Istanbul Walking Tour with Joseph Stanley Group
Today I had a half day walking tour with Joseph Stanley Group. I picked them from their hotel in Cihangir which is a trendy neigbourhood. We walked down the hill to Findikli and got on the tram to Oldcity and Sultanahmet district. Had Doner Kebap Wrap (Gyro). Visited Hipodrome, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Local Markets and Spice Market. Sampled some Turkish Delight in Spice Market and had some baklava at a local Baklava store in Tahtakale. Enjoyed some Turkish cofee and tea and had a rest there.
During the walk to the Spice Market. Local Municipalities had an electronic booth where people can learn about events in Istanbul and also an opportunity for a memory picture. We had a try if it works. Below is the result :)
Afterwards we continued our tour, walked on the Galata Bridge in front of fish restaurants. Walk through Camando stairs by the Criemean War Seasmens Hospital to Galata Tower and to Serdar-i Ekrem Street. Enjoyed great photo opportunities of 19th century houses. Walked on Istiklal Avenue. Visited Pera Palace Hotel. Stopped by St. Anthony Church and smapled hot halva at Koska. Walked through Beyogle Fish Market and Navizade Streets.
It was a little bit cold but an enjoyable day. I will continue touring with the smae group on Tuesday. We will do a fullday tour of Grand Bazaar, Bosphorus Cruise, Asian Side of Istanbul, Camlica Hill and Beylerbeyi Palace.
If you would like to do such a walking tour of Istanbul. I will be in Istanbul till May 7th.
