We'll start out this tour by going across the Galata Bridge to the Egyptian Bazaar (also called the Spice Market). Walk around and explore inside the bazaar, where you'll enjoy lots of shops selling dried fruits, nuts, teas, spices, and natural remedies. We'll also walk around the outside area of the bazaar with lots of local food vendors. Also, shop the New Mosque (Yeni Cami), where you can find products such as seeds, gardening supplies, and even caged birds!

Afterwards, we'll see the Rüstem Pasha Mosque, renowned for its incredible architecture, and the Mahmutpasa Markets (Tahtakale market district), which will be a very authentic experience, as few tourists visit these parts.

One of our final stops will be the well-known Grand Bazaar with over 5,000 shops and stands. Shop for exotic fabrics, clothing, furniture, and jewelry, or simply browse this fascinating market. This walk will be a cultural experience!

After the Grand Bazaar, we'll conclude the tour at Çemberlitas, or the Hooped Column of Constantine. This column served as the centerpiece in the Forum of Constantine, to celebrate and honor the designation of Constantinople as the new capital of the Roman Empire.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
