Turkish Bath, Hammam Tour

Delve into the heart of Turkish culture with our exclusive Istanbul Hammam Tour. The traditional Turkish bath, also known as Hammam, is more than just a spa treatment. It's a centuries-old ritual of relaxation and renewal.
The tour begins with a visit to one of Istanbul's most renowned and historic Hammams. These traditional bathhouses are a cornerstone of Turkish social life and wellness, a place where the ancients came not just to cleanse, but also to socialize.
Upon arrival, you'll be introduced to the Hammam ritual. You'll disrobe and wrap yourself in a traditional cotton cloth called a 'peshtemal'. Then, you'll be guided to the hot room, where you'll relax on a heated marble slab. The warmth of the slab, coupled with the steamy atmosphere, will open your pores and prepare your body for the next step.
Next, a Hammam attendant, known as a 'tellak', will exfoliate your skin using a 'kese', a special scrubbing mitt. This exfoliation process removes dead skin cells, leaving your skin feeling smooth and rejuvenated.
After the scrub, you'll be treated to a soothing soap massage. The 'tellak' will create a cloud of bubbles from traditional Turkish soap, and then gently massage it into your skin. This process is not only relaxing, but it also nourishes the skin, leaving it soft and glowing.
Finally, after the massage, you'll be guided to a cool room for a period of relaxation. Here, you can sip on a refreshing glass of herbal tea or Turkish 'sherbet', a traditional sweet drink, as you reflect on the unique experience.
Our Istanbul Hammam Tour is not just a spa treatment, but a journey into the heart of Turkish culture. It's an opportunity to experience a tradition that has been passed down through generations, a ritual that nourishes both the body and the soul.
