What to expect
Dive into the magnificent and intriguing world of the Ottomans with this private 5-hour walking tour. Your guide will pick you up at your hotel and together you’ll explore the iconic highlights of Ottoman architecture. Discover the imperial Topkapi Palace in the heart of Istanbul’s old city with its sprawling grounds, opulent halls, and intricately-tiled harem. Visit Suleymaniye Mosque, designed by the famous Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan and said to be the most splendid mosque in the city. You’ll peer into the Spice Bazaar, a covered market brimming with spice stands and flower teas. Nearby is the New Mosque, an imposing structure on the water with historic tombs. Walking along the water, arrive in the Tophane, where Ottoman-era ruins dot the neighborhood. Admire the exterior of a hamam (Turkish bath), a grand public fountain, and a medieval production facility. This tour leaves you with a deeper understanding of Ottoman culture and history. At the end of the tour, your guide will return you to your hotel.

YES! Love the attention and the time spent on what you want to see!!

One of the best places to see in Istanbul! I recommend to hire a personal guide and customize your excursion to include all the places you want to visit in one or two days.

Guide Huseyin Salikoglu is a university proffessor and very nice guy. That made the difference. Superbly educated and interesting walk all around best and less known sites. Felt I visited Istanbul thoroughly after this. Very recommended.

Istanbul highlights
Sep 2019 • Couples
What an incredible introduction to this extraordinary city! Jasmine was an excellent host with a huge amount of knowledge. Her insights were invaluable and provided us with a much greater understanding of all things Istanbul.

We spent two days ‘on tour’ and felt our experience of a complex city with an incredible history was greatly enhanced by Jasmine’s insights and intel.

Highly recommend this tour.

Brilliant day immersed in history
May 2019
We had a wonderful day with Yasemin, exploring beautiful places with the benefit of her extensive knowledge. She tailored our experience to meet the needs of an older traveller, and answered every question we could think of, whatever the subject. Really a fantastic experience and a great way into a complex history.

Excellent tour in Istanbul
We are very pleased with Istanbul Tour Studio, Ms Yasemin our tour guide is very knowledgeable about history of Istanbul and historical sites in it. We joined the tour with 5 kids (8 years old as the youngest and 15 years old as the oldest) and Ms Yasemine is very thoughtful in explaining the history of important places included  in Ottoman tour package and seem our kidos was enjoying the tour. The tour booking, arrangement of pickup and drop was excellent. Thanks Istanbul tour studio, you have made our trip more valuable.

Wonderful Tour lead by Ms. Betul
Wow! Betul’s knowledge and enthusiasm was wonderful. She made my daughter’s and my trip truly special. We spent time at the heart of the old city visiting Mosques, Cisterns, Palaces, and Bazaars. We enjoyed her guidance so much we booked her for more guidance 3 days later.

I Have One Day in Istanbul Tour which made the trip!
Nov 2017 • Couples
Had the most wonderful experience with Istanbul Studio Tour which set us up for a fantastic stay in the city. Myself and my partner took the I Have One Day in Istanbul Tour and thought it the highlight of our trip. Yasemin (our guide) was incredibly knowledgable and fascinating, tailoring our tour as we went a long mixing the big sites with out of the way eateries and snippets of local life. We learnt so much and took so much away from our experience - from what to eat to how to use public transport. I would thoroughly recommend the company (was very easy to book) and the tours as a gateway to your stay in Istanbul.

Four Days in Istanbul
Oct 2017 • Couples
We asked Istanbul Tour Studio to create an itinerary for our four days in Istanbul and it was perfect. Our guide as Betul and she was excellent. Very knowledgeable and accommodating. They arranged the following activities: A walking tour of Istanbul "highlights", a shopping day in and around the markets, a Turkish bath experience, a luxury boat cruise on the Bosphorus, transportation everywhere and fantastic dinner reservations. We had an incredible time and would not hesitate to recommend both Istanbul Tour Studio and Betul. Our Turkish carpets just arrived and we already want to go back!
