Hagia Sophia, Underground Cistern,Hippodrome and Topkapi Palace
Hello, Welcome to Istanbul. .
Except for Blue Mosque I can avoid the lines, I have priority for museums but not a Blue mosque because it is not a museum and guides don't have priority for Blue Mosque.
Just like Rome, Istanbul's Old Town was built on seven hills. The district called Sultanahmet, on top of the first hill is the historic core of the city.
Today, Sultanahmet is Istanbul's single best sightseeing zone for visitors, playing host to Istanbul's most important and impressive former church( Hagia Sophia) and mosque ( the Blue Mosque) and great architecture building of Ottoman Palace
( Topkapi Palace)and its most significant Byzantine ruins ( the Hippodrome and Underground Cistern). In a day you will have a chance to see these amazing sites. It is a big advantage to have a private guide because you can ask any questions without any hesitation. After visiting these sites if we still have time that I can also take you Grand Bazaar. It is a huge bazaar with 4000 shops and more than 20 gates.

Safiye gave us a solid introduction to Istanbul! It was our first time visit, so we did the most typical attractions and they did not disappoint! Safiye answered all our questions and then some. For a first time visit, it was perfect.
