DETAILS: Our Istanbul half day walking tour is great because you can see so many of Istanbul's highlights within a close proximity and in a short time frame. You are met at your hotel 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 massive Underground Basilica Cistern, once the sophisticated water containment system, now used as a concert venue. 

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.
