Nice and quick 2.5 hours with hotel pick up. The you lads working on the tour were a good laugh and the ferry was comfortable. It gets very cold though, be sure to bring your jumpers and jackets!

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
