Description

Explore Istanbul on a comprehensive 4-day tour covering major sites in and around the city. Enjoy convenient transport from the airport, accommodation in a 4-star hotel, and landmarks including Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, and a cruise through Bosphorus, the waterway separating Europe and Asia.

Day 1: Arrive in Istanbul and meet a driver at the airport to get transferred to your hotel, a 4-star accommodation in the city. Check in for the night and enjoy dinner.

Day 2: After breakfast, enjoy a full-day sightseeing tour of Istanbul, including a visit to the Blue Mosque, famous for its interior lined with blue tiles and history dating back to the Ottoman Empire. Afterward, visit the Hippodrome, the ancient centre of chariot races and political activities in the old city. Finally, visit Hagia Sophia, a 6th-century basilica constructed by Emperor Justinian, and one of the world's greatest architectural marvels.

Lunch is served at a local restaurant. Afterward, visit the Topkapi Palace, featuring jewellery, imperial treasury, Chinese porcelain, calligraphy, and more preserved in the imperial palace of the Ottoman Sultans. The day ends with a visit to the Grand Bazaar, the biggest souk in the world, with nearly 4,000 shops containing antiques, jewellery, and fine carpets.

Day 3: Eat breakfast and depart for a half-day tour of the city. Begin at the Spice Bazaar, a 17th-century market that has long smelled of exotic oils, herbs, and spices. Today you can also find nuts, honey, dried fruit, traditional sweets, and even herbal remedies.

Cruise through Bosphorus, the waterway that separates the continents of Asia and Europe, on board a boat. Keep your eyes peeled for Ottoman wooden mansions, marble palaces, foreign embassy estates, and small fishery villages. Also viewable from the water are Dolmabahçe Palace, Rumelihisari, and Beylerbeyi Palace.

The afternoon is free for you to enjoy free time. Eat dinner at the hotel before checking in for the night.

Day 4: Eat breakfast at the hotel and get transferred to your hotel. Reflect on your time in Istanbul as you prepare for your next adventure.
