If you are flying through Istanbul and have a waiting time between 6-8 Hours this tour is the perfect choice for you!
Ataturk International Airport is the primary airport for the Turkish capital city of Istanbul and receives a huge amount of traffic every single year, with the vast majority being eager holidaymakers from other European countries. Thanks to its location on many of the world's longer flight paths though, many people also find themselves here on a layover, meaning that they need to find a few things to do in Istanbul to amuse themselves until their next flight. Luckily Istanbul is full of great attractions and places to go, and this program was designed to help these adventurers…
I will be waiting for you, holding a sign with your name on it when you emerge from the airport's secure Customs area. Then we will drive to the historical core of Istanbul.
Depending on our time and your interests we will visit as many of the places below:
Ancient Hippodrome, Hagia Sophia Museum, Basilica (Yerebatan) Cistern, Grand Covered Bazaar, Blue Mosque, Istanbul Archaeology Museum, Topkapi Palace and many more!
At the end of the tour we will drop you back to the airport 75 minutes before your flight. Normally, 60 minutes is enough for a layover connection flight.
