Full description
Start your tour going over the Bosphorus Bridge. Drive on the bridge and enjoy the beautiful view when crossing the bridge from Europe to Asia. It is 1704 meters long and was the 4th longest in the world when it was completed. This is a unique chance to step from one continent (Europe) to another (Asia) in just 2 minutes. Then take a short break for lunch at the top of Camlica Hill. Camlica Hill, the highest point in Istanbul, invites you to a beautiful panoramic view of Istanbul city and the Bosphorus. Then drive through Ortakoy, a cosmopolitan area near the waters of the Bosphorus. Turks, Greeks, Armenian's and Jews are live here and the neighborhood hosts many different religions. it is also a popular spot for locals with art galleries, night clubs and restaurants. Arrive at your final stop, Dolmabahce Palace, the first European style palace in the Ottoman Empire. It was built by Ottoman Sultans between 1843 and 1846. It is the last residence of the Ottoman Sultans with 365 rooms and 22 saloons. It is also famous for its great collection of European art.

Too long spent at lunch restaurant, waiting for food

Palace very interesting, pity no photos allowed. Guide helpful and informative but too long spent waiting fo food at restaurant and seemed to spend long time in garage car park waiting for connection. Also time of pick up from hotel kept changing and we were waiting for over an hour.

A vista do almoço era realmente muito linda, porém não podíamos nem ver o cardápio (tinham 5 opções pré definidas e água, nada mais) e todos da excursão tinham que sentar juntos na mesma mesa, o que foi bastante desconfortável. A visita guiada ao palácio não foi lá essas coisas... Não valeu a pena o preço que pagamos para o serviço que tivemos.
