This is a private tour designed only for you and your loved ones. Our journey starts with us picking you up from your centrally located hotel between 8 and 8:30 am with our comfortable, air-confditioned vehicle. Our tour guide welcomes us and gives us a brief summary of our day ahead.
First, we will visit Dolmabahce Palace, the last resting house of the founding leader of Turkish Republic Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. Known for its great collection of European antiquity, furniture, and 4.5-ton chandelier, the palace has 285 rooms and 46 halls. After the Dolmabahce Palace, we are heading to take a tour of Bezmi Alem Mosque, one of the important architectural landmarks of Istanbul.
After a short lunch break at a local restaurant, we will drive by Golden Horn shores to see the Byzantine legacy of the city, the old city walls, which date back to the Byzantine era. Then, we will take a short cable car ride up Pierre Loti Hill, where we will enjoy magnificent views of the city.
Last but not least; we are taking a 2-hour cruise to see the impressive sights along the Bosphorus' shores, including the Dolmabahce Palace, Ciragan Palace, Maiden´s Tower, Bosphorus bridges, Rumeli and Anadolu fortresses, and Ottoman residences.
Our guide will drop you off at our hotel around 17:00 pm for us to get some rest after a busy yet fulfilling trip.
