Loved all the tours we got from this pass. It was very informative and the meeting place was only in one place, you will never miss it. The tour guides were helpful. It’s worth the trip.

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...

, Mar 2018
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.

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.

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.

Passes were delivered to our hotel on time. We enjoyed it very much. It was surely the most convenient way of sightseeing in Istanbul. You shouldn't visit Istanbul without one of this pass. Bus tour, dinner cruise, photoshoot and Turkish bath were great. Amazing customer service. We got support over WhatsApp whenever we needed. Good job!

If we had received the info package the day or night before it was to be used we would have been able to us it. So we found a young couple with a baby and offered it to them. I'm sure they enjoyed it. This has been to only mishap with Viator. I think a rain check of some kind would be nice, to be used the next time we book with Viator.

You cannot get your pass before your trip and you may not be able to get your pass in the hotel.
