A great selection of Sinop Shore Excursions. Check out private tours from Sinop port.
" Very informative " - Our Guide Arda was extremely knowledgeable, courteous and witty. It was a hot day and he didn't lose his vigor for the entire tour, with good info and answers to questions and conversation. The set up was good also-- well marked/ well staffed meeting point. Very organized. Thank you. Anne M - Reviewed July 17, 2016
" Amazing Sinop Excursion with Celsus Travel " - We signed up for this private tour of Sinop after finding it on Trip Advisor. On the day of the tour, we met our guide at the port of Sinop. He spent the next 7 hours with us in what proved an amazing tour and discovery of the Sinop city. He is a theologian and a professor who was wonderful. He has terrific energy and enthusiasm which powered us through a busy, exciting day. He was attentive to all our questions and made sure we understood the historical context of all the artifacts and museum pieces he showed us. He was full of small yet fascinating stories relating to statues and the artists who created them. Overall I would recommend Celsus Travel to anyone who wants a magnificent introduction to Sinop.

" Fantastic ! " - Certainly much more reasonable than the ones offered on the ship! We were very happy with our experiences. A great way to see the city in a short period of time. We had so much fun! K. Cordell - Reviewed January 06, 2016
" Worth every penny " - We arrived for the early morning tour which was great as we got some good photos of the Sinop Castle from the outside before the crowds started to arrive. The tour was 1st class combined with our tour guide. We got to go to many places that the public didn't go and they appeared to look all envious as we accessed areas behind closed gates! All in all well worth the money and thoroughly recommended. Liz H - Reviewed August 11, 2016
Sinop's strategic location has contributed to its long and storied history. Situated on a narrow isthmus of the Boztepe Peninsula, Sinop faces the Black Sea to the north and a large harbor and bay to the south. In the narrowest section of the land bridge is the Sinop Fortress Prison, whose origins are ancient and has been rebuilt and expanded by Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Seljuks and Ottomans. Starting in 1887, it was used as a prison. The prison was closed in 1997 and the building reopened as a tourist attraction in 1999. The other most popular attraction in the city is the Aladdin Mosque, built in the early 13th century. Next to it is an historic madrasah, or school. There are also two important museums in the city, the Archaeological Museum and the Ethnographic Museum.
