Book Now

Overlooking the sweet waters of the Golden Horn, visit the giant 16th century Suleymaniye Mosque, which crowns one of Istanbul’s seven hills – a massive complex of Sinan’s skillful architecture. Then proceed to the Church of St. Savior in Chora of 14th century origin, famous for its Byzantine artworks particularly the beautifully preserved frescoes and golden mosaics showing scenes from the lives of Jesus and Virgin Mary. Following a lunch break, we will move to the Pera Beyoglu Area to for a walking tour around its vibrant streets of downtown cosmopolitan Istanbul, with many points of historical, architectural and cultural interest – Christian, Greek and Armenian churches, picturesque shopping arcades and passages, old Ottoman Hans, bazaars and coffeehouses, bustling with shoppers, students and young professionals. Finally, we will end up at the Galata Tower, watchtower of the Genoese fortifications dating from 1349, which we will ascend to the upper public viewing balcony for a 360 degree panoramic view over the Golden Horn, Asian shores, Bosphorus and Princess Islands.

  • Hello Burcu
    I am writing from Madrid, where we arrived last night after a wonderful experience in Istanbul, thanks to you and your organization.  The tours, the guide and the chofer were magnificent, they allowed us to have a view of the city that was relaxed, care free and most of all instructive and fun.
    Many, many thanks Burcu
    Best regards
    Carlos

    • Hi Burcu and Baris, As promised, I'm writing to let you know that our Ephesus tour went extremely well last week. The tour guide, Danis, was informative, friendly and flexible to changes in weather and the desires of our group. The driver, Victor, of course, got us everywhere we needed to be safely. Even though the weather was unexpectedly rainy, we still managed to have a great time and covered almost everything that was promised to us on the itinerary. I definitely think we all got an extremely fun and informative look at Ephesus and the surroundings of Izmir. We got to see historical artifacts, how people lived in a local village (which I think was our favorite part of the tour), and even got to walk a little bit around Izmir. I will definitely be recommending Unison Travel to any of my friends who plan to visit Istanbul and are looking for a fun way to see some parts of the country they may not otherwise be able to see. You all have a fantastic service, and my group and I definitely appreciate everything you did to make sure our day trip was a success. Many thanks and all the best, Zak
