About the tour

The unique city of Istanbul, bearing the traces of many different civilizations, is also famous for its towers. Galata Tower is undoubtedly one of the most impressive and symbolic buildings of Istanbul. Galata Tower, which has witnessed many stories from the Byzantine to the Ottoman period, is waiting for you to share all its secrets and to offer a magnificent panoramic view of today's Istanbul with the seven hills of the historical peninsula. "When I think of Istanbul, towers come to my mind Whenever I draw one, the other gets jealous. If this Maiden's Tower had a mind, she would marry Galata Tower" -Bedri Rahmi Eyüpoğlu
