Tour description

We begin our tour from the Karaköy area where we get into the Golden Horn Ferry. We have a Golden Horn River Tour to the Christian Quarter called Fener. From Fener to the historical city walls we walk through the Jewish Quarter of the Ottoman Empire period. Then we walk before the city walls from the Egrikapı Gate to the Edirnekapı Gate where our tour finishes. At the finish point, there are public transportation opportunities to be back to certain areas. We help the participants how to go back easily.
