Marvel at the majestic architecture of Topkapi Palace as you're guided through its stunning interiors. Hear about its construction, dating back to 1465 AD, and then continue to the Istanbul city center to visit the Süleymaniye Mosque. Meet your guide at the entrance of Hagia Sophia and hear about this magnificent building before you head out to explore Istanbul. Learn about the history and culture of the Turkish capital as you meander through its streets.

Then move towards the largest palace in Istanbul, UNESCO-listed Topkapi Palace. Skip the line and enter the former residence of Ottoman sultans. Follow your guide through different passages within the palace, which once held a mosque, hospital, bakery, and mint. Hear about the history behind these walls dating back to 1459 AD, when its construction first began. Peek through the windows to see beautiful views over the mighty Bosphorus. Continue to Süleymaniye Mosque, a 16th-century masterpiece of Sinan and the largest mosque in the city. Admire the Islamic architecture and the stunning interior dome flanked with semi-domes.
