I am very satisfied with the service we did have which was the Topkapi Palace and Hagia Sofia, but that day the Basilica Cistern was closed and we left for the next day, however the next day we arrived at 12:00 and did not find the guide. It was a private tour that could have waited 5 minutes but it was not. I request if you would be so kind to return the money for the entrance to the Cistern that I had to pay again 25€ for each person and there were 4 of us so it was 100€ in total. Thank you.

The Cistern and Palace are absolutely stanning with a lot to see and go around. The skip-the-line ticket are definitely worth it w Basilica Cistern as it hugely cut down time waiting in line under the skorching sun. Our tour guides Dennis and Buse are very ethusiastic and knowledgeable, who made the experience much more enjoyable and eye-opening. Would highly recommended getting the skip-the-line ticket with tour guides!

Everything was amazing, but the time on the ticket was incorrect, i booked for a 1:45 pm tour but it was actually scheduled at 2 pm. My guide was amazing! Her name is Buse, she was very friendly, extremely well informed, and answered all my questions.

Good option if you want to skip the long lines and access the venues rapidly. Guides were very knowledgeable and open to answering questions. We got plenty of time to visit both locations. For Topkapi Palace we were given headphones so we could stay behind and take pictures and still hear the guide. At the meeting point, it wasn't clear who the contact people were - only one was holding the HeadOut flag; the other was dressed normally and it's only when we asked the other guests waiting that we got to know there were 2 people verifying reservations. Found out at Topkapi Palace that the visit of the harem was not included in our package . We were given the option to pay on the spot to continue with the guide but we chose not to take it. I feel it was not made clear during the booking process that some parts of the visit were not included ; I understood i was booking for the whole package and not a limited one.
