Afternoon Istanbul Bosphorus Cruise Tour with Spice Market
Tour starts with a visit to the Egyptian Spice Bazaar before a cruise along the shores of Bosphorus, the waterway separating the two continents of Europe and Asia. You will have the chance to see the European style palaces of the Ottoman Empire and the palaces of Dolmabahce and Beylerbeyi, in striking contrast to some of the modern mansions that line up the shores of Istanbul.

Tour starts with a visit to the Egyptian Spice Bazaar. Built in 1664, this large, old stone building includes a large number of shops (and a restaurant on the second floor that has long held a venerable place in the life of the city). This collection of shops was actually part of the complex of the adjacent Yeni Camii (the ?New Mosque,? whose construction started in 1597 and finished decades later). Since its been constructed, the Egyptian Spice Market specialized in the sale of exotic spices. Today, these lovely small shops continue to sell spices and also sell dried fruits, nuts, seeds, and other edibles. Than you will board for a cruise along the Bosphorus, the waterway separating the two continents of Europe and Asia. You will have the chance to see the European style palaces of the Ottoman Empire like Dolmabahce and Beylerbeyi, in striking contrast to some of the modern mansions that line up the shores of Istanbul.
