Topkapi Palace Tour and Grand Bazaar

The morning of the tour, we will pick you up from your hotel and take you straight to the famous Topkapi Palace, where you'll learn all about what used to be the Ottoman empire's center of power. Ornate rooms and luxurious patios will draw your eyes to every corner of the gold embellished palace.

One of the most extraordinary spaces is the Imperial Treasury, where you can see the palace's incredible porcelain collection and a particular gem that outshines them all. The Spoonmaker's Diamond is definitely a sight you won't forget, weighing in at a whopping 88 carats. In fact, it's the third largest diamond in the world!

We will explore the old kitchens and stables, the Imperial Council building, the Pavilion of the Holy Mantle and the Chamber of the Sacred Relics. Fun fact: among the important Muslim relics housed in this space, you can see hairs from the Prophet Muhammad's beard, his teeth and his bow. This is also where you can find more than 100 fragments of the Quran

After visiting the palace, the group will head to the Grand Bazaar for an unforgettable shopping experience. You'll have one hour to wander through thousands of vendors selling everything under the sun: spices, tapestries, lamps, rugs, bags, clocks and much more!

Once you have shopped to your heart's content, the group will reconvene and the tour will end at 1 pm in the Sultanahmet district.


The tour includes free pickup from most areas of Istanbul. You can check out the map here. If you are staying outside of the designated area, we will inform you of the meeting point upon reservation.

Transport back to your hotel from the Sultanahmet district is not included.
