Pay close attention when you visit areas rarely open to the public, including the palace kitchen where up to 800 busy cooks used to serve 6,000 dishes a day!
This tour was excellent! Probably the best guide I had in Istanbul. I learned a great deal about the Topkapi Palace and was able to tour it comfortably. It is also a good first day in Istanbul tour. This was my favorite of the Istanbul tours.
It was amazing experience really , we enjoyed every single minute of the tour , the palace is spectacular with its buildings and gardens and four courtyards and Harem area is fascinating really and the sea views from different locations of the palace is really amazing , and Also our tour guide KARAM was really really good and have a wonderful knowledge of all details of the history of the palace . we really recommend this trip for every one interested in history or even not interested in history for sure you will find something to fall in love with inside the palace .
The lady tour guide spoke wonderful English and Spanish by the way, she has a degree in tourism, has great knowledge and showed us absolutely everything worth seeing in the palace. She answered all questions beautifully and had great patience overall. We met her again by accident during another tour and she was as knowledgeable. This tour was the best decision we made.
our guide was incredible.
Jimmy, did a great job with the tour which we enjoyed immensely. We learned a lot about the harem and how the Sultan's mother played an important and powerful role in palace politics. The sights themselves were stunning. I would recommend the tour to anyone.
Excellent guide and tour
Couldn't have been better. Our guide, Jimmy, was knowledgeable, charming, and provided insights which were invaluable in understanding Topkapi.
it was amazing
We really enjoyed this tour. Guneysp our guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about history and he gave a wonderful overview before starting the tour. His presentation was interesting and fun. We saw everything very efficiently and had an opportunity for a break midway as well as time after the tour to see things we missed. I would highly recommend this tour.
Great guide and very imformative! Not much extra than paying your two entry tickets and audio guides, and you get a real guide who is most helpful and happy to answer any questions you have!
