What to expect

Meet your tour guide at your hotel or at the cruise port and start the tour with the highlights of Istanbul:

Suleymaniye Mosque is the largest mosque in Istanbul and is as impressive on the inside as it is on the outside. In the garden behind the mosque, you will visit a terrace that offers a lovely view of the Golden Horn and the Bosphorus.

Iron Church is considered to be one of the most beautiful examples of Bulgarian churches, because of its glorious iron structure and frescoes about scenes of the Holy Bible.

You will then continue exploring Istanbul’s rich religious history with a stop at the Church of St. George. Since the 1600s, this church has been the location of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople and is recognized as the seat of the spiritual leader of the Eastern Orthodox Religion.

The following stop is the Balat and Fener Districts, where lines of drying laundry stretch across steep, winding streets. One century-old Ottoman houses lean against each other in a combination of reds, blues, and greens. And art galleries and design shops dot the area along the water.

St. Stephen Church, located on the shore of the Golden Horn, the church is also known as the Iron Church due to the fact that it’s made entirely of prefabricated cast iron in the 19th century.

Pierre Loti Hill and the Cable Car are some of the most popular sights to visit since they offer great views for visitors. Take the cable car to reach the top and enjoy the beautiful scenery while sipping your Turkish coffee or tea.

After your tour, you will be transferred back to your hotel.
