Start your tour from the European side of Istanbul with a walk through the Spice Bazaar, an extensive market which was built in the 17th century to finance the upkeep of the nearby mosque--Yeni Cami. The bazaar is often referred to as the "Egyptian Market" due to the fact that spices used to come to the market from India and Southeast Asia via Egypt.

Take a ferry ride to the other side of the river that separates the European and Asian parts of Istanbul to explore the famous open-air street market of Kadýkoy. Notice the big difference in atmosphere between the Spice Market and the Kadýkoy which is more in tune with the way most people in Istanbul cook and eat.

Indulge yourself in the huge variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables, with plenty to discover for the "foodie." Feel the real bazaar shopping experience with the fishmongers, bakers, butchers, and grocers singing out to attract you to their stall. Take your time and explore the many pastry and deli shops, and the aromatic spice stands. There is plenty to see and buy, with information and recommendations available.

Feeling hungry after all that walking? Want to try some of the things you have seen? One of Istanbul's best restaurants is just around the corner. Enjoy an ethnic countryside-style dish in a traditional atmosphere.

A ferry ride back to the European side ends our delicious walking tour in Istanbul.

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.
