Enjoy a guided tour around the Golden Horn, explore its history and monuments! The Golden Horn is an estuary which forms a natural harbour at the gates of Istanbul. Fortifications built around the Golden Horn allowed Istanbul to protect itself against invaders for centuries!

Accompanied by your guide, you will visit the Eyüp Sultan mosque. This Islamic mosque was one of the first built in 1453 after the Conquest of Constantinople. The mosque is named after Eyüp Sultan, one of the companions of Muhammad. Here you will experience a mystical atmosphere where nature and prayers are in harmony.

We then take the cable car behind the mosque. After a climb of 550 metres in 115 seconds, you will be able to take in the magnificent view of the Golden Horn. Once there, if you like you can buy a snack (not included) at the Pierre Loti café
