What To Expect

The best way to get to know Istanbul or any city is to walk around it. You will begin this fun-filled walking tour in the Asian Section of Turkey's grand capital by first getting fetched from your hotel accommodation in Istanbul. Get dropped off at one of the stations of Marmaray in the European side of Istanbul. You will meet with a friendly, English-speaking guide who will regale you with his stories and commentary of the Üsküdar and Kadıköy districts and their popular attractions. You will visit the consecrated halls of the historic mosques and get to know how religion plays an important part in the lifestyle of many citizens. The walking tour also comes with a free meal at a beloved traditional restaurant; feasting on a Turkish dish is another intimate way to get to know the local culture. Continue on to Kadikoy, which is historically known as Chalcedon, literally meaning the ‘City of the Blind.’ Here you'll see old but beautiful buildings as well as a bumbling fish market and other complexes. To cap off this fantastic walking tour, you will go on a ferryboat ride on the Bosphorus Strait, which makes up the boundary between Europe and Asia; you will be riding in between two continents at once! After all that, you will be brought back to your hotel accommodation by the very same vehicle that took you to the start of your day's adventure.
