No trip to Istanbul is complete without experiencing highlights like the local markets, a cruise on the Bosphorus and tasting the local cuisine. With your Istanbul Super Saver tour you can experience it all in one day, with hotel pick-up and transportation included! Select from two different times of day to start your tour and join a professional guide to see the must-see attractions of Istanbul.
Head to the Egyptian Spice Market, a tantalizing market that harkens back to the 17th century, to begin the daytime portion of your tour (4-hours). Mingle with stall owners and snap photos of the colorful array of spices piled throughout the market. Learn bargaining tips from your guide, as well as anecdotes about its history.
After the market, venture to the Bosphorus Strait for a scenic cruise along the river. Enjoy views of Istanbul’s iconic landmarks including the 15th-century Rumeli Hisari Fortress, Dolmabahçe Palace and Beylerbeyi Palace, a former vacation getaway for sultans, as you float along the water.
At the end of the daytime portion of the tour, you will be dropped off at your central Istanbul hotel. Enjoy some free time before the evening portion of your Istanbul experience.
Start your evening tour (4-hours) with hotel pick-up and then travel to a traditional Turkish restaurant in the center of town. Settle in for a Turkish 4-course meal where you will taste mouth-watering traditional specialties served with mineral water and a half bottle of wine or beer.
As your courses come out, listen to traditional Anatolian folk music and watch a professional belly-dancing show. Sit back and enjoy the food, the atmosphere and this special live performance that shows what Turkish hospitality is all about.
After the meal and show, meet your professional driver at the given destination, then head back to your hotel.
