This is a private tour designed only for you and your loved ones.
Our tour starts with us picking you up from your centrally located hotel and as our first move we pass the first intercontinental bridge connecting Europe and Asia. The Bosphorus Bridge was built in 1973 and the length between its two legs is 1074 meters. At the time of its construction, it was the fourth-longest suspension bridge of the world.
Then we will visit Camlıca Hill, the highest hill of Istanbul. Following a short drive from the suspension bridge, we reach the 268-meter-high hill, from where we can admire the mesmerizing views of the Bosphorus. After a photo stop, we will cruise along the suspension bridge before arriving at Dolmabahce Palace.
We will explore the Dolmabahce Palace, an architectural masterpiece in the heart of Istanbul. On Mondays, the Dolmabahce Palace is closed and will be replaced by the Chora Museum.
Led by a professional guide, we will hear stories behind this luxurious building. Built by the command Ottoman Sultan Abdulmecid between 1843 and 1856, the Palace is a mixture of Turkish and French influences. The exquisite and luxurious tastes of the era are evident everywhere you look. This palace includes 285 rooms, 6 baths, 68 toilets and a ceiling made from 14 tons of gold. Splendid bohemian chandeliers adorn nearly every room and the famous crystal staircase is another example of the era’s decadence.
Pickup is available from centrally-located Istanbul hotels within Taksim Square, Şişli, Beşiktaş, Sultanahmet, and Fatih neighborhoods.
