What to expect?
The Chora Church tour starts in Sultanhamet. You’ll go deep underground to the Basilica Cistern before heading up Divan Yolu. We pass through Cemberlitas, Beyazid square and the mosque of the same name, and Istanbul University.
Our path takes us to the stately Suleymaniye mosque, built between 1550 and 1557 AD. Suleymaniye the Magnificent ordered its construction and it’s an impressive legacy.
On the Best of Istanbul tour we enter the magnificent Topkapi Palace. A series of courtyards and halls contain fabulous displays of precious jewels and important religious artefacts. The public rooms of the palace are a worthy backdrop to the splendour and intrigue of the Harem.
On the Chora Church tour we wind our way through the narrow streets of Fener and Balat. Our guide will take you to St George’s Cathedral. As the Patriarchate of the Eastern Orthodox Church it contains some of the most significant relics the church owns. Local Turkish born Greeks, known as Rum, still worship here.
