Full Description

Every visitor to Istanbul must visit Istiklal Street at least once! It's one of the most popular streets in the city for locals and tourists and is often so crowded that you get carried along in the mass of people! So take a break from the busyness around you and join us for a casual walk around this famous area. Istiklal Street is a pedestrian mall but there is an old tram that runs down the middle so watch out for that! 

Istiklal street is the place to go for all your shopping needs. You'll find everything from small boutique stores to big international brands. There are also many restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs. At night, Istiklal Street is one of the busiest spots in the city. 

Meet your guide at Taksim Square and take a tour of all the main attractions. Don't forget to ask for tips on where to go for dinner! Istiklal is also home to many international embassies, luxury hotels, apartment buildings, churches, museums and theatres so it will be an interesting walk with lots to see!

Really a great tour to take

I was in Istanbul years ago. This street and Taqsim have been chaged so much. There was a culture center on square but not now. On the beginning a mosque structure. And there were some trees beyond the street on my previously visit. World is changing.

I saw the street as an old woman with a lot of make up. Historical buildings are hiding behind of the lights. I suggest you to taste local street foods next to Flower passage.

My first time in Istanbul and wanted to visit this highly recommended place. Happened a nice choice.
