What You Can Expect

Istanbul Aquarium and Aqua Florya Independent Shopping Trip

Visit the aquarium and shop for goodies at Aqua Florya shopping mall

After meeting your transfer coach at your central Istanbul hotel, comfortably drive to Aqua Florya shopping center. Head inside this coastal mall which is one of the largest in the city and boasts Istanbul Aquarium, perfect for all ages.

Start by spending time exploring the 16 aquatic regions of this enormous exhibit on your own. From life in the Pacific Ocean to sea creatures of the Black Sea, follow corridors into ominous chambers and witness these amazing worlds. Marvel at schools of shimmering reef fish that surround vibrant frogs, caiman, and elegant sea turtles. Then, admire tunnels filled with sharks, piranhas and stingrays that hover eerily overhead. Plus, enjoy audio visuals throughout the aquarium that will help you learn about the 1,500 species and 15,000 animals that live here.

If you want more excitement, then head to the 5D cinema to experience a high-tech show (own expense). Feel the 5D effect as you put on specialized glasses and blast off on a roller coaster ride through wind, fog and water into the nether regions of a magical marine world. 

Next, relax with some free time to wander through Aqua Florya mall. Check out this mall of over 140 stores and restaurants spread over 4 stories. Shop as at popular brand name stores or perhaps take a break for lunch at a seafront restaurant or a charming cafe (own expense).

When about five hours have passed, rendezvous with your driver and head back by coach to your hotel where your tour finishes.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2015

Given time was short

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better August 2014

This tour is basically a taxi ride to the mall and back. The guide (is not really a guide) and you get dropped at the mall and aquarium. Maybe would have been better if the guide (who was also gong to the mall the 1st time) knew all the interesting bits in the aquarium and show them to you.
