Description

Discover vibrant Istanbul—Turkey's largest city—and soak up the history and culture brimming around every corner. From popular sights to hidden gems, this guided walking tour ensures you see the finest of what this Turkish metropolis has to offer.

Meet your guide and head for the ancient Hippodrome. After ample exploration, make your way to historic Divanyolu—a Roman highway designed by Emperor Constantine in 300 AD, before stopping at the Grand Bazaar, a buzzing marketplace boasting 4,000 shops, thought by many to be the world’s first shopping centre.

Wander through some of the backstreets of the Grand Bazaar, internationally known as the first-ever shopping centre and showcasing an incredible array of goods in its 4,000 shops. Stop by the book bazaar, where the first printed book in Turkey was sold in 1729.

Your Istanbul tour then takes you to the magnificent Süleymaniye Külliyesi, where you stop off at the original Turkish baths built as part of the mosque complex, and learn all about this ritual of times past. Your guide provides a local insight into Islam before whisking you off to try Turkish tea in a tea house that has amazing views of the city.

Next, visit the small and stunning Rustem Pasa Mosque. The first octagonal plan mosque by the great Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan, the interior is covered with some of the most exquisite iznik tiles ever produced.

Complete your tour near the Spice Bazaar, get some last-minute tips from your guide and explore further at your leisure.
