“Found this through our Hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014

We found this part of our tour through the hotel. You get to go in the cable car to the top for an amazing view. Besides the view of the cemetary. It was a great view and nice short trip… Something you do once..

“Amazing views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

We found this by reading through the guide book we took out with us - it was a lovely morning mid-March so we decided to give it a go. We took a taxi from the main square by the Blue Mosque and the charge for the cable car was the same as the metro - 3 lira - the views are amazing. Yes, the ride up and down is quite quick but once you're up there you can stay as long as you want. We had a good wander around, had tea at the café before going back down and walking back into town. When we arrived we had a car to ourselves but coming down the queues were getting big so a tip would be to arrive early (think we were there about 10.30am).

“most beautiful natural view in istanbul- peirra Loti”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013

we have liked cable car to perrira loti. It is most beautiful natural scene to enjoy from the top. One can easily reach here by taxi from sultanhmet TL 16 or by bus from Eminonu or by Golden horn trip by sea. Come to Eyup masque and just back side of mosque there is station to take you top of hill in TL 3 only. You can also use your Travel pass for bus, ferry and for going up on hill. It is most beautiful place to visit. You require 1 to 2 hours to complete the full visit and return back.

“Does not worth the visit and the hassle...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

We visited this cable car today and we do not recommend for several reasons. The cable car is too short. The second reason is the place up there is not suitable for baby trolleys. And in fact it is largely a grave yard!!

Although the view is beautiful, I do believe that you can find much better views in another places in Istanbul with out getting into the hassle in here.

Does not worth the visit..

“Great Views of the City and of the Golden Horn from the top of the ride”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

Very busy area, but well worth it for the views. Cable car ride back down to the bottom, only in it for about 2-3 minutes, but really good for the views.
