Full description
Explore some of Istanbul's most iconic spots on this guided tour. See Maiden's Tower and scenic views from Çamlıca Hill. Explore the Asian/Anatolian Side of Istanbul including Bağdat Avenue. Complete your experience with a shopping tour at the high-ceilinged Emaar Mall. Meet your tour guide at your accommodation, then head to your first stop, Çamlıca Hill. Çamlıca Hill got its name from the pine trees in the area (Çamlıca means “pine” in Turkish). Take a walk while surrounded by the hill’s historic trees and local, colorful flora. Marvel at the panorama views of the Bosporus (Straight of Istanbul) and the rest of the city. Next, visit Maiden's Tower, found on a small island at the southern entrance of the Bosporus. No one knows who built this tower or why, but your tour guide will fill you in on what is known about this site. Afterward, head to Bağdat (Baghdad) Avenue. The one-way avenue with old plane trees is a large, open-air shopping center filled with shopping malls, department stores, fashion stores, elegant shops offering world-famous brands, restaurants of international and local cuisine, pubs, and cafes. Learn about Bağdat Avenue’s special spots with the help of your guide. Your tour guide can also guide you anywhere to have an optional lunch. Later, head to Emaar Mall, one of the newest malls of Istanbul on the Asian Side. It features high ceilings and wide shopping areas with many stores selling high-quality brand names. There is also a cinema complex, art gallery, and large food hall. At the conclusion of the tour, get dropped off back at your accommodation.
