About Istanbul

Istanbul, Turkey

Istanbul (population: 14.03 million) may be known as the city of minarets, but it is not just about minarets. The city actually lies in two continents and is considered to be one of the greatest cities in the world. Its architecture is sure to delight your eyes while its cuisines and traditional ways of life offer blissful treats to your senses.

Compact Explorations

The best thing about Istanbul is that most of its best attractions are located in the Sultanahmet district, which means that you can literally walk from one wonder to the other. The famous Church of Holy Wisdom (also known as Aya Sofya or Hagia Sophia) gives way to the sprawling Topkapi Palace and the minarets of the equally majestic Blue Mosque are located mere steps away. That famous Grand Bazaar and its 4000-odd shops is also located here. Once you’ve had your share of ancient wonders, hop over to the entertainment districts of Galata and Karakoy to see modern living at its beautiful best. And for something even better, the Bosphorus waterfront is the place to be, or even take cruise on it on a rented yacht.

Istanbul may be a year-round destination, but the summer months are the best time to enjoy coffee in one of those pavement cafes or outdoor meals in riverside restaurants. The period between December to March is full of fog, and this makes the city feel even more mystical and enigmatic.

Getting Around Istanbul 

Istanbul’s yellow cabs are the best ways of getting around the city, but be careful they drive fast in Istanbul so make sure your seatbelt works and is properly tightened. There is an extensive bus network, but navigating that bus route is like solving a puzzle with some of the most important pieces missing.

Istanbul Tour Reviews

4.7 - Excellent Based on 77 customer reviews
HIGHLIGHTS OF TURKEY Reviewed Tour: Highlights of Turkey
4 - Very Good
“This tour was very well designed. Two weeks was a good amount of time to see hightlights, whilst not being too long and tiring. Group size is good. Turkey is a big country, and this tour did a good job at covering a lot in a little time.  The smaller bus was quite comfortable and very useful in getting around the smaller villages.”
Terrific Turkey with the amazing Fatih Develi and Unal Reviewed Tour: Highlights of Turkey
5 - Excellent
“We set our expectations quite high for this trip but these were exceeded in every way from start to finish after meeting our superb tour guide - Fatih Develi - in Istanbul. His organization and communication skills were outstanding as he guided us smoothly throughout the fantastic highlights of this great country, imparting his considerable knowledge of all aspects of Turkey from religions to history ancient and modern, wildlife, industries, politics etc. etc. Fatih was the highlight of our trip.”
The best of Turkey Reviewed Tour: Highlights of Turkey
4 - Very Good
“A diverse trip, packed with lots of places to see over 2 weeks, yet it didn't feel too rushed and we had more free time than I have had on other similar holidays.”
TURKEY - SULEYMAN - BRILLIANT Reviewed Tour: Highlights of Turkey
5 - Excellent
“Hi All, We had a great tour, small party because of the time we travelled (Christmas) but we experienced a lot, our driver was an expert in the conditions, It was a leisurely time, Saw an amazing amount of Turkey in a short time frame.”
Ancient Sites, Friendly People Reviewed Tour: Highlights of Turkey
5 - Excellent
“This was a tour of an amazing country. Turkey is an amalgam of people that have arrived over the centuries, leaving behind a wonderful heritage; there are so many ancient sites that the local population have lived alongside and only recently begun to appreciate. And yet it is amazingly self-sufficient in the modern climate of globalization.”
Wonderful holiday of discovery Reviewed Tour: Highlights of Turkey
5 - Excellent
“We are seasoned Exodus travellers with about ten previous trips under our belts so were prepared for another adventure of a lifetime and were not disappointed! Turkey is so diverse with amazing cities, mountains, coast and scenery and our guide made sure out time was fully utilised and every opportunity seized, from sunrises to sunsets. We travelled with friends and allowed ourselves a couple of extra days in Istanbul - a wonderful, buzzing city with plenty to see and do - before joining our group. Our time was packed with an excellent and informative tour of the city, with extensive information provided by Zafer not only on the buildings and sites, but on people's way of life and great dining experiences.”
An absolute gem of a tour Reviewed Tour: Highlights of Turkey
5 - Excellent
“Wow - what a holiday! I really felt that I saw and learned a huge amount about Turkey in just 2 weeks, and though it was busy with quite a bit of time in the bus some days, there was enough down time to relax. It helps that the tour guide was fantastic and the group were a great bunch too.”
Excellent Reviewed Tour: Best of Turkey
5 - Excellent
“very well thought out itinerary. Perhaps to include the Basilica cistern and Dolmanche Palace in the Istanbul tour as well? 1 day is not enough in Istanbul.”
Excellent Reviewed Tour: Best of Turkey
5 - Excellent
“I think it is a tragedy that Turkey is having security problems. Although 2 bombings occurred while we were there, our tour guide considered our safety and successfully kept us safe. At the same time he providing us with an experience that was well paced, covered the range of Turkish history, and the current economic, cultural and industrial story.”
