Istanbul Half Day Walking Tour

4hr, Private Preset tour

OVERVIEW: Your experienced private licensed guide will pick you up at your hotel/port to start the cruise ship passengers' favorite Istanbul half day walking tour.  Visit the amazing active Blue Mosque and the legendary 'massive' Hagia Sophia. Finally, learn about and see the treasures of the underground other-worldly Basilica Cistern. 

INCLUDED: licensed guide (many languages available-request when booking)

NOT INCLUDED: entrance fees and tips (appreciated when deserved)

HIGHLIGHTS: Your personal private group, licensed guide, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and the underground other-worldly Basilica Cistern.

DETAILS: Our Istanbul half day walking tour is great because you can see so many of Istanbul's highlights within a close proximity to your cruise ship port or hotel. You are met at your hotel/port and returned 4 hours later. Your licensed guide is a wealth of knowledge and you will learn of the exquisitely beautiful Blue Mosque. This is the primary active Mosque in Istanbul calling people to prayer six times a day. Across the park is the amazing Hagia Sophia, the largest building in the world for 1,000 years. Lastly, a visit to the underground other-worldly Basilica Cistern. 

FYI: Please be respectful of the request of 'no photos' of people in prayer during this tour, and women are asked to wear a light scarf around their head and shoulders upon entry to the mosque. P.S. The Blue Mosque will sometimes have small renovations happening.
