Full description
Start your tour of Istanbul at the Hagia Sophia Museum, often referred to as the 8th Wonder of the World. Wander through the building's interior, which has been converted into a museum, and admire its beautiful art pieces including several Byzantine mosaics. Next, head to the Blue Mosque and see the 20,000 magnificent blue-toned tiles that give the mosque its name.  Later, head to the Hippodrome of Constantinople, the former political center of the city, where you can learn more about the city's ancient history and see artifacts from the Constantinople era. Learn more about Turkish culture at the Caferağa Medresseh. In the Egyptian spice market, soak up the sights and smells of this bustling food market. During your cruise along the Bosphorus, admire the Dolmabahçe Palace, Beylerbeyi Palace, and the Ciragan Palace Kempinski. Stop for a traditional lunch of meatballs before continuing your cruise, taking in views of ancient wooden villas and bridges and other unique maritime landscapes.

Our tour guide by then was Ms. Songul. An excellent guide to take you around the city as she’s knowledgeable. We were picked on time from the hotel we stayed. We were taken to Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia followed by lunch. Then to Spices Bazaar & Cruise to see Istanbul from Water. About 8 hours tour. Worth it.

Everything was perfect from start to finish. The guide we had in the morning was great but in the afternoon I was alone with another guide and that's fantastic too. He even spoke French! Thank you for everything, I recommend 100%
