How It Works

Since guides are currently not allowed inside the Hagia Sophia, you will learn the history from your expert guide from outside. Afterwards, you can head inside with the ticket, and discover the landmark on your own pace with the included audio guide app.

This Hagia Sophia ticket gives you access to the Visiting Area & Upper gallery - not the prayer area (closed for tourist visits).

 

The included tickets allow you to skip the ticket line of Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern, and Hagia Sophia, but it is not possible to skip the security line. The security line at Hagia Sophia can take up to 60 minutes in high season. The security check at Topkapı Palace and Basilica Cistern can take up to 30 minutes.

 

The Blue Mosque has no admission charge and no ticket lines, however there is a security check line, which can take up to 30 minutes during the mid season and up to 60 minutes during the high season. But don't worry, during your waiting time, your guide, who has very good information and great client relation skills, will entertain you with great stories, facts and useful information about Istanbul.

 

Dress Code:

To enter the Blue Mosque & Hagia Sophia, women must cover their knees, shoulders, and chest. They must also partially cover their hair with a scarf. Men must cover their knees and shoulders. If you do not have a scarf or body cover, you can buy them at the entrance (a scarf is €1 and a body cover is €3)

Friendly and knowledgeable guides made the visits to the sites interesting, efficient and fun! Skip the line is absolutely worth it! The opportunity to spread the activities from a combo ticke over a couple of days and at flexible hours, was really making this an excellent option for us. One suggestion for improvement is to give the adress to the meeting point not only a description - we struggled to find it the first time.

The trip did not start until just after 10am and we were instructed to arrive at the meeting point at 0930 which was a waste of 30 minutes, however once the trip began the guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The Hagia Sofia has so much history and the Basilica Cisterns were amazing. The Topkapi Palace was huge, you need a lot of time to see everything there. Having a guide for the day was very helpful and jumping the ticket queue at the Basilica Cisterns really saved us a lot of time. Overall a good day, made much easier with a guide.

Our guide Haktan (not sure if I spelled correct) was great. Very knowledgeable and always answers any questions you may have eg how to get back to hotel using the T1 tram. Meeting point easy to find via directions giving in confirmation email. I did think the tour was over priced eg $60Euros
