why you should get this pass

The biggest perk of buying the Guided Museum Pass is that you can say goodbye to long lines, and expect a more wholesome and insightful experience. With this pass, you get access to historical museums and cultural points of interest in Istanbul. Designed for tourists, this will certainly save you time and money. Known for its transcontinental position and for straddling the epic Bosphorous strait, Istanbul is a paradise with an ancient heritage. To get an in-depth perspective, an English-speaking guide will accompany you. Uncover the mystery of Hagia Sophia, once a church, later a mosque, and now a museum. Walk the same halls as the Ottoman sultans at Topkapi Palace, marvel at an extensive collection of rich carpets and art of Islamic influence at the Turkish and Islamic Arts Museum. You also get to visit the first church in Constantinople - Hagia Irene, built over the ruins of a pagan temple on the orders of Emperor Constantine I. The pass offers all this and more, especially if you’re interested in tracing the civilizations and cultural diversity of Istanbul's top-drawer attractions!
