Tour description

Blue Mosque and Sokullu Mosque (inner visits)

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
  • Horse Hospital
  • Arasta Bazaar

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 are going to visit inside Blue Mosque and Sokullu Mosque. The other attractions will be explained from the outside. In some cases, we may not be able to visit the interior of some of the mentioned mosques.

For a better experience we keep the groups smaller. Please book only if you are sure that you will attend the tour.

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.

Tuvimos una estupenda experiencia con Sib, muy simpático y entretenido, quien nos contó muchas historias y curiosidades que no conocíamos. Repetiríamos encantados.

Dificil de encontrar al inicio. Poca información, superficial I poco interesante. Hicimos el tour para aprender historia, casi no aprendimos nada. Respuestas a preguntas escuetas I de dudosa veracidad

Un guía genial!!, con mucho conocimiento para compartir, recorrido pausado y tranquilo. Te lo cuenta todo como un cuento y es tan encantador que no te distraes ni un momento. Disfruta de su trabajo sin tenerlo aprendido de carretilla y eso se agradece más que nada! Súper recomendable!!!

Sib se portó muy bien ya que sólo estábamos nosotros y pensábamos que quizás nos suspendería el tour pero no fue así. Fue un recorrido muy interesante.
