“It's an AWESOME SIGHTS for the EYES”
Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful Art and Antiquities!!! It's great and a lot of everything is close so you can take your time and enjoy it. Really fascinating stuff and get the Museum Pass!!! It pays for itself after you go to 3 museums, and your going to go into more than 3 museums, and you don't have to wait in the Long Long lines;)

When you visit Istanbul for the first time you simply cannot not visit this part of the city. It's a must.

“A history lovers feast!”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

An amazing collection of sights: the mosques, bazaars, palaces, museums and the Golden Horn and harbor, all accompanied by incredibly hospitable people, anxious to help visitors. Visited first in fall of 2011 and couldn't wait to get back this past October. Looking forward to another visit in the future.
