Wir haben die Karte für ca. 46 Euro gekauft, konnten damit 10 Fahrten mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln unternehmen. Der Eintritt für Haiga Sophia und Topkapi (mit Fastlane und Führung) sowie eine 90 minütige Bosperusrundfahrt waren inklusiv. Also der Kauf hat sich auf jeden Fall gelohnt!!

Zeer goed georganiseerd, startplaats wat lastig te vinden op het plein. Goede gids, Engels was redelijk goed. Shorttrack was eraan voor de moeite, iedereen moest wachten voor security. Interessante uitleg, wel zeer verslavend volk binnen.
