Be enthralled at the sight of the tomb of Ertugrul Ghazi, the father and founder of the Great Ottoman Empire. Behold the Sacred Trust of Holy Relics of our beloved Prophet, the Swords of Caliph, and artifacts from other historical figures preserved in the grand Topkapi Palace. Pay homage to the companions of the prophet in their final resting place at the Sahabah tombs. You’ll find all these in our Ertugrul adventure tour!
You will touchdown in the Istanbul International Airport, greeted by your personal representative and shuttled straight to your hotel to unwind after your day’s travels. The following day will be a tour through the Hippodrome district. From here you’ll gaze upon the world wonder of the Hagia Sophia Grand Mosque, and perform your prayers in the Blue Mosque of Sultanahmet.
We’ll take you the cities of Bilecik and Sogut, the birthplace of the Ottoman Empire. Here we come upon the revered monuments and final resting place of our great hero Ertugrul, and follow his footsteps in Sogut. We pay a quick visit to the first Ottoman Mosque then continue to the first Ottoman capital, the city of Bursa. Bear witness to the tombs of Orhan and Ozman Ghazi, and the Bursa Grand Mosque, and go up the mountains via cable car to take photos of the beautiful cityscapes and luscious forests below. As you take in the view, enjoy a Turkish delight (lokum) and some mountain-made Turkish honey.
The final leg of the tour brings us to the Mosque of Ayyub Al-Ansari. Climb the Pierre Loti hills via cable car, followed by a cruise tour along the Bosphorus, through the spectacular Dolmabahce and Cirigan Palaces, past imperial pavilions and old wooden Ottoman houses, the Rumeli Fortress, Leander’s Tower, and many other sites. Let us take you back in time to the beginnings of the magnificent Ottoman Empire for an awe-inspiring journey.
