Visit the Eyüp Sultan Mosque and Tomb, the most sacred sites in the world after Mecca and Jerusalem, during this tour from Istanbul. Eyüp-El-Ensari was the flagbearer of Prophet Mohammed and died in Istanbul during the Arabic siege of the city in the 7th century. Dive in the mystical atmosphere around the mosque magnified by old trees, pigeons, praying believers and the visiting crowds.
After the visit to the mosque, you will ride a cable car to the Pierre Loti Coffee House, situated amongst the lush greenery of the Eyüp hill. The cable car provides a bird’s eye view of the Golden Horn - you will rise 550 meters in 115 seconds - and the panorama from the hill is simply astonishing. The coffee house takes its name from Pierre Loti, the French author and poet who was very fond of Istanbul and wrote many of his work whilst sitting at this café.
In the end, you will visit Miniatürk, “a story land” where you will see the scaled models of famous architecture. Admire the fairytale environment of İstanbul, Anatolia and the former Ottoman territories and reflect on the revival of Turkish culture and history in all its magnificence throughout the ages.
