BOSPHORUS CRUISE AND THE SPICE MARKET

The mighty Bosphorus flows between Europe and Asia, connecting the Black Sea and the Sea of Marmara along the way to bring the two continents together. From the water’s edge, the beautiful city of Istanbul can be enjoyed from a unique perspective.

Our excursion combines sailing on the narrow, natural strait in a private tender boat, with a unique exploration of the enticing aromas and bright colors in the historic spice market. Relax and enjoy the spectacular vistas along the river’s southern and northern shores.

We cruise past the Topkapı Palace, the Maiden’s Tower, Dolmabahce Palace, and the impressive medieval Rumeli Hisari Fortress. You can also feast your eyes on the magnificent Imperial Ottoman summer residence of Beyleybeyi Palace that proudly shows off opulent and ornate architecture.

Istanbul’s Mısır Çarşısı

Our excursion continues with a visit to one of the largest and oldest covered markets in the world. Located in the Eminönü quarter of the Fatih district, the 17th-Century Mısır Çarşısı (Spice Market) is also locally known as the Egyptian Bazaar.

Peruse the colorful stalls that are piled high with exotic and fragrant spices, herbs and nuts. Lose yourself in the mystical aromas as you wander from one food stall to another.
