You will explore Istanbul old city, this tour will enable you to see its main attractions


This tour is especially made for the cruise ship travelers.

Istanbul is visited by millions of tourists every year, part of them are having more time at their disposal, but most of the travelers are coming with limited time to be spent in Istanbul. This program will let the cruise ship passengers visit as much as they can. In this way, your limited time will be more valuable and full with so many things at the ends. We will spend a day in the old city by visiting Roman and Ottoman Heritages and witness their amazing architectural engineering.

You will back to your home with good memories and always remember your happiness in Istanbul.
