Comece a excursão com uma rápida visita ao Spice Bazaar do século XVII, uma das mais coloridas e agitadas atrações de Istambul. Em seguida, faça um inesquecível cruzeiro ao longo do Bósforo, o majestoso estreito que atravessa Istambul, ligando a Europa e a Ásia. Durante o cruzeiro de barco, você poderá ver dramáticas atrações ao longo das margens arborizadas do Bósforo: mesquitas, uma ponte que, por um tempo, foi a mais longa do mundo, a enorme Rumeli Hisari, uma fortaleza construída por Fatih, o Conquistador, em apenas três meses enquanto ele se preparava para tomar Istambul, as mansões do século XIX que pertenciam à elite otomana, os palácios irrealistas de pão de gengibre e as pousadas de caça do sultão.
Excellent!!! Our 2 days spent with Hakin was perfect!!! He answered all of our questions and was pleasant to be with. He was professional, knowledgeable and delightful. We saw everything that we wanted to see and felt very comfortable at all times. The van and driver was 5 star as well. I highly recommend Viator and will definitely use them again! our tour and guide went beyond our expectations!
Our tour guide was ilker ulus. He is very personable and is English was very easy to understand. His knowledge of the the sights and local culture is excellent. It provided us with an in depth knowledge of istanbul that we could not have gotten on our own. I would highly recommend ilker as your tour guide while traveling in istanbul.
This was an exceptional tour and our guide, Gülay was amazing. She knew every detail, every date, and the full history of every landmark on the cruise. She guided us where to sit on the boat for the best view of everything. The length of the cruise was just right. Honestly, I enjoyed the Egyptian spice bazaar just at much. Our guide knew the booths to take us to that were reputable and had quality products. It was a leisurely afternoon. We stopped for lunch at a small place recommended by Gülay. It was tasty, quick, and very reasonably priced. I'm a woman, so my favorite part was the shopping and Gülay was great with knowing the best spots for what I was looking for and talking to those shop owners who were no English-speaking.
This tour was actually great! We took other tours with the same group after the Viator booking and it wasn't as trustworthy or safe as the one we book through Viator. In the future, I would advise people to book through this channel only.
