Magnificent Istanbul Tour

Discover some of the most beautiful and iconic landmarks in Istanbul as you take a journey through time on this magnificent full-day tour.

Suleymaniye Mosque is the largest imperial mosque and one of the best-known sights of Istanbul. Built on the order of Suleyman the Magnificient by the Court Architect Sinan. The mosque crowns Istanbul on a hilltop dominating Golden Horn. In the garden, there are two mausoleums: Tomb of Sultan Suleyman I and his wife Hurrem Sultan (Roxelana). Outside the walls is the Tomb of Master Architect Sinan.

Blue Mosque, facing Hagia Sophia, famous with its blue Iznik tiles and unique with 6 minarets, built in the name of Sultan Ahmet. The visit is not possible on Friday because of the crowded noon prayer.

Hippodrome, the centre of sportive events (chariot races, athletics) and political activities of the old city. Serpentine Column, Obelisk of Theodosius and German Fountain of Wilhelm II are the monuments decorating the Hippodrome.

Turkish and Islamic Arts Museum is housed in the former palace of Ibrahim Pasa, the grand vizier to Suleyman the Magnificient. Before being converted into a museum, the palace served as a prison, a home for foreign ambassadors, a clothing factory, and barracks. Today, the museum contains beautifully displayed examples: illuminated Qurans and Turkish carpets collection which is rated as one of the best in the world, and attracts serious carpet enthusiasts. Historical Ottoman Mansion presenting a rich collection of Turkish Carpets.

Lunch served in a typical Turkish restaurant. Afternoon visit to Yıldız Palace overlooking the Bosphorus which became the fourth administration centre of the empire following the Old Palace, Topkapi Palace and Dolmabahce Palace. You will enjoy the gorgeous colours of the flowers of the Yildiz Palace Gardens and will have the chance to experience a marvellous view of the Bosphorus through the peaceful green of this public site.
