Great Value! Excellent Service! Highly recommend :
Istanbul Tourist Pass was a great deal and my friends and I are so glad we bought it. We highly recommend it to anyone visiting Istanbul. It made our trip much more enjoyable and easier to navigate. We were able to see so many attractions and sites for on a discounted flat rate each day. Our friend group does have some pretty thrifty people and we were all quite happy how it made us save so much With its mobile app and digital passes it was very practical and efficient to use unlike our other pass experiences in different cities. The app also served as a guide book which made our trip much enjoyable. All of the locations knew just what to do when we showed our pass on our mobiles and were pleased to see it worked so seamlessly. No downsides, gimmicks or hidden charges! It was nice not to have to take out our credit cards all the time. The mobile Internet device connecting us all - 8 people - at the same time in our multiple devices with such a speed was just superb. It made our lives so much easier being able to connect to the Internet and being able to make international calls and share our great times with our families and friends we left behind. Also, the Whatsapp help service was amazing, it made miracles for us when we were almost lost and asked for directions, they responded instantly and saved our day : Thank you guys for such an excellent service! Simply, Istanbul Tourist Pass made our trip much more enjoyable and all of us so happy! We all highly recommend it to everyone. It will bring your Istanbul trip to a much higher level of joy :D Tesekkürler Istanbul Tourist Pass! See you again soon...

The hop on hop off 3 days pass was hardly used due to miscommunication with the merchant and viator as claimed by the merchant that they have notified viator since last month that they are going digital but until today the viator website has not been updated according to the merchant who kindly delivered the museum pass that needed to be presented physically. the museum passes came in late and wasted my time just strolling around the hotel area where no pass is needed. When i purchased this product, viator confirmed the purchase and assured me that the passes and tickets will be delivered 24 hours before my arrival. It was already my second day and still waiting for the museum passes to be delivered by the merchant. The big bus guys can not undertand English and they prioritize walk in passengers who will pay directly to them. The merchant offered apologies and promised to return what was not availed in that 3 day pass.

What a disappointing experience. I bought the three-day pass. I thought it was three days of hop on and hop off. It wasn't. The skip the line card has to be delivered to your hotel. The bus departures from point to point are not frequent. The cruise was long and the show on board was like an amateur night. The belly dancer was over 50 . There are much more interesting ways to see Istanbul than this option.

However, just riding the hop on for a day and taking time for pictures and walking would be a good investment. Do a one day pass and skip the big package.

Very disappointed with what it cost.

Worth every penny.

I got 7 day Pass. Overall it was worth the money although I did not cover all the museums and used the museum card only for Topkapi and Hagia Sophia. This card cannot be used for Dolmabahce Palace and you need to buy separate ticket. The package also included Istanbulkart which you otherwise get for 6TL.
The Dinner cruise and Hop on hop off boat tours were very good and the Dervish experience was great. The WiFi device worked very well although you cannot use more than 1GB data in 24 hrs and it is supposed to be used purely for tourism purposes. The tourist pass gives you peace of mind and lets you organise your trip even before you land in Istanbul, saving lot of time. There are plenty of places to see in Istanbul and this pass gives you a good coverage.

Worth the price

El pase llegó a tiempo, mucho antes de nuestro check-in. Nos encantó la presentación del mismo. Ahí se ve la seriedad y el compromiso de la empresa. El contacto con la empresa es rápido y son oportunos. La descripción de sus servicios es clara. El asesor que tuvimos por Whatsapp llamado Nelson, fue también muy oportuno y formal. Resolvió todas nuestras dudas. Este pase vale la pena si vamos a estar los 3 días completos en Estambul, pues de lo contrario quedan cosas pendientes. La verdad el HOP ON-HOP OFF BUS no nos gustó del todo. Primero la atención de la mujer encargada de imprimir los boletos fue un poco tosca y nada formal, los hombres en cambio son más bien formales.También vimos un número normal de turistas y los buses se demoran mucho en las paradas, no alcanza uno a aprovechar este pase como debería ser. Este servicio tiene las paradas claves en Estambul pero no nos convenció del todo. Otra observación, es que sería bueno que la empresa pudiera dar la opción de seleccionar otras atracciones en vez del baño turco, a nosotros esa entrada no nos llamó la atención. hubiéramos preferido encontrar en el pase la entrada a la Cisterna Basílica o a la Torre de Gálata. Otra observación es que reservamos a través de la página y con tiempo la fecha del crucero y la cena y cuando llegamos llamamos y nos dijeron que no veían la reserva y nos ayudaron con la reserva de último momento, pero si no hubiésemos llamado tal vez no hubieran pasado por nosotros al hotel. Es un tema a tener en cuenta. Sin embargo, el crucero estuvo excelente, el acceso rápido a las atracciones nos encantó, la opción de pagar un pequeño recargo para el traslado desde o hacia el aeropuerto de Sabiha es excelente y clave para el turista. Agradecemos a Viator y a la empresa proveedora del pase por su seriedad y esperamos nuestros comentarios sean tenidos en cuenta.

It was average. Other cities that have the hop-on-hop-off, allow you to use the buses for the entrie period of your city pass. The Istanbul one only allows you you to use the buses for ONE day. that is a pity because for the rest of your stay, you have to either walk or take a taxi to the other sights that you have tickets for. Also, the bus-stops are VERY poorly sign-posted and the drivers are extremely rude.

Delivery on time, everything went just smoothly. Special thanks to the very kind Istanbul Tourist Pass customer support team that made sure my late order was delivered quickly.
