Great Experience
Feb 2021
My tour guide Çiğdem was a wealth of knowledge! I booked this tour as well as the Hagia Sophia/Blue Mosque tour. I booked this as a group tour, but ended up being just me on the tour due to the small number of visitors during this time. Fascinating glimpse into the palace life of the Ottoman Sultans. Great for serious history enthusiasts and the curious public.

Beautiful place. Fascinating history.
Oct 2019
Firstly, very well worth 'skipping the line' as this is a very popular attraction and the queue for tickets is long and time consuming. You are going to be on your feet for a long time inside the palace anyway. We were in a small group. The guide was, of course, well informed and spoke good english. We took in the harem, which turned out to be the highlight. It's a long walk around, but the guide gave us time to either explore areas for oursekves, or just take a break in the shade. Although restoration is ongoing, the buildings are beautiful, as are the landscaped grounds. The history of the running of the palace and the palace politics (often cruel) is eye-opening. For us it was the best attraction we saw in Istanbul. Try to go at off-peak times.
