About
Explore Istanbul's UNESCO-listed Old City on this small-group, 8-hour walking tour. Admire the opulent Topkapi Sarayi, home of the Ottoman sultans, Hagia Sophia, once the largest church in all of Christendom, the 17th-century Blue Mosque, and the Roman-era Hippodrome, before soaking up the atmosphere of the vibrant Grand Bazaar. Please note that Tuesday tours exclude Topkapi Sarayi and substitute Yerebatan Sarayi (Basilica Cistern) and the Spice Market, while the Grand Bazaar is closed on Sundays.

Türkiye'de, özellikle İstanbul'da gezmek için bir rehberden ötesine ihtiyacınız varsa Erkan en iyi tercihtir. Derin tarih ve Bizans bilgisinin dışında bunu aktarmaktaki ustalığı, samimi ve esprili kişiliği ile tüm turu yorulmadan, eğlenerek tamamlamamızı sağladı. Yeme içme konusundaki bilgi ve tecrübesi en iyi yerleri bulmamızı ve yeni tadlarla buluşmamızı sağladı. Yeni turlar için can atıyorum.
