What to Expect
Begin your full-day tour with pickup at your European-side hotel or at a meeting point in central Istanbul. Your guide will give you a brief orientation before you board your air-conditioned coach and head to Sultanahmet Square. Stop inside the Blue Mosque, with its six minarets and colorful tile work. Learn about the history of the Ottoman-era mosque from your guide. Stroll across the square to Hagia Sophia, a museum that used to be a church and a mosque. Continue on to Topkapi Palace and discover its history as you wander through many ornate rooms. Then, take a break to enjoy a three-course traditional Turkish lunch. Next, you’ll pass through the Hippodrome and admire the Egyptian Obelisk, and then make your way to the ancient underground Basilica Cistern. Finally, shop for traditional goods and meet shopkeepers at the Grand Bazaar before you’re returned to your departure point.

Coach drops you off and the rest of the day is walking tour, including the walk back to your hotel/pick-up point. Great exercise, knowledgeable guide, jumped the queues and all in all well done.

Hi when you get the lunch break at the restaurant as part of the tour ask the waiter for the vegetarian option. There will be one on the menu.
