Why Istanbul Half Day Tour is the best for Kids?

There are usually Full Day Old City Tours on the market. The full day tours include Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern, Hippodrome, Blue Mosque and Grand Bazaar. It’s a quite a long list to do! Visiting the Topkapi Palace requires long hours of walking and it’s overwhelming especially for kids!

Kids usually can not engage with the full day tours. After seeing all these historical places, tour ends up in Grand Bazaar which has 3000 shops and 67 streets.
