About the tour

Crossing the wonderful Galata Bridge begins the story in which the city of Istanbul is divided. Precisely between the old and the new as it was known during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Explored by the Genoeses and the Levantines, it became a Mediterranean mixture of several cultures.

This part of the city becomes the modern and secular place that continues its tradition until these days. We will see the interesting mixed between jewishs and orthodox Christian churches without forgetting the elegance and the aristocratic atmosphere that was breathed at that time.

On this tour we will visit:

* Grand Old Station

* Galata Bridge

* Galata Tower

*Orthodox Christian churches

* Ottoman Kiosk

*Jewish heritage

* Vintage and bohemians cafes of the area

* Buildings of the republican era of Istanbul.

*Istiklal street

* Taksim Square and much more on this street walking tour.

El tour me ha encantado de principio a fin. Nuestra guía Nur ha sido muy detallista con las explicaciones durante todo el recorrido, y nos ha dado muchos tips importantes para el resto de nuestro viaje por Estambul.; la recomiendo 100%

Como comentario adicional, me pareció de muy mal gusto que muchas personas que habían reservado el tour con nosotros, no apareciesen y ni se tomasen la molestia de avisar, mas respeto.
