      Private Tour of Ottoman Mosques

      Istanbul, Turkey
      From (USD) $253 Per Guide (Maximum 6 Guests)
      • Learn from a pro: Your walking tour will be led by an architect or historian well versed in mosque architecture, Ottoman Empire history, the significance of Minar Sinan, and how to enter mosques in Istanbul.
      • Sehzade Camii mosque complex: Learn the role of Islam in architecture, the basic components of mosques, their decorations & motifs, and the historical impact of palace politics on the expanding Ottoman Empire.
      • Suleymaniye Mosque: This sprawling complex is widely considered the most impressive of Minar Sinan’s designs. Includes the tomb of Sultan Suleyman the Great, under whose leadership Istanbul became the envy of the world!
      • Iznik tile work: Our third mosque offers a chance to explore intricate Iznik tile designs. The town of Iznik, known to Greeks as Nicaea, was famous in the 15th & 16th centuries for tiles in brilliant blues and reds that combined traditional Ottoman arabesque patterns with Chinese elements.
      • Please note: These are functioning holy sites.  When entering mosques, you will be required to remove your shoes. Out of respect for our Islamic hosts, participants should wear long trousers or skirts. Also, females should bring some kind of hair covering (a lightweight scarf is perfect) that can be used inside the mosques, then removed outside when walking from one to the next. It’s to be expected that our tour might be briefly interrupted by a call to prayer.
