Not value for money at all and was too rushed Much now not accessible with upper floor closed to visitors

Would recommend this . Went during off peak season and there wasn’t a big queue for tickets but still had bought vip entrance to skip the line as we were with a young baby . Good English guide , friendly with good sense of humour . Brief explanation for about 30-40 min and we were given time to look around after that .

My first time to Istanbul I wanted some help and support in going to this huge ancient site. I picked the VIP tickets. They were only a few dollars more than the standard tour. I found the extra information about the building really helpful to know and deepened my experience.

Wow what a fantastic place visit. Our tour guide very good (haluk barlas from Istanbul welcome card). We learned a lot in a very short space of time. Definitely one of the highlights of Istanbul.

Really informative guided tour as the guide did a very good job of highlighting the history of the grounds and also did a very good job of highlighting different areas for us to go check out on our own after the guided tour.
