Tour overview

A very satisfying day with a customizable tour itinerary, however please note that current itinerary requires a difficult level of walking, so it’s not recommended for guests with pack problems and pregnancy.

A long journey starting in heart of city and creating a circle until Taksim area by passing from the lively, crowded and hectic streets will mesmerize you with the rhythm of life here in Istanbul.

You can either follow the route we suggest here or skip sites that you are not interested in by talking with your tour guide. However, after a tiring day you will be tired enough to sleep and exited to see the city tomorrow with a new perspective you got from yesterday.
