This is a private tour designed only for you and your loved ones.
Bursa had been the capital of the Ottoman Empire in early phases, one of the biggest empires in the history of the world. We will enjoy a full-day excursion from Istanbul to explore this city situated on the north-western slopes of Mount Uludag, including 45 minutes in Bursa City for our personal needs.
For this tour, we are picking you up from your centrally located hotel with our comfortable,air-conditioned vehicle and altogether we are hitting to road to Green Bursa.
The Green Bursa name comes from the fact that the city is full of green lovely gardens and parks. Being the 4th largest city of Turkey, Bursa is also known for its peaches, chestnuts, and its silk industry. We are enjoying a cable car ride to the Mount Uludag and get to admire the amazing nature of the city from above. We are trying the delicious Iskender kebab for the lunch.
Next, we will visit the Grand and Green mosques, the Green Mausoleum, and the old silk market in the covered bazaar. The mausoleums of early Ottoman sultans are located in Bursa and the numerous edifices built throughout the Ottoman period constitute the city's main landmarks. The surrounding fertile plain, its thermal baths, several interesting museums, and orderly urban growth add to Bursa’s appeal.
After a day of fun and peace, we are hopping on to our coach one last time and heading back to Istanbul, to our hotels for a good night rest.
