Morning Part of the Tour:

  • Pick up from your hotel around 07:45 - 08:20 and we will go to...
    • Golden Horn
    • Spice Bazaar
    • Cruise on Bosphorus
    • Rumeli Fortress
  • Firstly, we will visit Istanbul’s one of the oldest bazaars, Spice Bazaar. With the smell of the spices and the voice of the merchants that are thrust into your face as you take the first step through its massive door, you will slip away from today and find yourself in the Ottoman Empire of the 17th century.

  • After the Spice Bazaar, we will take a short Golden Horn tour and go to Kabatas for a Bosporus tour on our private boat. Not only does the Bosporus connect the Black Sea and the Mediterranean, it also separates the continents of Asia and Europe from one another.

  • While watching Asia on one side and Europe on the other during the tour, you will have the chance to visit an open air museum of incredible size. You will see the modern side of Istanbul with the Bosporus Bridge and the historical side with the Rumeli Fortress, mosques and old mansions. Note: the Bosporus has always been kind to photographers

Afternoon Part of the Tour:

  • After taking our lunch, we are going to...
    • Bosphorus Bridge
    • Camlica Hill
    • Palace of Beylerbeyi
  • The first highlight of the Asia tour is the Bosporus Bridge which was the 4th biggest suspension bridge at the time it was built. The first bridge to connect Asia and Europe, the Bosporus Bridge was opened in 1973. The first and only marathon to ever be held on two continents the Eurasia Marathon has been held here since 1978 with a great participation from the people.

  • Our first stop is, with unquestionably the best view in Istanbul, the Camlica hill. Camlica hill is the highest point in Istanbul. Therefore, offers the best view of Istanbul. While sipping your coffee here, you will have a hard time getting all the Marmara sea, Bosporus and island views to your photos/istanbul-bosphorus-tour.

  • In 1865, Sultan Abdulaziz had a 2500m² palace built to demonstrate the might of the Ottoman Empire to the important state guests. In the structure where all architectural masteries of the era are profoundly visible, particularly the works on the columns and the ceiling catch the eye.

  • Beylerbeyi Palace, which is located right under the Bosphorous bridge and by the sea in the Asian side of İstanbul in contrast to Topkapi Palace, Dolmabahce Palace and Ciragan Palace, was used by the Ottoman Sultans as a summer resort.
