Itinerary

Day 1

Tour starts at 13.30.

Bosphorus Cruise: For many Istanbulites, the Bosphorus is simply the most beautiful place in the world, and there’s no better way to see it, than by boat. This important waterway is such a defining feature of Istanbul and a cruise along it gives visitors a chance to delve into the city’s history. Lined with extravagant palaces, crumbling wooden mansions, lush gardens, tiny fishing villages and an unparalleled array of spots to watch the boats go by, the Bosphorus offers something for everyone. This tour offers the perfect blend of history, nature, culture and luxury.

Rüstem Paşa Mosque: The Rüstem Pasha Mosque is among the city’s architectural gems.  This is the first example of the great Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan building a mosque to an octagonal plan. Although small, it is beautifully proportioned  and the interior is covered in some of the most exquisite İznik faience(colored tiles) ever produced.

The tiles, made at the height of Iznik’s supremacy, have a good deal of the famous red color that was the envy of other tilemakers.

Mısır Çarşısı: Egyptian Bazaar, also known as the Spice Bazaar is colourful and authentic bazaar where various spices, dried fruits, basketry, jewelry, souvenirs and haberdashery is sold. The smells and tastes of Turkey are awaiting to be tried in this covered bazaar.
