Embark on a Bosphorus Cruise and Two Continents Tour – Discover the striking landmarks of Istanbul, the historic home to Turkey’s Ottoman and Byzantine Empires. Experience the mesmerizing Beylerbeyi Palace, the stunning vistas of Camlica, and the renowned Spice Bazaar, all under the guidance of a seasoned expert.

You will be picked up in the morning from your hotel or cruise port between 8:15 – 8:45 am for the Full Day Istanbul Bosphorus and Two Continents Tour

On the tour you will be able to see the following sites:

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

The Bosphorus Bridge: Built-in 1974 and rising over 197 feet (60 m) above sea level, this bridge connects the European and the Asian sections of Istanbul.

Camlica Hill: This panoramic overlook, the highest point in Istanbul, offers views of the city.

Beylerbeyi Palace: This lavishly furnished, 19th-century palace served as a summer residence for the Ottoman sultans. Lunch will be provided in a traditional Turkish restaurant.

Bosphorus Cruise: Described as “God’s beautiful calligraphy written by an ink made of sapphires,” the Bosphorus straight separates and connects the two continents that form the 2 faces of the city.

Rumeli Fortress: From the sea (no interior visit) Built by Mehmet the Conqueror in 1452 prior to the Conquest of Istanbul, was completed in only four months to control and protect the Bosphorus. It is one of the most beautiful works of military architecture anywhere in the world.
