Start your tour with a hotel pickup, and then head straight to the district of Eyüp by minibus. Your first stop here is Eyüp Sultan Mosque, the place of worship that’s widely considered to be Istanbul’s holiest site. Visited by thousands each day, the mosque is known for its colorful yet mystical ambiance. Inside the building is the tomb of Eyüp El-Ensari -- a close companion of the Prophet Mohammed. After exploring the mosque, you’ll pay a visit to his famous mausoleum while leaning about his prominent religious role in Turkey. Continue your tour with a walk to the Eyüp cable car, and then ride up it to the Pierre Loti Café, where the French poet Pierre Loti wrote while admiring views of the Golden Horn. Sit down and relax here, while soaking up commanding views of the horn-shaped fjord below that splits the city’s European shoreline into two. Head down the cable car and stroll across to your tour’s final destination – Miniatürk! This kitsch yet fascinating museum showcases hundreds of models of Turkey’s most famous buildings. Aptly demonstrating the Turk’s pride for their heritage, the miniature park also boasts a selection of figurines that depict the country’s culture; see praying Muslims, Jews at a mosque, flower sellers and more! Spend time exploring the site independently and then check out its popular shopping center for souvenirs to take home. Your tour then ends with a drop-off at your Istanbul hotel.
