Tour description

To learn about the some most powerful empires in history, we will go on a journey in which we will interpret history in small groups. We start our tour from Sultanahmet square and see other attractions which are within walking distances.

Some attractions we will see in tour;

  • Blue Mosque (inner visit)
  • Sokullu Mosque (inner visit) 
  • Sultanahmet Square (Hippodrome) 
  • German Fountain 
  • Serpent Column (the Spartans) 
  • Obelisk of Theodosius (3500 years old)
  • The Walled Obelisk
  • Ibrahim Pasha Palace (Museum of Arts)
  • Rectorate of Marmara University
  • Sphendon Walls

The tour will be conducted by a licensed professional guide. It is expected to contribute 10€ / $ per person (some pays 10€ some 50€) based on your satisfaction.

We will have inner visit of the Blue Mosque and Sokullu Mosque where you will have the chance to take the best photos. 

For a better experience we keep the groups smaller.

Adequate attire needed to enter the mosques. Women need to have headscarf too.  

We plan the tours according to mosque times. So, we need to change the time slightly sometimes. If there is a change, we will inform you a day before.

This tour has limited seats.  If you will not attend due to some changes in your plans, we kindly ask you to cancel on your bookings page or from email of confirmation to open space for other visitors.

For the best experience, please be in meeting point few minutes earlier and keep in contact (better on WhatsApp).

All I want is that travelers will leave Istanbul with the feeling of having been in an amazing city full of life and admire to come back again and again to discover more. Istanbul is a love.

You can contact me for private tour requests as well.
