Welcome to Istanbul! The bridge between east and west, and the only city in the world that stretches across two continents. A vibrant metropolitan with magnificent architecture, rich history, outstanding cuisine and generous people. As the former capital of the Ottoman empire, expect an intense experience as we visit top sites like the Blue Mosque, the Grand Bazaar and the Spice Market on a tour guaranteed to make you fall in love with the city. Because this is a private tour, you’ll have plenty of time to ask questions, stop for pictures, and go at your own pace. You will need between 7 to 8 hours of time to travel between the landmarks. Here is what we will visit on this tour- Taksim Square- Istiklal street- Galata Tower- Sultan Ahmet Mosque and Aya Sophia- Topkapi Palace- Eminonu + Egyptian Bazar- The Grand BazaarAnd much more.
Omar is civil engineer and Sally is an adult English teacher. We both speak fluent English. Passionate about the history of Istanbul and know exactly where to go and what to do when you have a layover here. We are originally from Cairo, but have been living and loving Istanbul for over 13 years. When we have friends or family visiting, we naturally become the tour guide (and we love it).
