Fener and Balat Jewish and Orthodox Tour with Galata Tower
We have a passion for uncovering this unique city’s lesser known historical treasures on foot. Our tour starts with imposing Galata Tower which is overlooking to beauties of Bosphorus and the Old-City. After visiting Museum of Turkish Jews, where artifacts chronicling the history of Jewish people in Turkey, plus an art gallery & synagogue, we take you off the major tourist trail to multi-cultural Fener, Balat and Ayvansaray. These are the old Istanbul neighborhoods where Constantinople officially ends which means we admire surviving city walls of Byzantines and discover historic churches, mosques, synagogues, traditional houses and even the remnants of a palace. Finish off our tour with a relaxing ferry journey along the Golden Horn.
