This trip is designed for you if you've been to Istanbul before and want to see the less visited but still amazing sites that especially get you outside of Sultanahmet. This tour is also a great option for those wanting to extend a longer Turkey tour by adding a few days more in Istanbul, but not repeating the typical Hagia Sophia/ Topkapi Palace route. This 3 night 4 day tour, assumes you arrive early on day 1 from your flight and allows you to visit the splendors of the Dolmahce Palace and the Yildiz palace on the Bosphorous. The end of the day will be drinking tea while watching the sunset and commuters across the romantic Bosphorous straits from the Ortakoy Mosque. Day 2 takes you to a less visited area - the cross roads of Orthodox Christianity, Judiasm and Islam all in the same avant garde and up and coming neighborhood of Balat. You'll see incomprehensible diversity in a small area on the Golden horn with lots of real life going on around you. Day 3 will slow things down and allow you to visit the unbelievable but often overlooked Istanbul Archaeology Musem before you take a ferry to one of our favorite hangouts - the progressive, always on the move and very cool Kadikoy, where you can taste lots of street food and see how locals live... Day 4 after a nice rest includes private transfer to the Istanbul Airport
