Detailed Itinerary

Our driver will meet you at your hotel and drive you to the tour’s starting point between 10:45 - 11:15 according to your hotel’s location. 

Ortakoy
Ortakoy (literally Middle Village in Turkish) is a neighbourhood, formerly a small fisherman village, within the Besiktas district of Istanbul, Turkey, located in the middle of the European bank of the Bosphorus. Ortakoy was a cosmopolitan area during the Ottoman era and the first decades of the Turkish Republic, with communities of Turks, Greeks, Armenians and Jews. Today the neighbourhood still hosts many different religious (Muslim, Jewish, Orthodox, and other Christian) structures. It is also a popular spot for locals and tourists alike, with its art galleries, night clubs, cafés, bars, and restaurants. Provides excellent views to the city, located right under the first bridge of Bosphorus!

Bosphorus Bridge
Get the unique chance to drive from Europe to Asia with a breath-taking view of the Bosphorus. This was the first bridge to connect both continents and it was open on the 30th of October, 1973. It took 3 years to be finished.

Camlica Hill
The highest point of Istanbul has an absolutely magnificent view to offer, which makes it well worth the drive. It gives you a unique chance to view entire city in a single picture. A lovely cafe stands on the top and you can enjoy a cup of tea and a delicious Simit, while looking at Istanbul.

Dolmabahce Palace
(Closed on Mondays - Thursday & replaced with Galata Tower)

This is one of the most impressive palaces that you will ever visit. The main palace was built by the leading Ottoman architects of the era, Karabet and Nikogos Balyan, and consists of three parts: the Imperial Mabeyn (State Apartments), Muayede Salon (Ceremonial Hall) and the Imperial Harem.
