After meeting with other tour participants and tour guides we drive to Asia Side by passing through Bosphorus Bridge by bus to the Topcular Ferry station in Asia side of Istanbul. We leave from Istanbul by taking the ferry to Yalova and then drive to the center of Bursa.
On the way to Bursa, we will stop at Deniz Safari Cafe. We will have a break in the cafe for an hour. You will be able to hire ATV here and enjoy an ATV safari in the green forest. After that, we continue to drive to Bursa.
Our first visit will be to Green Mosque and Green Tomb, which belong to the Ottoman Sultan Mehmet I. If you would like, you can also visit the bazaar nearby to buy some handcrafted gifts and high-quality silk.
Afterward, the cable car will take us to the mountain. We will enjoy the amazing view of the entire city and take lots of pictures to keep as a memory of this day. We come to the first stage of the mountain and continue to the top, 2,486 meters above sea level, by tour bus. Then we drive to the restaurant for a traditional lunch. Our next stop will be at the astonishing old tree which is more than 600 years old. It has become one of the most charming landmarks of the city.
