Free Tour from the Taksim Square to the Galata Bridge
We are licensed professional tour guides in English, Spanish, Arabic, and Polish languages. We love the unique historical richness of our city of Istanbul. In our tours, we mostly give you a lot of information about the history, culture, and contemporary states of the objects we visit. You can always write to us about any special things you need during your visit in Istanbul. It could be about any how-to questions.
My tour begins from the heart of the city called Taksim Square and ends in the Galata Bridge.
We start by walking from Taksim Square heading to İstiklâl Street towards Galata district. On the way, we see several historical churches, mosques and synagogues.
We enjoy the great view of the Galata Tower from outside. Then we see some historical buildings from Ottoman times and the Italian Genoese era and visit the Arab Mosque which was built centuries before Istanbul was conquered by the Turks. Finally, we finish the tour at one end of the Galata Bridge in Karaköy with a great view of the Suleymaniye Mosque ahead of us.
