The Marmaray Tour (approx. 7-8 h) will take you on a fantastic journey across two continents.
Our tour will start in the European side in the district of Sultanahmet, a UNESCO "World Heritage Site". We'll stroll around the old city, admiring the magnificent legacy of 3 great empires: Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman.
Then, taking the futuristic, undersea Marmaray railway, in only 4 minutes we'll reach the Asian side of Istanbul.
In the traditional district of Uskudar we'll visit mosques, street markets and experience the daily life of Istanbul's locals.
Finally, we'll get back to the European side on a scenic ferry cruise across the Bosphorus.
