodrome. Hear of the chariot races, polo games, royal celebrations and brutal massacres that took place here, and envisage its former glory on a walk around the grounds. Last stop of the day is at the Grand Bazaar – one of the world largest covered markets. Find the best spots to shop in this amazing souk before returning to your Istanbul hotel by coach. You’ll have approximately two hours at leisure before your evening experience starts.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2014

Istambul is a wonderful place to visit!! I picked Monday to do the sighseeing tour and some places were closed, nevertheless, I was lucky enough to see very interesting places and I also had a good time with the other people on the tour, they were very nice. The guide was not that friendly and he did not talk a lot during the time we were moving from one place to another, but at the end due to the traffic jam he was very kind and he walked me to my hotel, otherwise I had been lost. The dinner and turkish show is a very nice experience, the restaurant is a very interesting place and the show includes the traditional turkish songs and moves, I wouldn't like to give more details because I want you to be surprised as I was, definately the best of the day!
