Ready to see the real Istanbul? This full day sightseeing tour includes a long, relaxing cruise along the beautiful Bosphorus Strait, including lunch. Take a walking tour of a top Ottoman attraction - the mighty Dolmabahce Palace. Get amazing city views from the cable car on Pierre Loti Hill, and snap top Istanbul attractions like Galata Tower and the Bosphorus Bridge.
Istanbul just got even more impressive! At the Dolmabahce Palace, you can explore the home of the last six rulers of the Ottoman Empire, and learn the history of one of the most glamorous palaces in the world.
Take a look at those sweeping panoramic city views from Çamlıca Hill or Yeditepe. See how the city's amazing architecture and greenery paints a picture from the Pierre Loti Hill cable car, and wow, doesn't the Bosphorus sparkle from where you're sitting on that cruise boat?
Lunch on the boat will be a tasty traditional meze with grilled chicken. Tuck in while you spot the famous sites, from Galata Tower to the Bosphorus Bridge, the huge and famous bridge that links Europe to Asia.
If the weather is good enough for a swim, enjoy a few laps in the Black Sea at Anadolu Kavagi, a sleepy fishing village that's home to ruined castles, fortifications and ancient temples. If the weather's not putting you in the mood for swimming, explore those medieval ruins of Anadolu Kavagi instead.
