Overview

Begin the tour with a brief visit to the 17th century Spice Bazaar, one of Istanbul's most colorful and bustling attractions. Then take an unforgettable cruise along the Bosphorus, the majestic strait that runs through Istanbul, linking Europe and Asia. From your cruise boat, you can view the dramatic sights lining the Bosphorus' wooded shores: mosques, a bridge that for a time was the world's longest and the massive Rumeli Hisari, a fortress built by Fatih the Conqueror in just three months as he prepared to take Istanbul and the 19th century mansions of the Ottoman elite and the Sultan's fanciful gingerbread palaces and hunting lodges.

Excellent!!! Our 2 days spent with Hakin was perfect!!! He answered all of our questions and was pleasant to be with. He was professional, knowledgeable and delightful. We saw everything that we wanted to see and felt very comfortable at all times. The van and driver was 5 star as well. I highly recommend La Vacanza Travel and will definitely use them again! our tour and guide went beyond our expectations!

Our tour guide was ilker ulus. He is very personable and is English was very easy to understand. His knowledge of the the sights and local culture is excellent. It provided us with an in depth knowledge of istanbul that we could not have gotten on our own. I would highly recommend ilker as your tour guide while traveling in istanbul.

This was an exceptional tour and our guide, Gülay was amazing. She knew every detail, every date, and the full history of every landmark on the cruise. She guided us where to sit on the boat for the best view of everything. The length of the cruise was just right. Honestly, I enjoyed the Egyptian spice bazaar just at much. Our guide knew the booths to take us to that were reputable and had quality products. It was a leisurely afternoon. We stopped for lunch at a small place recommended by Gülay. It was tasty, quick, and very reasonably priced. I'm a woman, so my favorite part was the shopping and Gülay was great with knowing the best spots for what I was looking for and talking to those shop owners who were no English-speaking.
