Was a little unsure about using the website but everything was great no need to stand in que for tickets. Scanned the downloads and straight into the tower .

The view is gorgeous, I loved the idea that you can walk all the way around the top of the building to see the view from all sides.

I bought tickets online to save time. I enjoyed the experience a lot. The view was great. One suggestion: it would be a good idea to organize somehow the regular queue for tickets, so people do not stand on tje street behind the tower.

As we approached the Galata Tower, in a light rain, we saw an extremely long line of people waiting to buy tickets to the tower. My friends looked at me saddened and said it is too long of a wait. "One Moment!" I exclaimed and opened the tickets I downloaded from Headout. We walked right in, entered the elevator and took lovely photos of ourselves and the city. It was glorious! Thanks Headout!!!

Compramos por anticipado las entradas para subir a la Torre Gálatas a través de Headout. Buena decisión: nos ahorramos la cola para comprarlas allí mismo. Merece la pena subir a la Torre Gálatas para tener una vista panorámica de toda la ciudad, una urbe gigante de 20 millones de habitantes. Fue maravilloso.

These tickets are valid until 31 Dec, 2023.
