About the ride

Take a short break from the hustle and bustle of Istanbul and explore "Green Bursa" as it is called due to its gardens and parks. Your local driver will pick you up from your accommodation at a desired time and you will set out for a pleasant trip in a comfortable, private vehicle. 

- Hotel pickup and dropoff from a professional English Speaking driver / local guide

- 100% Customisable & Private

When on the road, your Welcomer will also serve as your local guide who will share the historical facts, the necessary information about the sights and, of course, his personal input in order to immerse you into the Turkish lifestyle. Add or remove stops from the suggested itinerary and customise the ride according to your preferences. Take pictures, ask your driver about hidden gems or recommendations about local delights and where to taste them.

Your tour will start off from 2Tophane Citadel, a historically important part of the city. There you will have the chance to admire the old city’s walls and Osman’s, the founder of the Ottoman Empire, extravagant tomb. Near the tomb, a park offering excellent views of the city and a Clock Tower can be found.  

One of the main attractions is 3Koza Han, where you can buy fabrics of remarkable quality and you can stop for a cup of tea in the wide yard facing the small mosque at the center. One of the masterpieces of Ottoman architecture and the biggest and most glorious structures in Bursa is the 4Grand Mosque. Another aesthetically pleasing building of Ottoman style is the 5Green Mosque and the Green Tomb that feature a lavish decoration. If you are in the mood for shopping you can ask your driver to make a stop at Zafer Plaza, a very modern shopping mall with an exterior glass pyramid. 

However, the highlight of the area is the 6Uludag Ski Center that attracts many visitors, especially during winter as it offers an amazing ski experience. You can access the Resort by car, but the way that is strongly recommended is by cable car, the 7Bursa Cableway as it called. The journey between the end stations takes 22 minutes making it the world's longest gondola lift line. The view of the mountains and the distant cities is breath-taking and it is considered an experience of a lifetime. 

At the end of the trip, your friendly driver will take you back to Istanbul and drop you off at your accommodation.

EDITOR’S NOTE

- Make sure to taste the famous İskender kebap (thinly cut grilled lamb topped with hot tomato sauce over pieces of pita bread)

- Don’t forget to buy Turkish Delight or lukum as a treat for your loved ones back home.

We recommend that you wear comfortable clothes and shoes and be equipped with an umbrella if rain is expected. Please note that religious sites require modest attire - knees and shoulders must be covered.
