Your Trip

This trip is offered on a "join-in" basis. Maximum group size is 12.

Dress Standard

Please be aware that the standard of dress through out Turkey is both conservative and modern. On this walking tour we visit a variety of mosques. To respect this and for your own comfort we recommend modest clothing. This means clothing that covers your shoulders and knees for both men and women. We would also request that women have their own scarf to cover their heads - these can easily be purchased in Istanbul. The weather in Istanbul is highly variable depending on the time of year. Winters range from freezing cold to extremely hot and humid in summer (June, July, and August).

Tipping

If you are happy with the services provided by your local guides a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many Intrepid Urban Adventures destinations. Please consider this when budgeting for your extra expenses on this tour

Closure

IMPORTANT note: The Blue Mosque in Istanbul will be closed between 1st March - 15th May for renovation.
