Expect to get an overview of Istanbul’s Ottoman history, and to visit some famous sites when joining this half-day excursion. The tour is available in the afternoon, and has an approximate duration of 4 hours. It begins with a pick-up service from your hotel. A guide welcomes you the bus and explains the details of the schedule. Please note that the guide will let you know important information about each of the sites, and answer your questions. The bus will drop you off at the first site, and from there you will enjoy an interesting and informative walking tour.
The first site to visit is the monument where the Sultans’ tombs are. These are found in small, mosque-like buildings in the courtyard of Hagia Sophia. Once you are inside, you will observe the sarcophagus of 5 Sultans and their family members. The interior is quite impressive, with colourful tiles and flower patters. It must be noted that the site is closed on Mondays, and the schedule is adjusted accordingly with a visit at Little Hagia Sophia Mosque. The schedule of this half day tour includes, also, a visit at the infamous Topkapi Place, one of the country’s most important sites. Now a museum, this palace used to be the mansion of some Ottoman Sultans. Inside, there is an impressive collection of exhibits from that era. Jewellery, paintings, items of everyday life, and costumes are some of the things you can expect to see. The building itself is an excellent example of Ottoman architecture and design. Its impressive size, the multiple rooms, and the outdoor area are about to excite you since the very first moments. After fours hours of sightseeing, you will arrive back at your hotel. By that time, expect to be full of interesting information and new images.

I joined this tour mainly because of the Topkapi and in the end I realised that there are many other, equally interesting, ottoman sites. I mean, wow! Ok, Topkapi was exactly what I expected. It’s enormous and a true architectural and design wonder. All the exhibits were stunning and each of them had its own unique history. We also went to the sultans’ tombs and the guide told us some interesting infos about them. This tour was a great addition to our schedule.
