A Be Local Eat Local Experience:

Take time to enjoy a traditional Turkish coffee at the historical coffee roaster located in the Grand Bazaar. Each variety of coffee has been prepared with a blend of traditional knowledge, experience and of course a true passion for coffee.  Rest of day at leisure, overnight at the hotel.

Half Day City Tour:

You will visit the Spice Market, the second largest covered market in Istanbul. It was constructed in the 1660s as part of the Yeni Camii (New Mosque) complex. The name derives from the herbs, and spices imported from or through Egypt. It is still the best place to buy Turkish delight, dried fruit, exotic spices and herbs. 

Sunset Dinner Cruise:

Later this evening, enjoy a spectacular illumination cruise between 19:30-23:30 gazing at the iconic structures of Istanbul as they glow against the night sky. Set menu dinner with limited local drinks (2 glass of local wine or 2 beers or 2 soft drinks) will be served on the boat.

Yerebatan Sarnıcı:

Just a short walk across the square takes you to the Underground Cistern, the largest of the many underground cisterns built during the Byzantine Empire to supply the city with water. This cistern is especially fascinating because the Byzantine builders recycled many stone structures - capital heads and columns-- that had been used in earlier temples.
