Description

Can't decide between exercising your legs on a tour of Istanbul, or putting your feet up on a comfy boat? Good news, on this special tour with a fun local guide, you get to do both! Take a bus tour and explore the city's highlights, sniff your way through the Spice Bazaar, and take a Bosphorus cruise, all in one day.

Your 3-hour bus ride around the Golden Horn will introduce you to the historic peninsula that separates the old Istanbul from the new. Learn how, why, and where the first colonies settled during the Byzantine era, and see where current residents live, work, and play.

Next up, tantalize your nostrils in the spicy setting of a bustling Egyptian Bazaar. The spice market is a whirlwind of delicious foods, smells, and sounds!

Afterwards, it's time to relax on a boat cruise through the waterway that separates Europe and Asia. Along the way, see marble palaces, the impressive Rumeli Fortress, and other examples of thriving Ottoman architecture. If you didn't know much about Istanbul before, you will after this!
