ماذا ستفعل

The Hippodrome of Constantinople; Learn about the early Roman history of the city. Hear the stories behind the Egyptian Obelisk and the Serpentine Column. (public square)

The Blue Mosque; built for Sultan Ahmet, enjoy the serene interior. This magnificent six column structure represents the pinnacle of Ottoman religious architecture. (interior visit)

Topkapi Palace and the Harem; The palace where the Ottoman Empire was ruled from for about 375 years. A series of courtyards and halls contain fabulous displays of precious jewels and important religious artifacts. The public rooms of the palace are a worthy backdrop to the splendor and intrigue of the Harem. (interior visit)

We visit the Hagia Sophia, originally built in 537 CE, later served as a Greek Orthodox Church. When Sultan Mehmet II conquered the city in 1453 CE, it became a mosque. In 1935 it was converted to a museum. The interior, with its enormous dome, delights with glorious mosaics, galleries and suspended Islamic pendants. (interior visit)

Basilica (Underground) Cistern; built during the reign of Justinian I, in the 6th century, it is the largest surviving Byzantine cistern in Istanbul. The cistern's symmetry ans sheer grandeur of conception are breathtaking, making it a favorite location for big-budget films.

The Grand Bazaar; at the end we take an orientation tour of this labyrinth of streets and stores.
Other things to note
Our meeting point is the German Fountain in Sultanahmet area. It is a very distinctive landmark with a green dome just at the beginning of the Hippodrome square (a.k.a. Sultanahmet Square). If you arrive by tram, get off at Sultanahmet stop and walk down the tram line about 50m, it'll be on yr right

This walking tour was amazing, I can highly recommend it. Cihan is very knowledgable and gave a lot of background info and historical facts, we learned a lit about Istanbul. He has a great way of relating the buildings and sights to the history of this city. Cihan was very engaging, answered all our questions and made sure everyone could follow him and was comfortable at all times. Great experience!

Great option if you only have a couple days in Istanbul like I do. Cihan is a wonderful guide with lots of knowledge. It would be better if we’re given an hour lunch break so we can go to a restaurant of our choosing. The restaurant we’re taken to is a bit overpriced but that’s probably the same with all tours. Overall recommended.

We loved Cihan as our guide in Istanbul! He’s an extremely knowledgeable tour guide with years of experience! He knows the city and culture of Turkey very well! This is the perfect tour to do in your first day in Istanbul. The explanation he gives of the history of the sites you visit is excellent. We loved the lunch spot he took us to we went back again! He also provides several great recommendations for food and things to do in the area after your tour. Definitely don’t miss booking this tour!

Cihan took us for tea and spent an early 30 minutes orienting us to the creation and history and position of Turkey in the Mediterranean region. It was a unique and wonderful educational experience to allow us to reflect on what a crossroads of civilization Istanbul is. Cihan is a 10 out of 5 and a pleasure to spend a day with enjoying and learning about Istanbul.

Cihan delivers an amazing amount of information is an engaging way in just a single day. He is also able to contextualize everything so well so you can piece together the long and winding history of Istanbul across the centuries. Our tour was well placed, with breaks in the right spots to both rest our legs and really download on some information, but also kept us moving to see everything. We started off with some traditional tea at the hippodrome, had a fantastic lunch. Cigan even points out the best angles from which to take your photographs! Bottom line: if you want the best guide for a day in Istanbul's old city, Cihan is amazing!
