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.

Customer Reviews for Istanbul

4.7 - Excellent Based on 34 reviews
Excellent Reviewed Tour: Tasty Delights of Istanbul at Night
Mr. Philip S. At
5 - Excellent
“This tour (8th May 2016) was excellent in every respect. Our guide (Cücü) was friendly, relaxed and welcoming. We experienced a tremendous variety of food and drink, all in an area of Istanbul we were not familiar with, and all the while learning about that area, the people who live there, the types of shops and food places, the buildings, the history and so on. A truly enjoyable and fascinating tour - and we couldn't eat any more by the end of the evening! We have already recommended this tour to others.”

“I had tried to pick a tour that covered a different itinerary as I had previously been to Istanbul before and was already staying in Sultanahmet. The guide was great and knowledgeable but the tour was just okay for me as we spent close to 2 hours at the Blue Mosque and Hippodrome (both places I had previously been to and walked by daily) while our guide patiently answered beginner questions on Islam. My experience was also soured by being required to wear a skirt covering over top of my long pants despite being dressed modestly. None of this was the fault of the guide but this had lowered my experience.”

“Beatrice was brilliant, as was the company's willingness to arrange our tour at very short notice. There could have been more transparency about the exchange rate to be used (this wasn't Beatrice's fault) - we had calculated a different amount of lira needed and this made for an awkward end to the tour.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed the tour! We had a nice small group of 5 people, which was a good size. I enjoyed walking around the Taksim area side streets, and visiting places I would've otherwise missed. Our guide was good and our tour even went longer then it was meant to, as no-one was in a rush to finish. However, I don't think it was value for money. It is extremely expensive considering what was included.......although it was the first time I've done a tour like this, so I have nothing to compare it to.”

“Our urban adventures trip through the back streets and alleyways of Istanbul showed us more of what this magical city had to offer than our day long large group bus tour. Our fantastic guide asked if we were on a tight schedule and as we were not, the 3 hours turned into a leisurely 4 hours. We got to sample a variety of local traditional foods and drinks while taking in the history of the area. It was a privilege to be taken by a young local person to visit areas less frequented by foreign tourists.”

“Our guide, Salih, was very sociable, knowledgeable and we enjoyed the spontaneity and the range of tastes. The walk in that part of Istanbul was also very interesting. Highly recommended.”
