As the 2010 European Capital for Culture, Istanbul is one of the world's most visually stimulating cities.

Straddling Europe and Asia, Istanbul (formerly known as Constantinople), capital of the Byzantine and then the Ottoman Empire has for centuries been a cosmopolitan crossroad. It represents a vivid contrast between East and West, ancient and modern. From architecture to art to the food, this is a city that will leave you wanting for more.

With a well-located 5-star hotel as your base of your Istanbul break, you are in a great position to take in all the rich sights Istanbul has to offer. Your luxurious and well-appointed room is filled with all the comforts you would expect of a 5-star establishment. The actual hotel will depend on your desired travel dates.

Included in your city break is a private photography tour with an ex-National Geographic editor and professional photographer. With your five hour tour you will have the chance to capture photos of the incredible diversity Istanbul has to offer. Depending on the day of the week and time you would like to go, you will see locals doing various day-to-day activities. With constant guidance by a very experienced photographer, you will be able to improve your photography skills while capturing the wide range of Turkish lifestyles. Your tour is fully customizable according to your interests and level of photography skills.

As part of your Istanbul break, we will also include a tasting menu experience at one of Istanbul's leading restaurants. The exact restaurant, as recommended by the New York Times Travel Guide or The Guardian Travel, will be confirmed based on the dates of your travel and your dietary needs.
