What is a semi-private group tour?

It is somewhere in between a private tour and a group tour. If you don’t want to be herded around Istanbul in a 40+ person group tour like cattle and if you prefer a more economical option than a private tour, our semi-private group tours are just for you. When you take one of our semi-private group tours of Istanbul, you are guaranteed a small intimate group setting. All of these tours have a maximum limit of 10 people, with an average size of only 4 – 6 people!
-Visit the St. Sophia, one of the greatest marvels of architecture
-See the spectacular Blue Mosque
-Explore the Topkapi Palace, the imperial residence of Ottoman Sultans
-Visit the Grand Bazaar which is one of the biggest “souk” in the world
