This is our second day in Istanbul for the first time, I am sure you can also make it there by yourself. Just got to the metro tram and alight at tabata station, take a 5 minutes walk and your will reach the dolmabache palace. Hearing aid is provided and hence you need not you engage guide. I think guide is also not allowed in the premises.

Look magnificent but it is a bit run down comparing with other Western country palaces. It is worth knowing that ottoman has such a grandiose palaces too.

Enjoyable but not a must
Entrance fee may cost your a good 25€

I bought this tour from Istanbul Welcome Card (IWC) for a very affordable price, allowing me fast track entry into the grounds.

After my arrival from Sultanahmet to the terminal stop at Kabataş, it was a mere 15mins walk to the entrance of the Palace. There was heavy security but I didn't know if this was normal or there was some other event happening around the area that morning.

There was a long queue to get through security screening but I had caught sight of my guide from IWC who was waiting at the iconic Clock Tower who urged me to move quickly through to the front of the queue.

Once inside those of us who were on the same tour were led to the Palace interior with advice and information from our guide. Although we were allowed audio guides, none of us felt we needed any as we wanted to see the exhibits and move through the viewing areas at our own leisurely pace.

Even through the throngs of other tour groups, we managed to see the opulence of the collections of the past Sultans and how they lived - in Ottoman traditions laced with European aesthetics especially in the beauty of the interior decor. It was like a step back into the Renaissance era. It was exotic.

Photography is prohibited inside but we were free to enjoy the gardens and the secured waterfront areas with lovely photographic sites. I spent a good two hours here, taking in the beauty and tranquillity. Of course, like everyone else, I took the liberty of capturing memorable shots to bring home.

A must see when in Istanbul!

We visited the Dolmabache Palace and it was worth every penny spend. When you arrive you receive an electronic guide and this provides you with an overview of each room you visit. It was so informative and so well maintained.
The view of the Ocean is stunning. There are 2 gift shops and great bargains to be found.
No pictures are allowed to be taken inside the palace

The bus picked me up from the hotel and I enjoyed a cup of sahlep while we waited for the rest of the group. The palace and grounds were very pretty and it was interesting to listen to the commentary. I recommend this tour if you have time while staying in Istanbul.

This is the worst tour ever we wait for more than 1 hour and we call many time then the guy answered and tell that he is covering another tour in Sultanahmet so we need to wait 20 min more !!!! No respect at all strongly not recommended this tour unless u want to make your trip fall apart ,, he also speake more one language at once so he try to pass quickly through out the palace and miss many things like ataturk room we never saw it

The driver who supposed to pick me up at my hotel front door was 15 minutes late. When he arrived he has an angry looking to me, no regret no apology at all. The Palace tour itself was ok, but there is definitely no need to join a tour to this palace as the tour did virtually nothing, as everyone will have a automatic sensory headphone to tell you what you are looking at inside the Palace. And photographing is absolutely NO inside the palace.

Best place to visit in Istanbul
These islands, not only Buyuk Ada, are the best place to go after three days of hectic Istanbul traffic and noise.
