About the ride

Spend the day sightseeing or make the most out of your layover in Istanbul with your local driver who will show you around. Admire the most popular attractions from the comfort of your own private car in a fully customizable tour. Your Welcomer 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.

- 100% Customisable & Private

Your ride will begin at the Historical Peninsula where the heart of the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman Empire once beat. The name might have changed - Byzantium, Constantinople, Istanbul - but the beauty remains timeless. The first stop is the 1The Blue Mosque, famous for the blue tiles covering its interior creating a magical atmosphere. Right next to the Blue Mosque, 2Sultanahmet Square is located where the Hippodrome of Constantinople used to stand. Ask your driver to show you the German Fountain, a beautiful structure with a dome. However, the main reason for visiting Istanbul is 3Hagia Sophia, considered by many the 8th Wonder of the World. This magnificent temple, that was erected with the purpose of being the largest in the world, is intrinsically linked with the history of the Byzantine Empire and Orthodox Christianity. Another must-see attraction is the underground 4Basilica Cistern. The combination of water with the numerous huge column as well as the two mammoth Medusa heads give visitors an eerie, mystical feeling that cannot be found anywhere else. 

Should you have enough time, ask your Welcomer to pause to one of the traditional Turkish markets, the 6Grand Bazaar or the Spice Bazaar and buy something for you and your loved ones. If panoramic view is what you seek, there’s no other place like the 7Galata Tower that dominates the skyline. However, the centre of the modern city of Istanbul is around 8Taksim Square, a cosmopolitan district that tourists mingle with locals. Driving along the coastline, you will come across the remarkable 9Dolmabahçe Palace, a piece of unique architecture. Ask your driver to let you take a stroll around Bebec district which is full of nice cafes and restaurants. Your tour will end at the Bosphorus Bridge spanning over the famous waterway between Europe and Asia. 

At the end of the ride, your friendly Welcomer will drop you off at your accommodation.
