Definitely recommend the combo tour-Hagia Sofya/Cistern/Topkapi. Our tour guide Hakan did a great job. It was easy to find the tours and we learned lots about where we visited.
Very good guides (28&29 december).
We took a combo card to skip the lines and We went to hagia sophia and basicilia cistern and the palace on the same day since we were leaving on the next day. Our guide Buse was super helpful in getting us into places. She was super nice and very informative. She was very detail in her explanation and was happy to answer any of our questions. Would definitely recommend her and the combo card..
Combo ticket -gives you freedom.
I bought the Combo ticket and I thought all three attractions had to be visited on the same day... instead you can spread them across three days, giving you freedom to see things as and when you like. The tour guides are easy to spot as they have a flag. I was fortunate enough to Hakan on all three of my tours. He clearly explained things and happy to answer questions. I would deffo recommend this ticket and tour guide.
