The Palace is amazing, no words to describe it. But prices for tourists is very expensive, 10 time more than local attendance ) I think yous hould review your ticket price policy.

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.

Incredible feeling of the palace, spent a few hours there looking at the details and decoration. Especially impressed by the chandeliers, dishes, patterned stoves and painted ceilings. The audio guide gives detailed information about each room and nuances, so it was doubly interesting. In addition to the main building, we walked around the complex, visited the harem and had tea in the cafeteria. I recommend a visit to all visitors to Istanbul and those interested in history. Would love to come back again when the restoration of the Crystal Stairs is finished

For the tickets everything was fine, very good organization. Of the palace I would have liked to have seen even more and especially to have been able to take pictures; I don't understand the reason for the ban, no one uses flash and at Topkapi it was allowed. The stuarts looked like guard dogs! The bathrooms then too few, long lines

Meet your guide in front of the Dolmabache Clock Tower, and enjoy fast-track entry to the attraction. You will be handed an audio guide to explore the magnificent palace at your own pace! The luxurious interiors are a testament to the opulent and lavish lifestyle of the Ottoman Empire and will most certainly leave you awestruck. You can spend the whole day discovering the beauty of the palace, or just have a quick glance at each of its attractions. Once you have finished exploring the attraction, you may return the audio guide at the exit. If you wish to tour the attraction without the audio guide then pick the available ticket option without the audio guide.
