I booked this whole day tour last week to have a guided one in Istanbul. Topeka museum is closed during Tuesdays and so we were brought to some old churches in the afternoon. The Chora Church, Bulgarian metal church of St Stephen, Chirch st George that belonged to the Orthodox and another church of the blessed Virgin Mary . The tour guides for both morning and afternoon trips are very learned.
