  • Admire the spectacular Iznik tiles lining the interior of the Blue Mosque
  • Marvel at the splendor of the exterior of vast Hagia Sophia

What to Expect
A licensed professional guide will meet you at your hotel, the cruise port, or the airport ready to begin your journey through Istanbul’s Ottoman history.

On this 4-hour private tour of one of the world’s great cities you’ll experience Turkish culture and visit centuries-old monuments. Visit Topkapi Palace, the official residence of the Ottoman sultans and the center of state administration for 4 centuries. The palace is home to the most holy relics of the Muslim world, and is now a museum featuring exhibits of the imperial collections.

Enter the Treasury section and see displays including the Spoonmaker’s Diamond, which is the 7th-largest diamond in the world.

Next on your itinerary is the Blue Mosque, representing the culmination of 2 centuries of Ottoman mosque and Byzantine church development. The historic structure incorporates some of the Byzantine elements of neighboring Hagia Sophia with traditional Islamic architecture, and is considered to be the last great mosque of the classical period.

You’ll have a chance to admire the majesty and massive size of Hagia Sophia from the exterior as you guide tells you about the history of this important monument.
