One of the most famous monuments in both the Turkish and Islamic worlds is the Sultan Ahmet Mosque (also known as the Blue Mosque). A superb creation in classical Turkish architectural style, it stands with 6 towering minarets and 260 windows that illuminate its vast main chamber which is decorated with more than 20,000 Iznik tiles.
One of the finest and largest architectural works of art in the world, Aya Sofya Museum was built in the 6th century by the Emperor Justinian, and was one of the largest basilicas in the Christian world. After the Ottoman conquest, it was converted to a mosque and is today one of the most magnificent museums in the world. Take a moment to linger here to absorb the serenity and admire the fine Byzantine mosaics.
Many people consider it one of the most unique places in the world, as well as being the world's largest and oldest Palace. It is the crown jewel of the Ottoman Empire.
In operation since the 14th century, the Grand Bazaar is one of the world's largest covered markets with 58 streets and over 4000 shops. Shop like traders have over the century in this bazaar that is well known for its jewelry, leather, pottery, spice and carpets.

It was a fantastic tour and well worth the money. Highlights of this tour were the Blue Mosque and Aya Sophia. We had a great day and would recommend this to anyone visiting Istanbul. Since it was a Sunday, we missed the Grand Bazaar tour but managed to go on our own the very next day. The stay at Recital Hotel was also pleasant. Its walking distance from all the historic attraction in istanbul. It was a perfect short break for me and my better-half
