What to expect

Discover the highlights of Istanbul from an unusual perspective during this combo tour with a local guide! Stroll around Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace Garden and hunt for the most photogenic spots. This experience is part of Iconic Insiders, a selection of tours designed for first-time visitors to uncover what matters and get oriented in a new city. Your destination insider is a licensed guide who will offer recommendations and highlight the most visually attractive places of the itinerary.

Meet your local guide at the entrance of the legendary Hagia Sophia where you will be introduced to the stunning architecture of the building. Hear stories and facts about the 1,500-year-old history while you get an up-close look at the world-famous mosaics incorporated into the building’s design.

Afterward, you will move to the Blue Mosque, the 16th-century imperial Mosque of Sultan Ahmet. On the way to the next site, Topkapi Palace, your guide will tell you all that they can about the Roman and Byzantine Empire during the short walk. When you arrive at the glorious Topkapi Palace, you will visit the free-of-charge areas and learn about the history of the Ottoman Empire and what you can expect inside this museum.

The tour will end in the first courtyard inside Topkapi Palace. From here you will be given valuable advice on how to continue to explore Istanbul in the best way possible. The guide will explain to you how to explore using the free audio guide apps.
