Also visits to the Museum of Turkish and Islamic Arts and the intimate Mosaic Museum to name but a few. A private cruise on the legendary Bosphorus waterway and a visit to the opulent Dolmagahce Palace. Other visits to be confirmed are  to the Topkapi Palace, the Byzantine church and the Archaeological Museum.
