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!

I love the tourist guide and the customer service of headout. I came quite late for the meeting and the assistent did the best to take me to the group. The tourist guide had a great knowledge about the history of Istanbul and answered any question.

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!!!

Save loads with these combo tickets to 2 iconic attractions of Istanbul, and get 2 days to visit them. Witness the wonders of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Blue Mosque with a guide, and enjoy skip-the-line access for a guided tour of Topkapi Palace.

Enveloped in a Dreamy Blue Glow

As you enter the spacious courtyard of the mosque, you will be greeted by a beautiful fountain and a special area for ablution. The lower levels and interior walls of the mosque are adorned with over 20,000 handmade İznik-style blue ceramic tiles. The mosque is steeped in the rich history and secrets of the Ottoman Empire, dating back to its opening in 1616. Marvel at the stunning crystal chandeliers and observe the clever use of ostrich eggs within them. These eggs serve the purpose of keeping away spiders and preventing cobwebs from forming inside the mosque.

Ottoman Royalty at Topkapi Palace

Topkapi Palace, built in the 15th century, was the official residence of the Ottoman sultans for over 400 years. With skip-the-line tickets, bypass the long queues and explore the vast palace with your guide. Explore different areas like the Treasury, which houses some of the most valuable artifacts from the Ottoman Empire. The Imperial Council Chamber, with distinctive Ottoman domes and intricately designed Kütahya tiles lining the walls, is another must-see attraction. Spectacular views of the Bosphorus Strait and the city of Istanbul from the palace's gardens and courtyards make for a picture-perfect scenery.
