What to expect

Meet your tour guide in your hotel or port and start the tour with the highlights of Istanbul:

Suleymaniye Mosque is the largest mosque in Istanbul and is as impressive on the inside as it is on the outside. In the garden behind the mosque you will visit a terrace which offers a lovely view of the Golden Horn and the Bosphorus.

Chora Church is considered to be one of the most beautiful examples of Byzantine churches, because of its glorious mosaics and frescoes about scenes of the Holy Bible.

Fener District: you will then continue exploring Istanbul’s rich religious history with a stop at the Church of St. George. Since the 1600s, this church has been the location of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople and is recognized as the seat of the spiritual leader of the Eastern Orthodox Religion.

The following stop is Balat District, where lines of drying laundry stretch across steep, winding streets. One century-old Ottoman houses lean against each other in a combination of reds, blues and greens. And art galleries and design shops dot the area along the water.

St. Stephen Church, located on the shore of the Golden Horn, the church is also known as the Iron Church due to the fact that it’s made entirely of prefabricated cast iron in the 19th century.

Pierre Loti Hill and the Cable Car are one of the most popular sights to visit since they offer great views for the visitors. Take the cable car to reach to the top and enjoy the beautiful scenery while sipping your Turkish coffee or tea.
