What to expect

The Topkapi Palace is the largest palace of Istanbul and the Süleymaniye Mosque is the largest mosque in town. On this tour you visit both. Skip the line at the Topkapi Palace, enjoy a guided tour through the UNESCO-listed monument and visit the Süleymaniye Mosque afterwards. Meet your guide at the entrance of Hagia Sophia and hear about this magnificent building before you head out to explore Istanbul. Learn more about the history and culture of the Turkish capital as you wander through its streets.

At UNESCO-listed Topkapi Palace, skip the line and enter the former residence of Ottoman sultans. Follow your guide through different courtyards and passages within the palace, which once held a mosque, hospital, bakery, and mint. Hear about the history behind these walls dating back to 1459 AD, when its construction first began. Peek through the windows to see beautiful views over the mighty Bosphorus.

Continue your tour to Süleymaniye Mosque, a 16th-century masterpiece of Sinan and the largest mosque in the city. Admire the Islamic architecture and the stunning interior dome flanked with semi-domes. The guided tour ends at the Sultanahmet center, where you can continue to explore at your own leisure.
