Small-Group Istanbul in One Day Tour Including Topkapi Palace and Hagia Sophia
From US$72.25
Overview

See six of Istanbul’s top attractions efficiently on this full-day guided tour. An air-conditioned coach conveniently takes you between locations, and your guide will explain the history of each sight. Visit the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern, Hippodrome, and Grand Bazaar, with a break at midday for a three-course lunch.

What to Expect

Begin your full-day tour with a pick-up at your European-side hotel or at a meeting point in central Istanbul. Your guide will give you a brief orientation to the day before you board your air-conditioned coach and head to Sultanahmet Square. Stop inside the Blue Mosque, with its six minarets and colorful tile work. Learn about the history of the Ottoman-era mosque from your guide.

Stroll across the square to Hagia Sophia, a museum that used to be a church and a mosque. Continue on to Topkapi Palace and discover its history as you wander through many ornate rooms.

Pause for a three-course traditional Turkish lunch.

Pass through the Hippodrome and admire the Egyptian Obelisk. Make your way to the ancient underground Basilica Cistern.

Shop for traditional goods and meet shopkeepers at the Grand Bazaar.

Your tour concludes with a drop-off at your hotel or in a central location.

I've been on many tours over the years in different countries and this is by far the worst one I've attended. Firstly, if you notice, there are just 14 written reviews but further up on the page it shows 1,229 reviews. Incredibly suspicious and I...More

A bit disappointing

I was really looking forward to this tour but it fell short of our expectations. We were introduced to most of the sites from the side and left to our devices to stroll in them with a time limit. Hardly felt like a guided tour....More
