Full Description

Enjoy the must-see attractions of Istanbul with this combo! Skip the ticket line with your expert guide and jump straight into the good stuff at the number one must-see, the Hagia Sophia Museum. The Hagia Sophia has over 1,500 years of Christian and Islamic history to share with you and the most stunning architecture to behold. 

The next incredible attraction is the Basilica Cistern. Descend into the darkness and be amazed by the size of the huge cavern. It's hard to believe such a beautiful space was just used to store water for the Great Palace and then the city! It can store a staggering 80,000 cubic metres of water. There are also surprising treasures to be found there, for example, an unusual Medusa pillar base...but we'll let your tour guide tell you the story!

Next up is Topkapi Palace. Today a museum, Topkapi Palace was the residence of the Ottoman Sultans and administrative headquarters of the Ottoman Empire for over 400 years. You'll see how the Sultan and his family lived, plus there's a Religious Relics chamber that contains ancient relics of Moses and the Prophet Muhammad. 

On one of your evenings in Istanbul, go and enjoy the Whirling Dervishes Ceremony at the Hocapaşa Cultural Centre. Watch the mystical ceremony of the Mevlevi Order, which has been classified as an important cultural practice by the UNESCO. The Sema ceremony is a spiritual journey of man seeking a close relationship with God. It's an unmissable experience!

Last, but definitely not least, is the Bosphorus Dinner Cruise. This is a spectacular way to end a day of sightseeing. Cruise the Bosphorus under the night sky and see the beautiful lights of Istanbul, the Bosphorus Bridge and the Maiden's Tower. Enjoy an authentic Turkish dinner followed by traditional Turkish performances including a belly dancer and dancers from different regions of the country. It's a night you'll remember for years to come!
