Located in an ideal strategic position straddling the Bosporus strait, Istanbul is both the largest city in Turkey and its economic, cultural and historic centre. Uniquely situated in both Europe and Asia, Istanbul’s over 15 million residents have an array of world class historical and cultural sites at their disposal. With the help of our Istanbul guided city tours, you will gain an unparalleled insight into both the modern and historic capital of Turkey.

Istanbul is renowned for its fascinating mix of architectural styles. From the Roman and Byzantine eras the Basilica Cistern and Hippodrome are outstanding feats of engineering, and the monumental Hagia Sophia has stood the test of time, continuing to wow visitors to this day, while the Süleymaniye Mosque and the Topkapi Palace are amongst the many architectural wonders of the Ottoman Empire. Renaissance Revival, Neoclassical and Art Nouveau buildings seam harmlessly with the ancient and Ottoman styles, contributing to Istanbul’s unique atmosphere. The addition of modern institutions such as Istanbul Modern and the Pera Museum ensure the city continues to move forward while maintaining its world-class heritage.

Frequently Ask Questions

What is a self-guided tour?

A self-guided tour is a type of tour where visitors explore a destination on their own using an audio guide or a map. Unlike a guided tour, visitors are not led by a tour guide and are free to choose their own pace and explore the sights that interest them the most. Self-guided tours offer more flexibility and freedom to visitors. They are a popular option for those who prefer to explore a destination independently. 

Is a Walking Tour suitable for all ages?

The walking tour is suitable for all ages, but keep in mind that it involves a fair amount of walking and standing, so participants should be able to walk for at least 2.5 hours. Additionally, wearing comfortable walking shoes and bringing a water bottle can help ensure that you're comfortable throughout the tour

What is a Multilingual Audio tour?

A multilingual audio tour is a type of tour that provides visitors with audio guides in multiple languages. Visitors can use headphones to listen to the audio guide as they explore a destination, with the audio guide providing information about the sights, history, and culture of the area. The audio guides are typically pre-recorded and offer visitors the option to choose their preferred language.

Istanbul is a city with so much history and culture, and the Vox City audio guide really helped me to appreciate it all. I loved learning about the city's ancient past, as well as its more recent history and modern-day culture. The guide was easy to use and really enhanced my overall experience of Istanbul.



I was a bit nervous about visiting Istanbul on my own, but the Vox City app made me feel much more confident. The audio guide was like having a knowledgeable local friend with me at all times, and I felt like I was able to navigate the city much more easily because of it. I would definitely recommend this app to anyone traveling to Istanbul!
