Cruise Excursions, Daily Tours and Travel Packages of Istanbul.
Istanbul's most prominent attractions are of the architectural variety, a selection of formidable and historical structures that make sightseeing in Istanbul educational as well as visually rewarding.
Sightseeing in Istanbul offers attractions such as the Hagia Sophia, a huge museum and former cathedral, that is adorned with stunning mosaics. Another iconic Istanbul attraction is the Blue Mosque, with its graceful minarets and tiered domes. The 1st century Sunken Palace is supported by hundreds of underground columns, an essential Istanbul landmark.
While sightseeing in Istanbul, Galata Tower offers visitors a 360º panoramic view of the old town. Nearby, the 5th century Land Walls stand testament to the city's resistance of its 1453 conquest by the Ottoman Empire. The Covered Bazaar, or Kapali Carsi, is the oldest and biggest enclosed bazaar in the world, a must-see while in Istanbul.

We contacted Celsus Travel end of 2015 to arrange a quote for a private tour on our chosen travel locations for August 2016. Their travel counsellor Ezgi Kurt was always quick to respond to my questions and we felt our itinerary with 4 star hotels was well priced. We arrived in Istanbul and were met at the airport. We spent 3 nights at the comfortable Pera Tulip Hotel and 3 days on Istanbul tours with a very knowledgable guide Gizem. We can thoroughly recommend Celsus Travel and had a wonderful Turkish holiday! There was a lot of security around all the sights in Turkey and at no time did we feel insecure. The people are so friendly, the food is amazing, so start planning your next holiday to Turkey with Celsus travel soon!
