As dusk falls, meet your guide at the pier and begin your Istanbul discovery on an air-conditioned motor coach. Upon reaching Galata Bridge, walk underneath the span to see the lively restaurants along the waterfront.
Continuing on, pause to watch an evening prayer at the New Mosque, known locally as the Yeni Camii, and then venture to the Kumkapi district, famous for its fish markets. Stroll along the wharf, experiencing the nighttime atmosphere as revelers dine at the restaurants and musical trios perform on the street. Next, you'll see Istiklal Street, a pedestrian avenue infused with local color yet stately with its 19th- and early 20th-century European architecture.
Your evening exploration of Istanbul concludes at Taksim Square, where you will board your motor coach for the short journey to your ship.
