  • Your date starts when you receive the first clue leading to a hidden gem in Istanbul. Be it a historic site that mesmerizes with its beauty or a local cafe known for its delightful Turkish pastries. Explore, solve riddles, and progress to your next exciting location.
  • After a few destinations, you'll take a break at a cozy restaurant serving authentic local cuisine. Here, enjoy scrumptious dishes while discussing your adventure so far.
  • The final clue will lead you to a breathtakingly beautiful spot where you can watch the sunset over the Istanbul skyline. Here, exchange thoughts about the day, your discoveries, and revel in the romance of the moment.

Preparation steps:

  • Firstly, you need to plan your mystery tour. Seek out interesting, less-known places in Istanbul. Make a list and create riddles or clues that lead to each one of them. It's perfect if the locations have a certain historic, aesthetic, or gastronomical appeal.
  • Prepare a backpack with essentials for city exploration; think water, sunblock, a city map, snacks, and maybe a blanket for the last stop.
  • Arrange for a taxi or use public transportation for quicker navigation between the points on your tour. Istanbul's metro and tram system is quite efficient and can save you a lot of time.

Some tips:

  • Ensure you wear comfortable shoes as there may be quite a bit of walking involved. Besides, some historical sites in Istanbul have cobblestone streets.
  • If you're not confident about creating an engaging mystery tour, consider hiring a local tour guide or buying a mystery tour package.
  • Lastly, don't rush through the locations. The goal is to spend quality time together. Enjoy the experience, soak up the location's vibe, and connect with your partner.
