Blue Mosque & Grand Bazaar

The Blue Mosque is one of the most prominent landmarks in Istanbul, with its impressive domes, fine courtyards and six tall minarets. While you enjoy your walking tour inside this magnificent structure you’ll gaze in awe at its bluish green tile interior which gives the Mosque its name. It is renowned for its architectural harmony, proportion and elegance. Breathtaking stained-glass windows and graceful arabesques decorate this mighty structure.


Continue your tour with a visit to the Grand Bazaar, one of the largest covered markets in the world with over six thousand stalls that sell everything you can imagine. You’ll have a chance to explore the exotic atmosphere of the covered part briefly. Then visit the open and modern section, where you’ll enjoy local snacks and a presentation of carpets, leather or jewelry, followed by time for shopping


Note: Participants are required to remove their shoes in order to enter the Mosque. As this tour visits a place of worship, please dress respectfully: no bare shoulders or exposed knees. Please expect differences in tour duration due to traffic conditions. Tour is only offered on Norwegian Jade winter sailings.
