Good not to wait
Mit der Istanbul Welcome Card-Saver Combo waren keine Wartezeiten, auch an der Security in die Hagia Sophia ging es schnell. Leider gab es verschiedene Zeiten für die Führungen. In meiner Nachricht vom Anbieter standen andere Zeiten als bei meiner Freundin, aber auch dass der Meeting Point vor dem Hürrem Sultan- Hamam sei, was nicht stimmte. Unregelmäßigkeiten führten zu mehreren telefonischen Nachfragen. Dann war der Meeting Point schnell und einfach zu finden. Die Guides waren gut. Die Inhalte sehr informativ. Allerdings gab es keine Headsets. Bei großen Führungen und vor allem in überfüllten Sehenswürdigkeiten sind Headsets unbedingt nötig. Aber ich empfehle trotzdem die Istanbul Welcome Card wärmstens, da die positiven Punkte überwiegen. Vielen Dank noch einmal an das gesamte Team.
Excellent just some indications should be added
This pass allow to visit the main sites for people who dont spend too much time in Istanbul. It s allow to avoid queue. Just important to understand somethings which are not clearly written in this website. - you have to wait for a guide at a meeting point to enter in each site. Once your are inside the site you can visite by your own. - there are only two meeting point, meeting point are very close. The main meeting point is INSIDE the Yesil ev, street kabasakal. The second is close to topkapi cafe. - once you have paid, you Will received an email with an ID. For each visite, the guide Will check your name and your ID. - /! in togkapi palace, the guide stoped us in front of the queue to enter in the treasure. She ask us 300 lira to visit the harem. She said the entrance was at 250. In reality the entrance is at 225 lira... Moreover there was no queue to visite the harem. So personnally i advise to visite the harem by your own.
We found many people for listening the explanations of the host and probably not enough hosts for serving everyone. They were kind and tried to do the best, I would recommend to contract more tour guides in high season Autoguide did not work very well. In general good
