Discover Istanbul, the sprawling metropolis split between Europe and Asia, bisected by the mighty Bosphorus and full of history and intrigue at every turn. This is a true melting pot of cultures which over 14 million people call home.
This exciting tour will merge culture and history as you never thought possible. The first stop is the famous Spice Bazaar. Stroll through the bustling market and you can notice a strong Egyptian influence. Flood your senses with exotic aromas of fruits, flowers and a multitude of spices around every corner. Be sure to purchase some for yourself. Next, hop on to a boat and enjoy a leisurely cruise down the Bosphorus past marble palaces and ancient wooden villas, which date back to the Ottoman Empire. Glide past the imposing Rumeli Fortress, built in the 15th century by Sultan Mehmed II as he prepared to conquer Constantinople. Don’t forget your camera, as you are sure to capture some amazing shots of the river side!
Satisfy your hunger after the cruise with a delicious lunch at a traditional Turkish restaurant, sampling all the local delicacies that have made Istanbul famous. Post lunch, drive along the coastline to the majestic Dolmabahce Palace, home to the sultans of the powerful Ottoman Empire and featuring an incredible 4.5 ton chandelier before continuing over to the Asian side of Istanbul where you can place one foot in each continent before climbing the Çamlica Hill to savour breath-taking and awe-inspiring panoramic views over the city and the Bosphorus.
