Grand Bazaar was awesome. You can find almost everything. There is a great atmosphere. I felt like I went shopping like the people in the old times.

Gloria - July 02, 2019

It was the best place in Istanbul for shopping. The tour was not for shopping but we discover the Bazaar together. After the tour, we bought some souveniers for our parents.

Don t go there with your girlfriend if she is addicted to shopping! She might want to buy everthing! It is a dangerous place for your budget.
