Add to Itinerary

Your tour begins with an introduction by your guide. You will depart for the European side of the Bosphorus to visit Lady Sadberk's family home, which is now a private museum full of amazing historical and archaeological items from Asia Minor. Here, you will see lifestyles recreated in life-size chambers depicting a traditional wedding chamber, a grandman's bedroom, and other typical settings of the past.

This is a perfect segway to your private boat, which will take you down the Bosphorus River. This waterway is the separation of Asia and Europe, and the mansions and palaces on either side deliver incredible coastlines. The skyline of Istanbul from the water is overwhelming as it is adorned with domes and minarets of numerous edifices.

Afterward, you will spend a little time with your guide in the Grand Bazaar and the Nuru Osmaniye District, where you will find plenty of perfect souvenirs and reminders of this portion of your trip.
