Private Istanbul Old City Walk is a walking tour that covers the main highlights of the city Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace and The Grand Bazaar. We will start our tour with a visit to the Topkapi Palace, which was the home and seat of the government of the Ottomans for nearly 400 years. It’s the heart of the great Ottoman Empire, ruled by the monarch who lived in Topkapi’s Harem section with a huge family and servants. Then we will visit Blue Mosque. The Blue Mosque is the second largest mosque in Istanbul and it was built during the regime of Sultan Ahmed. It is known for its 16th century blue Iznik tiles and 6 minarets. After here we will have a lunch break and continue to the Hagia Sophia, the church of the divine wisdom. Built as a church by the Byzantines and decorated with mosaic tile icons, it then served as a mosque during the Ottoman era.  Still today one of the most popular museum in the city. The tour ends with a visit to the Grand Bazaar that built the second half of 15th century and the largest covered bazaar in the world with its more than 4000 shops.
