Istanbul half day tour of Bosphorus & Spice Market

This Bosphorus cruise and Egyptian Spice Market half day shore tour is a favorite for our visitors. Easy to book, just go to: http://www.archaeologous.com/tours/13/bophorus-cruise-spice-market-excursion/

On your organized half day tour, your personal guide will take you to the Egyptian Spice Market, a theatre of smells, sounds, sights, colors, spices, dried foods, Turkish sweets and more that will titillate your senses to the maximum. This is the real Turkey and here you will see the locals as well as tourists doing their shopping.

You will then walk a short distant to the public ferry boats (used by the locals daily as their “water taxi”). We will start our relaxing 2 hour cruise up the 22 mile Bosphorus and witness the glamorous world of the opulent Beylerbeyi an Dolmabahce Palaces and mosques as you sail the waterway that divides two continents, Europe and Asia. The kids will like going under one of the world largest suspension bridges, (the Bosphorus Bridge), and past the Rumeli Fortress.

Today’s “super highway’ of trade that links back to the Black Sea and the Mediterranean and Marmara Seas was used by everybody from mythical Jason and the Argonauts, to the Crusaders, Greeks, Persians, Roman and Ottoman empires….and now you can write home about it. Bring your camera!!

Safe travels and great adventures
