A little history of the sights:
City Walls & Golden Horn (from the bus): The arm of the Bosphorus and a natural harbour of the historical peninsula separating the old and the new parts of İstanbul where the first colonies settled during the Byzantine. The residential area for Byzantine Jews, Italian traders and other non-muslim minorities. Drive along the traces of history at Balat viewing Metal Church of St. Stephen the Bulgarian, 21 kms. long City Walls, the strongest fortification of the middle age.

    l went to Turkey with my family . We booked half day bosphorus cruise trip from this webpage. The tour started from our hotel and they drive us all the city walls after that we went to Golden horn by bus the guide gave us information about the Golden horn . After the golden horn they drive us to spice bazaar we had free time there after that we went to port . When we got on the boat first they show us all the bosphorus at the end of the tour they drive us to our hotel . The tour was amazing thank you very much all this service

    İf you are making to holiday plans in a different country my suggestion is add to Bosphorus Cruise in Istanbul to your tour itinerary.Because you might not miss this experience .Because almost all tour companies are organising this trip and its cost very reasonable price too.The tour has two types.One of them is starting in the morning , the other one is in the afternoon.when i visit to istanbul last time, ı have join to Afternoon tour as usual.Because it is my favorite which i have great fun always.its giving you chance to see the Golden Horn area at the beginning and the City walls, than you are joining to delightfull Cable car experience and in the final you are joining to Bosphorus boat cruise almost 2 non stop. Which is the best way to see some of the most important part of the beautifull city of Istanbul.
