The whirling devishes show was too spiritual to be recommended for tourists. It had a VERY slow rythm and was pretty repetitive and boring already 5 minutes after the intro. The open non alcoholic drink they offer is actually water! Not worth all the fuss...More

It was one of the best experiences in Istanbul. Everyone has to see the dervishes dancing. Mysterious music in the background and rich poems singing by great voices. It’s totally worth.

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to

No picture-taking allowed. People who 'forget' this rule get a reminder by way of a laser-pointer. Just put away the camera, enjoy the event, and let other people enjoy the event without constant camera fidgeting moves.
