Sehr zu empfehlen
Ich kann die Istanbul Welcome Card nur empfehlen. Macht die Besichtigungen und Fahrten mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel sehr einfach.
Made it so easy!
I bought the 5 day deluxe card as it included the travel pass with 20 trips. It was waiting on me when I arrived at the hotel and having the pass made access to all the locations visited so much easier. Clear instructions were sent if meeting guides in busy locations. Guide was excellent and on back of 2 trips with him, specifically booked another knowing it was with Emre. The travel pass gave me the confidence to use public transport without worrying about paying the right amounts or getting off at the right places. It made me more likely to venture out and make full use of all the trips. I used underground, trams funicular and ferries, great value and so useful.
Good choice for visiting Istanbul
Very convenient if you want to see the main museums and historical sites in Istanbul. The things included in the card corresponded with the things we could visit. We also used the public transport card, which was very useful to reach the places that were far from the city centre. We would highly recommend this card.
Getting the highlights of Istanbul

I would like thank specially Buse a wonderful person, very interesting and enthusiastic guide :) to thank to her i can bring back with me great memories. :)
