Whole day spent there, there is so much to see. The best day in Istanbul. Very beautiful, you have audio guide that explains a lot and makes you experience even better. Beautiful photo spots.

Good and practical. You should just make it clear that audioguides can be picked up at the entrance, so that you don't end up in the palace with your shoes on and have to cross the park again to look for them. Otherwise no problem. Thank you.

It was magnificent! It started off with the palace visit. The guide had much knowledge on the historical background and audio guide was helpful inside, did not need to rush in the queue. Cruise was an amazing experience with audio guide and chargeable snacks.

Palace is astonishing, so much antique in there, very clean and easy walk guidance, chandeliers are to another level. Bosphor cruise, perfectly peacefull, just a small advice for new travellers, if you go afternoon, as you walk in the cruise boat, sit on your right side so you can see everything as guided by the audio and you'll be on a shade the whole time. However, it was worthy every penny.

Istanbul is riddled with marvels to feast your eyes upon. These range from centuries-old structures to recent examples of rapidly advancing technology and modernity. With these combo tickets, you get to save big as you explore the best of both worlds, a natural attraction, the Bosphorus Strait as well as a man-made one, the Dolmabahce Palace, all on the same day.

Explore the Dolmabahce Palace

Meet your English-speaking guide after the security checkpoint at the Clock Tower of Dolmabahce Palace.

Your ID as security is needed for the audio guide, which you'll get back after you return the device. Spend as long as you’d like, exploring, and also accessing the Harem section before heading to the pier for the cruise.
