El tour está muy bien organizado. La información es la adecuada y el tiempo destinado a cada actividad es óptimo. El restaurante muy bueno y el paseo por el Bosforo una maravilla, tanto el paseo como las delicatessen servidas a bordo.

Money is secure and payment gateway is reliable.

The first stop on your itinerary is the Blue Mosque. This prominent landmark boasts stunning semidomes, courtyards, and minarets. Soak it all in before heading to Hagia Sophia, a once Christian church that holds significant historical relevance. Visit the Topkapi Palace and the little Hagia Sophia Mosque afterward, both must-see attractions in Istanbul. End your walking tour at 4pm at the Grand Bazaar, the oldest and largest covered marketplace in all the earth!

After exploring the city on foot, get transferred to a yacht that has quite the evening in store for you. Unwind after a tiresome day of sightseeing as you gaze out and watch the sun set over the beautiful Bosphorus Strait! The glass-encased yacht will highlight sights like Dolmabahçe, Çırağan and Beylerbeyi palaces, Çamlıca, and Ortaköy mosques, the Maiden’s Tower, and Bosphorus bridges. Soak it all in while snacking on baklava and fresh season fruits on the luxury yacht! Your boat cruise will end at 7pm.
