So good comfortable cable ride, you have to pay with the kart card , not expensive but a very short ride. No instructions in English on the board or machine on how it works, so only after trial and error. No staff around also only till you get on the cable. Went up and back down again in 10 mins.
Was cold so maybe on a good sunny day views would be better.
But not sure what you are expected to see at the other end... touristy shops cafe and cemetery.

Travels a very short distance and just an excuse to make money. Tour groups push people through so the infrastructure can’t deal with the numbers. You can get far better views from many rooftop bars

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.
