Description

Discover the wonders of the Asian and European sides of Istanbul by land and sea on this full-day tour. In the morning, sail under the Bosphorus Bridge passing Ortaköy Mosque and Dolmabahçe Palace. After lunch (meal included), hop in a car to further explore both sides of the city. Discover quaint neighborhoods and learn the history of this fascinating city. Finally, cross the intercontinental Bosphorus Bridge to the Asian side where you'll see some off-the-beaten-path parts of town and even get a perfect panoramic view of the city.

Get picked up at your hotel and set sail through the legendary Bosphorus Strait. Learn about the history of this ancient city from the knowledgeable local guide as you get incredible views of Istanbul along the way. Sail right between the city's European and Asian sides and learn the difference between the two. As you cruise underneath the famed Bosphorus Bridge, take note of the historic Ortaköy Mosque, Dolmabahçe Palace and Rumeli Fortress, the latter built by Sultan Mehmed II in 1452.

After two hours on the boat, hop off and into a comfortable vehicle to go deeper into Istanbul. Start off with a delicious three-course lunch at a local seafood restaurant and then drive across the Bosphorus Bridge to the Asian side of town. Marvel at the Ottoman-era mansions on the waterfront. Then explore the ornate Beylerbeyi Palace, once a summer residence of Ottoman sultans, and other landmarks as you work your way to Çamlıca Hill, a highpoint commanding spectacular views over the city.

Absorb the panoramas over drinks (own expense) at the cafe, and then finish your tour with a hotel drop-off.
