It was our first morning in Istanbul so the tour was good to get a feel for the city. The spice market was good to see - it’s not so much of a tour but time to walk around the market, which was fine for us. The boat tour (which is the main reason for people going) was a little disappointing.

Non of parfumes have the smell of Spice Bazaar. You see the Rustam Pasha Mosque from outside as a regular mosque. But when you enter you see the marvelous design by the architect Sinan. After this architectural beauty we went to see the natural beauty, Bosphorus.

I like to make investigations before my journeys. I saw a lot of old pictures of Bosphorus. I saw a lot of green places near the Bosphorus. But now there are a lot of buildings. And people can be some more kind inside of Spice Bazaar.

Near Spice Bazaar and Rustem Pasa Mosque, Bosphorus Cruise was like meditation. Strongly recommended.
