Discover Istanbul’s intercontinental charm with Big Bus Tours. Our open-top sightseeing tour buses explore the city over two routes(Red tour, Blue Tour), introducing you to its most iconic sights and landmarks. You’re free to hop on and hop off the bus as much as you like, with 15+ stops conveniently located close to must-see sights like Bosphorus, Taksim, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and the Basilica Cistern.

Buses are scheduled to arrive at each stop every 30-60 minutes, giving you plenty of time to hop off, visit famous landmarks and uncover your own favourites. Stay for a little while to take pictures, or immerse yourself for hours – our tours grant you the freedom to sightsee at your own pace.

With two different bus routes, spanning both Europe and Asia, there is ample opportunity for sightseeing in Istanbul on board our buses. On our City Tour (Red Route) and Golden Horn Tour (Blue Route), you can learn about Turkish culture and tradition.

You can hop on our Istanbul City Tour: Red Route from any of our 11 hop-on, hop-off stops. This applies to our Golden Horn Tour: Blue Route as well.

Tours start at Sultanahmet Square between Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia next to the main road
