Covid-19 Update

Explore Istanbul in three fascinating ways on this action-packed, 3.5 to 4-hour sightseeing tour by boat, coach and cable car. Take an amazing cruise between the two continents of Europe and Asia. Sail along the Bosphorus by the Dolmabahçe and Beylerbeyi Palaces, wooden villas and mansions, all the way up to the Rumeli Fortress near the Black Sea. See imposing Rumeli Fortress, Yildiz Palace and wooden Ottoman houses. Then head back to shore to wonder at the ancient City Walls, iron-paneled St Stephen's Church and colorful former Jewish district on a coach tour to the Golden Horn. As a natural and extremely secure harbor, the Golden Horn has played an important role in the development of Istanbul. The inlet separates the European shore into two, is approximately 8 kilometers long and its widest part is the entrance from the Bosphorus. Two streams drain into this inlet at its far end. Finish with a memorable cable car ride up Pierre Loti Hill, named after a famous French wirter, as you take in the spectacular views of the city and the Golden Horn spread below.
