Cool, short fun ride. The cost is 5 TL and it’s easy to get to from the square. It’s 2 cars that can sit 4 people each.

I took the cable car ride as part of an individual day tour. The view from the top is beautiful. You can take great pictures. The cafe at the top is great if you want to stay a little while and have a cup of coffee but the ride is a joke. I guess from a transportation perspective it works because it is used. This is something of little cost and you can do it on your own. If you are doing a tour and this is included, I recommend considering all options included within the day tour as this stop is nice but not a must do when in Instanbul.

This was fun to do just before 10am on a Sunday ... literally nobody around except dog walkers in the park. Use your Istanbulkart to pay and then afterwards walk down to the water and choose from tram or boat (or vice-versa).

It's not the world's most interesting cable car ride and the views aren't breathtaking but it's nice enough and if you're there too why not try it.

This cable car offers great views of the Golden Horn and the Eyüp district. Although the ride lasts less than 3 minutes, it's worth taking!

There is a village at the top and a café. But this is not why to take the cable car. The views as you pass over a centuries-old cemetery and the vista from viewpoints at the top are the reasons to go.
