What to expect

Experience the magic of Istanbul in the morning with a visit of the Spice Bazaar, bus tour to the Golden Horn and a private cruise on the Bosphorus, the waterway that forms the continental border between Europe and Asia.

This morning tour will bring you by bus to the Golden Horn, the natural harbor of the city. Today, it separates the old Istanbul, where first colonies settled during the Byzantines, from the new part of town. Follow the traces of history to Balat and see the Bulgarian St. Stephan Church, the Jewish Hospital, the Fener Orthodox Patriarchate and the remains of the 22km long Byzantine city walls.

The tour also includes a visit of the famous Egyptian Spice Bazaar. Smell the different aromas of various spices and take in the colorful presentation of local fruits, vegetables, fish, flowers and more.

After having seen all these impressive sights, get on board of a private boat and go on a cruise along the beautiful Bosphorus. Take photos of this epic moment, standing in between the two continents of Europe and Asia and enjoy colorful views on Istanbul. From the boat you can also see the impressive Rumeli Hisrai Fortress. The Ottoman stronghold was built by the conqueror to control the shipping traffic of the Bosphorus.
