Day 2 Full Day Istanbul City Tour (B, L)

After having breakfast at the hotel, we will explore the wonderful sites of Old Istanbul, the only city in the world straddling two continents, Europe and Asia. We will visit the Blue Mosque, with its six graceful minarets and famed blue Iznik Tiles, the Hippodrome, ancient Roman arena for chariot racing and Grand Bazaar with its more than 4,000 shops. We will then visit The Topkapi Palace, which from the 15th to the 19th Century was the principle residence of the Ottoman Sultans. We will visit the fabulous Imperial Treasury and the Baghdad Kiosk. Topkapi Palace is now a museum and has unrivaled collections of jewelry, including the Spoonmakers Diamond, the 3rd largest diamond in the world, Ottoman court costumes and ceramics, notably one of the worldu0027s finest collection of early Chinese ceramics, much of it gifts from other rulers. Interestingly, some of the ceramics have a special glaze that was said to change color in the presence of poison. We also visit the Imperial Armory, displaying centuries of Ottoman weaponry. But perhaps the loveliest features of Topkapi Palace are its courtyards with their ancient trees, and it is easy to imagine the sultan strolling here far from the cares of state and empire. We will then proceed to The Suleymaniye Mosque, which is the largest and grandest of Istanbulu0027s imperial mosques. It dates from the 16th Century heyday of the Ottoman Empire, and was designed by Sinan, the greatest architect of his day and originator of the Classical Ottoman style of architecture. Of the 2,000 structures Sinan designed, Suleymaniye Mosque and its complex of charitable institutions rank among the most important. Finally, we will then visit the museum Haghia Sophia* and the Church of The Divine Wisdom.

    What a wonderful experience we had. The place is so rich in culture, heritage, history and architechure. This is a must see if you are planning a visit to Turkey. The tour was organized by Tayf Tours faultlessly. All arrangements were smooth and comfortable. The guide was great. The tour included lunch, and it was one of the best lunch we had in Turkey – gave us the experience of local, traditional food. Koral Akcay was our Reservations Manager at Tayf Tours and he took care of everything very well. This tour company is highly recommended. Koral made sure all our needs are met.

    I spent a lot of time trying to decide how to use my 5 day stay in Istanbul. I checked out at least five travel agencys for trips to Cappadocia and Ephesus. Some agencies were charging twice the price for these tours and I could not compare the differences. Koral at TAYF Tours gave me several suggestions as to how to spend my 5 days and explained to me very clearly what his 2-Day Cappadocia Tour included. It was not the least expensive, nor the most expensive compared to other agencies and I could choose between two hotels. I chose the 5 Star cave hotel option which was a wonderful experience in itself! There were seven of us on our two day tour in a comfortable minivan with a driver and a guide, both were excellent. Our hot air balloon ride was cancelled because it was too windy. This was a disappointment, but that lets us know that safety is first! We received a full refund for the cancelled balloon ride.
    In summary, Koral at TAYF Tours was wonderful and gave a very clear answer to every question I had. The trip was so easy and flawless! I will use TAYF Tours, esp. Koral, for any trip to Turkey, Egypt, or Greece.

    Tayf Tours arranged a 5 day side trip for us from Istanbul and back. Everything went perfectly: the hotels were fantastic, guides and drivers were knowledgeable and professional and caring (special shout out to guide Nafia and driver Moustafa). I especially enjoyed woking with Ercin Gokce who co ordinated our trip and was always available to answer our questions, both from the US by emil and when we were actually in Turkey! We recommend this organization highly!
