I always feel a bit uncomfortable seeing a religious experience / ritual turned into a tourist spectacle, but if it is to be done, these guys find a good tasteful way to do it. Not sure if there are competing dervish shows in Istanbul, but attend this one with confidence.
It was beautiful and moving. I highly recommend it for anyone who appreciates people expressing their spirituality.
This show is incredible and mesmerizing. I have never seen anything quite like it. Well worth a trip during your time in istanbul.
Brilliant - Definitely Worth Experiencing!!!
The Whirling Dervishes were truly spiritual. The venue was small enough to make the experience intimate and personal. We recommend this experience whole-heartedly to all visitor to Istanbul.
It was a truly spiritual experience
This was an amazing experience, not to be missed. I was impressed by the information related before and during the presentation, and the and #39;non -touristy and #39; atmosphere. Highly recommended if you and #39;re open to an alternative experiencie.
Wonderful setting and ceremony--well worth money, time, and effort to locate theater
Very interesting show but I loved it. Amazing how they can perform 45 mins without getting dizzy. I would recommend for people who wonders what Whirling Dervish is. Others may find it slow but I loved it. Unfortunately we can't take photos.
