Tour description

This tour of mine covers 3 Unesco World Heritage Sites. We start the tour with number 1 where we find Roman Hippodrome, Blue Mosque(Sultanahmet), Hagia Sophia and Topkapı Palace Garden.

As a second part we walkt towards the Suleymaniye Area through the Royal  and witnessing the view of Golden Horn and Bosphorus from the terrace of Suleymaniye Mosque. From the beginning of the Ottoman Era in Constantinople, this old quarter area has been a religious education center. On our way we pay visits some of these madrassas.

As a last stop we finish the tour by discovering the Zeyrek Roman Monastery.

We never forget to give some pit stops to taste the beatiful hidden tastes & gems of Istanbul, plus some IG Spots.

We really enjoyed the tour. Our guide told us many very interesting facts and gave us great insights into the Islamic world. He also then gave us great tips about what else to see and how to avoid tourist traps.

Fatih delivered an outstanding tour which included a keepsake of literature to take home and my name in Latin calligraphy being drawn in-front of me. There was a presentation on Islam and values inside the Istanbul Cross Culture Centre and the hospitality was great - nothing short of what I’ve come to expect from Turkish people. Tips and insider local knowledge was great.
