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. 

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

- 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 perfect example of the blend of the baroque style with Turkish architecture is the 4Topkapi Palace. If panoramic view is what you seek, there’s no other place like the 5Galata Tower that dominates the skyline. Driving along the coastline, you will come across the remarkable 6Dolmabahçe Palace, a piece of unique architecture. Your tour will end at the 7Bosphorus 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.

Karim was very polite and friendly. He was on time when he picked us up from the airport and on our return. Very reasonably priced. Excellent way to spend your time between flights. Can definitely recommend Welcomepickups very highly!

Our driver was at our hotel at the agreed time for the tour. He was very courteous and gave us excellent service and was very informative as to the history in the area we were drive-by through. I would highly recommend him.
