Overview

Enjoy Full day Istanbul Bosphorus Cruise and Beylerbeyi Palace tour with lunch.

It’s unique opportunity to visit two continents in one day as you explore both the European and Asian sides of Istanbul on this full-day tour, including lunch.

Tour the lavish Beylerbeyi Palace, stroll around the vibrant Spice Bazaar, and enjoy a scenic 1.5-hour cruise along the Bosphorus, passing landmarks like the magnificent Dolmabahce Palace.

City Walls
The first breach of the walls was by the Fourth Crusade in 1204, the second by the cannons and troops of Sultan Mehmet the Conqueror in 1453.

Drive by Bus to Golden Horn
As a natural and extremely secure harbor, the Golden Horn has played an important role in the development of Istanbul. The inlet separates the European shore into two. It is approximately 8 km long, and the widest part is the entrance from the Bosphorus. Two streams drain into this inlet at its far end.

Spice Bazaar (Egyptian Bazaar)
The air here ıs filled with the enticing aromas of cinnamon, caraway, saffron, mint, thyme and every other conceivable herb and spice.

Boat Trip on the Bosphorus
An amazing cruise between the two continents, EUROPE and ASIA, along the Bosphorus by the Dolmabahçe and Beylerbeyi Palaces, wooden villas and mansions up to the Rumeli Fortress.

The Rumeli Fortress (from the sea – no interior visit)
İstanbul had been besieged many times before Mehmet the Conqueror took the city in 1453,but it managed to defend itself with the help of the Roman city walls.

Lunch (Drinks are extra)
Shopping As Turkey is one of the best leather producing countries in the world. We will watch a fashion-show in an outlet center which produces and manufactures different varieus of great quality leatherware. So it’s a good opportunity to have a look at the reasonable priced good quality leather accessories. (Optional due to high traffic jam and long line for the Palace)

Bosphorus Bridge
Unique chance to step from one continent (ASIA) to another (EUROPE)

Beylerbeyi Palace
The summer residence of Ottoman Sultans with its original furniture and magnificent gardens with the Harem on the Asian Side.

Çamlıca Hill one of the highest point in Istanbul. At the top of it you can rest and admire the magnificent panorama of Istanbul and the Bosphorus from the beautiful gardens, landscape in traditional style, as you sip your drinks in a cafeteria.
