From hidden gems in the Spice Bazaar to cool boutiques and concept fashion stores, Istanbul is a fashion and jewellery lover’s paradise. First-time visitors will undoubtedly be impressed by the wide variety of designs on offer and wish to discover the very best amongst these.
Pınar Kartal Timer, Pera Palace Hotel Jumeirah’s General Manager with an indeterminable sense of style is an incredibly knowledgeable Istanbul resident who will personally accompany this tour together with a professional guide.
Turkey has been home to many great civilizations and empires, and this rich history is reflected in the jewellery we see today, as many jewelry designers draw on this history for their inspiration. During this walk, participants will also explore some hard to find corners in Spice Bazaar.
Pınar is passionate about sharing her experience and knowledge with people and introducing the local Turkish culture to our visitors.
During the course of the tour, you will be taken to Istanbul's favourite place for lunch; where you can taste a series of traditional dishes. Depending on the season, we may enjoy such dishes as fish kebab, a rich variety of pilafs, borek, or stuffed eggplants. While we eat, our host will discuss the origins of Ottoman cuisine and the significance of each dish through history.
