Explore the best of Istanbul in a single day. Visit Topkapı Palace, discover the Blue Mosque, wander through the Cistern Basilica, stop at Hagia Sophia, indulge in a traditional Turkish meal, and end at the Grand Bazaar.

Drive toward the UNESCO-listed Topkapı Palace and pay it a visit. The palace used to be the primary residence of Ottoman sultans for 400 years. Continue to the Sultan Ahmed Mosque, also known as the Blue Mosque thanks to its blue İznik ceramic tiles. Follow your guide to see its 6 famous minarets, the main dome, as well as the Byzantine Christian elements.

Carry on to Hagia Sophia, an impressive basilica from the 5th century, and see its interior with its stunning Shrine of Holy Wisdom of God and large Byzantine dome. Break for lunch at an authentic Turkish restaurant to indulge in a local dish before continuing to the Basilica Cistern.

Your guide tells you about the history of the Basilica Cistern, how it is the largest of several hundred ancient cisterns in Istanbul. Wander through this exquisite site and admire some of its 336 Ionic and Corinthian marble columns that hold the ceiling. See the famous Hen's Eye engraved in one of them, as well as the head of a Medusa.

Then drive through the city, passing by the Hippodrome and Obelisk before ending your tour at the Grand Bazaar, where you can bargain for goods or simply stroll through the various shops

הזמנתי מהאתר שלכם העברות משדה התעופה וגם סיורים באיסטנבול אני רוצה לומר שהרגשתי בטוח ונהנתי מכל רגע פשוט מושלם . ביום הראשון עשינו סיורים בתוך איסטנבול הגענו להרבה מקומות שלא הייתי מגיעה לבד . ביום השני הלכנו לשייט וארוחת ערב היה מהנה לראות עוד תרבות ומוסיקה , כמו כן לקחו אתנו מהמלון והחזירו אתנו למלון הרגשתי בטוחה . שירות אמין והיה נהדר . ממליצה מאווווד
