Istanbul on Two Continents Tour
Conquering all the sites of Istanbul can feel like a big task when the city is nestled across two continents and seven hills, but this tour will make the city feel smaller when your local guide shows you Istanbul in Two Continents. If you love food, photography and getting amongst the local culture then come and live the local lifestyle of two continents for an afternoon and evening.
Cruise the Bosphorus on a public ferry to 'Asia', view the historic Kiz Kulesi (Maiden’s Tower) and the magnificent Istanbul Peninsula from the blue waters of the Bosphorus, visit local markets and shopping havens on the 'asian side' of Istanbul, relax in local cafés with a glass of cay, experience genuine Turkish and Kurdish cuisine and hospitality, learn the local games of Okey or Backgammon and in the evening why not try the fruity flavours of the local nargile (waterpipe). Istanbul in Two Continents is the best way to get up close to Istanbul life in Asia and Europe.
