Without knowing what to expect, the meeting point and coordination was great. Got to our guides easily and they really looked after us through the 3 locations (we did them over 2 days). They knew their history and really explained things so well. The guides were friendly and really interacted with the group, answering questions across a wide range of topics, not just about the location. Well worth the cost, especially skipping the lines!

Really excellent experience, both because of the effectiveness of the skip-the-line tickets and the skill of the guide Gamze Kadriye Toprak!

We missed the tour the first day because we were exhausted to complete the whole package, but we were allowed to do it the next day.

My experience in the blue mosque package was good. However i would rate my Hagia Sofia visit with five stars (excellent), I have enjoyed much more that visit because of Haluk, who is one of the Headout guides. He is the best guide i have ever met. His dedication, kindness, knowledge (loads of it) and patience make him outstanding. Thanks Headout and many thanks Haluk!!!
