For those curious in world history and the life of royalty, I highly recommend this tour. Our guide, Guzin Sapmaz, had information on every section, item and room we visited. The tour combines architectural beauty and historical information to a high standard

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.

Fantastic tour of Topkapi Palace and Harem. Our guide was very knowledgeable. I learned a lot about the Ottoman Empire and its Sultan leaders through this tour. I definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Istanbul.

This was a wonderful tour, very informative and interesting. Some guide books suggested that the harem could be considered optional when visiting the palace, but I’m really glad this tour included the harem because I found it to be super interesting.

Our guide, Turim, was knowledgable and personable. We were really glad for the 9AM hour before the crowds. The Harem was definitely worth the extra money. I would definitely NOT have wanted to live there with all the palace intrigue.

Really enjoyed the Palace and the tour guide Sabih was excellent, definitely recommend the tour and suggest to book earlier morning time as it is less crowded.

Hello, Thank you for your review. We at Walks in Europe appreciate your feedback. What great advice! Topkapi Palace does get more crowded ad the day goes on so it's always less busy in the morning. Hope to see you again soon, in another city perhaps?
