Summary

Superbly situated on the banks of the continent-dividing Bosphorus Strait and, like Rome, built on seven hills, the vibrant metropolis of Istanbul has been around for over two-and-a-half millennia. Two great empires have made it their capital – the Christian Byzantines and the Muslim Ottoman Turks – and it is their spectacular legacy that makes the city so appealing to those of us with a passion for archaeology and history. The Topkapı Palace and its mysterious harem, the gloriously Iznik-tiled Blue Mosque, and the gorgeous mosaics and frescoes of the Church of Savior in Chora are just some of the highlights – plus, we have secured very special out-of-hours access to one of the world’s most astounding buildings, the Hagia Sophia (Church of the Holy Wisdom).

Tour highlights:

  • Be treated to very special out-of-hours access to the majestic Hagia Sophia
  • Explore vibrant Istanbul in the expert company of Terry Richardson, the man who quite literally wrote the book on this unforgettable city
  • Enjoy free time to soak up the culture and atmosphere of this memorable destination
  • Sail the blue waters of the continent-dividing Bosphorus Strait aboard a private boat for a different view of the city
  • Indulge in tastes of regional cuisine throughout this tour and be surprised at how diverse Turkish dishes can be
