The best way to get to know Istanbul or any city is to walk around it. You'll begin this fun-filled walking tour in the Asian Section of Turkey's grand capital at one of the stations of Marmaray in the European side of Istanbul. You'll meet with a friendly, English-speaking guide who will entertain you with his stories and commentary of the Üsküdar and Kadıköy districts and their popular attractions.
You'll visit the consecrated halls of the historic mosques and learn how religion plays an important part in the lifestyle of many citizens. This walking tour also includes a free meal at a beloved traditional restaurant; feasting on a Turkish dish is another intimate way to get to know the local culture. Next, you'll explore Kadikoy, which is historically known as Chalcedon, literally meaning the ‘City of the Blind.’ Here you'll see old beautiful buildings as well as the fish market and more.
To end this tour, you'll go on a ferryboat ride across the Bosphorus Strait, which makes up the boundary between Europe and Asia; you'll be riding in between two continents at once!
