Tour description

Blue Mosque and Sultanahmet Square

This is a thematic brief tour focusing on Sultanahmet which is known worldwide as Blue Mosque. We will go on a journey in which we will interpret history in small groups. We start our tour from Sultanahmet square explain the monuments in the square and visit The Blue Mosque (inside). Less walking, no slopes, more detailed explanation.

Some attractions we will see in tour.

  • Blue 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

The tour will be conducted by a licensed professional guide. 

The participants will be free to pay (per person) a fair amount between 10€ and 50€ based on satisfaction. The minimum contribution is 10€ or 400 liras per one. 

We are going to visit inside Blue Mosque. The other attractions will be explained from the outside. 

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 and cruise requests in Arabic, Persian, Kurdish, Turkish, English and Spanish.

Witzig gestaltete Tour durch die Blaue Moschee mit interessanten Inhalten. Zusätzlich noch Besuch einer weiteren abgelegeneren Moschee - auch hier tolles Storytelling. Danach viele Geheimtipps und wertvolle Informationen per WhatsApp für die weitere Zeit in Istanbul erhalten. Auf jeden Fall empfehlen wir Sib weiter.
