About the Tour

This tour includes a roof view of the bazaar as well. You will see the spot where many Hollywood action scenes were shot! 

One of the most well-known  masterpieces by Architect Sinan, Suleymaniye represents the peak of Ottoman art and engineering.  Suleymaniye tour definitely requires a guide because there is a detail and an amazing story hidden in every corner of the complex. It's one of my favorite destinations to take my groups. 

Grand Bazaar has been the heart of the commercial life of Istanbul for centuries. We are going to visit hidden caravanserais and inns that preserved their historical features. The maze-like streets of the bazaar is definitely a must-see for every visitor and with a local guide it won't be a simply visual experience but one with lots of interesting information and anecdotes... 


Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: I will be waiting under Column of Constantine (Çemberlitaş) and I will have my tour guide card around my neck.

Creo que Haktan hizo un tour increíble, muy profesional y muy entretenido mostrándonos rincones de Estambul que sólo un local conoce. Además, muy simpático y abierto a contestar preguntas.

Nuestro guía fue excelente, conoce el recorrido a la perfección y tiene un nivel de inglés increíble. No se pueden perder este tour si ya conocieron lo más turístico de Estambul. El guía te lleva por sitios a los que solo un local podría llegar. Recomiendo muchísimo, es una experiencia única.
