Where are you departing from?

The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express


Tours starting in:
Istanbul, the gateway between East and West, sits on both the Asian and European continents. This unique location is evident in the atmosphere of this beautiful city. The Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman Empires have all claimed Istanbul, leaving a city of multiple religions and cultures, which to this day exist side by side harmoniously.

The Roman viaducts, built to carry water from the city's outskirts to the palace, remain intact, jostling for space alongside glittering Mosques and the Grand Bazaar complex, almost a city in its own right. Turning 360 degrees at any one point in this city will uncover treasures which traverse centuries, continents & empires, like no where else on earth.
