When booking this full day experience, you can expect to unfold Istanbul’s history, feel its exceptional vibes, and admire the city’s different aspects.

Popular for the vast variety of spices that are being sold, this bazaar is one of the most famous in Istanbul. Take your time to purchase some great souvenirs, and make sure that you will become an expert in bargaining. After the 45-minute visit at the bazaar, get ready for the ultimate experience in Istanbul, a cruise in the Bosporus! The boat trip lasts for 1 hour and 30 minutes, during which you can expect to see the imposing mansions on the sides of Bosporus, and feel excited for sailing between two continents. The cruise is also a great alternative for sightseeing, as you can expect to observe, among others, the Ciragin Kempinski, Dolmabahce Palace, and Leander’s Tower.
After an energising lunch break full of delicious flavours, the bus will drive you towards the Asian side of Istanbul. The road trip provides a great opportunity for some extra views on the Bosporus, as you will be passing over the bridge. Once there, expect to visit Beylerbeyi Palace Museum. Back in the Ottoman era, this building used to be the summer mansion of the sultans, but today it forms an excellent example of Ottoman design, decoration, and architecture. The schedule includes, also, a visit at Camlica Hill to get some breath-taking, panoramic views. From there, you can snap some photos of the Bosporus and of the two continents. By the end of the last stop, the bus will drive you back to the European side, and drop you off at your hotel.
