About the tour

Lets walk together on the Galata bridge from Karakoy neighborhood to former Constantinople!! On one side there will be Asia and on the other side European continents. The walk will be at the point where two continents meets and where the Silk Road ended. We will be facing to the historic peninsula which couldn’t be shared through centuries and became the cause of many wars. We will see some of the İstanbul’s highlights from the distance as Suleymaniye mosque ( 1550), New Mosque ( 1664), Galata Bridge, Istanbul fish sandwich boats and street vendors. The walk will make you feel that you are touching the heart of Istanbul by watching the fishermen on the bridge, ferry traffic across the Bosporus and the Golden Horn, local rushing between bazaars and ferry piers, Istanbulies staying in line to get the delicious fish sandwich and more...

The tour was very interesting. I got to know a slice life and customs of local people. I would prefer a walk along the bridge was shorter.

Very enjoyable introduction to Istanbul, and Salih was a great guide, but I'm looking forward to doing more tours with him where we can get closer to the beautiful mosques and palaces. I enjoyed our glimpse into the fish market and seeing the 'fish sandwich' stalls where the locals eat, but the views we had of the mosques and palaces were mostly too far away to get any impression of how incredible they are!
