Full description

Enjoy a pass that will take the hassle out of visiting all the must-see sights of Istanbul. This 5-day pass will grant you skip-the-line access to the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern, Dolmabahçe Palace and Turkish and Islamic Arts Museum. As you sightsee through these culturally and historically significant locations your pass will also ensure your very own English-speaking guide, maximizing your visit to all of these spectacular places.  Experience Hagia Sophia, great architectural beauty, and is an important monument both for the Byzantine and the Ottoman Empires. Once a church, later a mosque, and now a museum in the Turkish Republic, find out why the Hagia Sophia has always been a precious building.  Discover the Topkapi Palace and how it was built between 1466 - 1478 and served for over 400 years as the residency and administrative headquarter of the Ottoman Sultans.  Visit the Basilica Cistern, built in the 4th century and enlarged in 532 AD, used as water storage during Byzantine times. Listen to your guide as they explain the mystery of the Medusa heads from Greek mythology. Enjoy a totally unique art experience with a ticket and guided tour package of the Ibrahim Paşa Palace. This unique building, currently housing the largest selection of Turkish and Islamic artworks is a stone structure just as beautiful as the artwork it houses. During your guided tour of the Museum, you will have access to the building's ceremony room and second court, where the collections are held. Visit the second largest church of the Eastern Roman Empire, following Hagia Sophia located in the outer courtyard of Topkapı Palace with your experienced guide. It ranks as the first church completed in Constantinople, before Hagia Sophia. Your 5-day pass allows you to visit the following sites by joining guided tours: - Topkapi Palace - Istanbul Archaeological Museums - Museum of Turkish and Islamic Arts - Grand Bazaar - Blue Mosque - Hagia Sophia - Dolmabahce Palace - Basilica Cistern Guided tours have specific meeting points and timetables.

The guides are very good. Only they are not allowed to explain anything in the sights and do everything beforehand. It takes some getting used to, but you almost always have plenty of time for yourself indoors. The guides have small flags that make them easy to recognize. Be aware that most items are offered Thursday through Sunday if you only have a few days. Otherwise you are very flexible, which has many advantages.

Fantastic city ! Very good & friendly guides ! Just two weak points: - GetYourGuide is selling services of several service providers like 'IstanbulTouristPass'. ONLY the time schedules and service contents on the sites of the service providers are correct, not (always) the one of GetYourGuide. - several attractions are not/partially accessible as the Basilica Cisterns closed already 2 years ago for renovation, as the Blue Mosque accessible but covered in scaffoldings for renovation, as Dolmabahce Palace's gardens invisible due to renovations

It was one of the best experiences we had in Istanbul, during our family visit. Our guides Oguz, Furkan and Ilke were extremely knowledgable and professional. They were on time, the locations were easy to find, and we learned a lot about the museums, culture and the city. This tour was a joy and is a must if you are visiting Istanbul. Many thanks, Sharmistha, Supriyo, Asmit.
