The places we will introduce you to

First of all, you will see The Sultan Ahmed Mosque, a true masterpiece of Islamic architecture. Try to find out why it is called The Blue Mosque! Then, you will walk along the busy Sultanahmet Square (or The Hippodrome of Constantinople) and observe the ancient monuments. Next, you will take a look at The Hagia Sophia Grand Mosque which surprises everyone by the harmonious combination of Arabic minarets and Christian mosaics. Of course, none of Istanbul sightseeing tours would be complete without admiring the legendary Topkapi Palace: its walls still keep memories of magnificent ceremonies, palace intrigues, and amazing love stories. If you want to have some rest in the pleasant darkness of the underground reservoir, visit the ancient Basilica Cistern. After that, you will walk through the atmospheric Spice Bazaar offering the guests various kinds of goods: be sure to buy lovely souvenirs for your family and friends! At the end of the excursion, we will drive you to a hotel, a cafe, or any other place in the city: just choose the final point of the route in the booking form.

Reviews

Carl
The itinerary was great. Unfortunately, we didn't have enough time to visit the last tourist attraction as we had made long stops to take multiple pictures of the city.
Elsie
We had some doubts about ordering the guide as we had had negative experience. but everything went fine with Kiwitaxi! Our guide was a very nice woman. We had the opportunity to view all the sights without any fuss. It was enjoyable to move around the city in a cool car and listen to the pleasant voice of the guide.
