Go on a journey back in time and explore the Blue Mosque and Sultanahmet Square, which is a part of the UNESCO World Heritage. You will discover all the historical buildings surrounding the ancient imperial square of Istanbul, with your guide telling you all about the ages of Istanbul - from antiquity to modern times.

You will start your visit at the Million Stone: the center of the world, which goes back in time to the Byzantine Empire. Then you will get to the German Fountain, a gift from the German Emperor Wilhelm II to Sultan Abdulhamid II from 1898. After you will see the Palace of Ibrahim Pasha, an Ottoman imperial court residence built in the 16th century and visit the Hippodrome, which was the center of political and sporting life in Istanbul during the reign of the Roman and Ottoman Empire.

To end the tour you will admire the world-famous Blue Mosque, one of the most splendid and largest Ottoman mosques in Istanbul. Built in 1616, the sacral building with its six minarets characterizes the skyline of the city and is considered a masterpiece. The tour ends in the courtyard of the Blue Mosque, where you can enter the mosque with the famous blue Iznik tiles and see it from the inside.
