    I was waiting in queue like every one else, no clear sign of where to skip queue. Top part was closed off hence ticket price shouldn't be what it was. Disappointed

    Although I had been to Istanbul under the Galata Tower many other times with the intention of going up and seeing the city from up there, the long lines even for purchasing tickets always discouraged me. This time I got in line and from my cell phone within minutes I purchased my ticket and was finally able to enjoy the breathtaking view of the Bosphorus skyline and the city

    It was best to have booked online and to visit the tower at exact time of opening. No lines to line up to. And the access to the view deck is much easier. Amazing 360 degree view of Istanbul. Simply amazing!

    Ticket experience was great. We did not wait long and skipped the ticket queue and moved to the main queue which was relatively short. The tickets were scanned without any issues. A worthwhile visit with spectacular views of the sunset agains the Istanbul skyline.

    The wait was longer than I expected. Having binoculars that I could pick up on entry and drop off when leaving would be amazing.

Spend as much time as you want to take the most incredible pictures of Istanbul.
