The guides were very good, very nice and formal. The explanations they gave us were very interesting, not heavy at all. And then they left us free time for photos. Highly recommended. Without them it would not have been such a good day. Thank you very much!

Breathtaking architecture and design at all of these buildings full of history. Our guide Huseyin was very knowledgeable and friendly. So worth it to skip the loooong lines waiting to get into each of these locations.

Bene: Headout ha fornito le entrate e ha permesso di saltare la fila, come descritto nell'offerta di acquisto. Male: nella descrizione dell'offerta si parlava di audioguida compresa sia per Aya Sofia che per Topkapi, mentre ho ricevuto l'audioguida solo per Aya Sofia. Organizzazione migliorabile: era chiaro solo il punto di incontro del primo giorno, dove da descrizione sembrava ti dessero i biglietti per entrare in autonomia e alle ore desiderate nelle 3 attrazioni acquistate. Invece ogni entrata doveva essere fissata con una guida, con punti di incontro e orari specifici, ma non ben descritti dalle guide stesse. Nel dubbio di perdersi in questa organizzazione non chiara, anche se avevamo acquistato la possibilità di usufruire delle entrate in 3 giorni, abbiamo preferito visitarle tutte e tre in un giorno, e quindi purtroppo più di fretta di quanto avremmo desiderato.

Hagia Sophia tour was fantastic, great informative guide. 5 stars. The Topkapi guide had poor English and was impatient. The lousy headsets ruined the tour for some. Could have read the information boards for free.

With this combo ticket, save time and money as you enjoy hassle-free entries to Topkapi & the Basilica Cistern. That’s not all - enjoy the benefit of a guided tour for each of the museums including Hagia Sophia and audio guides which are available too in 9 different languages on iOS and Android.

After signing up for this experience, your name will be on the list for each of the monuments for 3 days. Be free to visit at the available times, gathering at the meeting points in front of the museums to skip the lines at 2 of them with an authorized host. With the flexibility of this combo ticket, feel free to visit all 3 museums in one day or choose to visit them on separate days. For each museum, gain as much information as possible about the uniqueness of the monuments from your guide within a 30 to 45-minute time frame.
