What people are saying about Basilica Cistern

in reality the skip the line is not very useful because in the period in which we went (January 2020) there was not so much tourist flow, so you could easily enter with little line. however the guides that we found thanks to the purchase of the package were all very good and they accompanied us at the beginning of each journey, they explained everything to us and then they let us visit according to our times. we were satisfied.

Totally worthed having a guide during your visit; the Basilica Cistern is currently closed for restoration, so you can visit only a small part (which we didn’t)

all at marvelous. the very knowledgeable and reliable guide accompanied us to skip the line and explained the history.

is a big diference visiting alone or having a guide that can help and give information!

Excelent, friendly, supportive and knowledgeable guides. Thanks Emir and Can.
