I redid the tour recently with a friend after 27 years. The Hagia Sophia stop was a short one. I previously went upstairs too but understandably there's a time constraint and the queues to get in are another story apart from the weather. The tour guides were great: knowledgable and accomodating. Lunch was superb and overall arrangements cant be faulted.
