Classic Card
Martin Dedeke - Germany
The card was really worth it. I can only recommend it. At the hotel, I was immediately given the Istanbul Welcome Card. I enjoyed the Bosphorus tour very much.

the experiences were brief but it really depends on who you get as guide. nonetheless this is a good starting point for anyone who is totally unsure of what to do in Istanbul.

C'était super sympa, le bateau était agréable et le personnel aussi. On s'est laissé emporté par le bruit de la mer et le vol des oiseaux . Par ailleurs, le paysage suivait aussi! Istanbul est une très belle ville que je recommanderai à tous. A notre arrivée pour la prise des billets, nous avons été bien guidés par un agent qui délivre les tickets. C'était très sympa!

My time spent listening to “Bahar,” our guide, was a pleasant one. She was very friendly, and took the time to explain any questions I asked.

When I had planned a trip to Turkey, there were 2 essential things on my dream list to do. One was to cruise on The Bosphorus Straits in Istanbul, and the other was to experience a hot air balloon flight in Cappadocia. I found Istanbul Welcome Card (IWC), bought their Classic Card and thoroughly enjoyed its benefits. My purchase gave me the use of the IstanbulKart (a must have in Istanbul)- an electronically charged card with five credits, giving me access to the trams, furnicular, ferries along with maps and Pdf guides to show me how to move around to enjoy the diverse, unique city stretched over two continents. It was worth every usage as the Classic Card package was delivered to my hotel the day before my arrival and also included a 90min Bosphorus cruise from Eminönu pier. All for the very affordable price of €19. The cruise was wonderful! Seeing the beauty of famed sites along the cruise route with the opportunity to bathe in Istanbul's beauty and capture that on my camera was a mission accomplished because of IWC. I value freedom when I travel. The joy of moving around at my own pace is both educational and liberating as I get to see and do things which interest me. I also get the chance to meet locals and other visitors whom sometimes become newfound friends. So if I got to see and to do what I had dreaned to do at a fraction of the price, why not?

Allt funkade jättebra. Korten fanns på hotellet när vi kom. Bäst var de förladdade korten att åka tunnelbana och spårvagn med. Bosporenturen var dock inte den bra. Dessutom en mycket enkel toa för alla på båten. Välj en annan guidad färjetur om ni är intresserade av att se Istanbul från vattnet.

La cerimonia dei dervisci mi ha colpito molto, anche grazie all'atmosfera data dalla stazione. Nella prima parte ci sono 4 musicisti e solo in un secondo momento arrivano i dervisci che inizialmente camminano e interagiscono tra loro e successivamente iniziano a roteare. Assolutamente da vedere! Il costo dell'attività è inferiore se preso direttamente in loco..

Our guide was great. We had a small group no more than 10 people and he spent comfortable time ensuring that we understood the intricacies. He was a historian and that showed in his explanations. Loved it totally.

We were only in Istanbul for three nights so chose the classic card. Excellent value and the Bosphorous cruise alone was worth more than the 19 Euro cost, throw in the five rides on public transport and it was very good value. We took the ferry over to the Asian side of Istanbul as one of our rides which was well worth it.
