What people are saying about Hagia Sophia

So glad we booked this Hagia Sophia tour

I was very unsure about booking this tour but now having seen the length of the queues thank goodness I did. We certainly gained fast entry and skipped the queue. In the short time our guide Haluk had available he gave us all the important information needed to start our tour of Hagia Sophia. Special thanks to him for opening our eyes to this Museum's History and making it such an interesting visit. Highly recommended tour, offering very good value for money.

Kadir is a patience and knowledgeable guide.

Kadir Kucekeren was absolutely fantastic. He is very knowledgeable and we saved lots of time enjoying Istanbul with him. He knows all the secrets to truly enjoy the city in a safe and efficient manner. He personalized our trip to fit our cultural interests - like Süleymaniye Mosque. He is very caring of his guests; he helped my mother up and down the old city steps. He is a true gentleman and I will always be grateful to him for his patience and understanding.

Speedy access inside and very informative and entertaining guide

This is definitely worth it as we saved so much time than queuing to buy a ticket in the heat. Once past the security check, there were around 4-5 different areas we stopped while the guide explained. He (Eugel) was very informative and also entertaining and we learnt alot on the history of the Hagia Sophia. Once the tour finishes (around 4 minutes), you're free to wander on your own. I would recommend heading upstairs for the great view you get.

Well structured tour with a very knowledgeable Guide.

The Company representative was at the meeting point as advised and the tour tour started promptly. Guide/tourist ratio was good. We got through the gate with relative ease and the pace of the tour was really measured. The Guide took time to explain every key aspect of the history of the place and threw in humour at appropriate times. The tour ended promptly and we were allowed to stay in there and do things at our own pace. Highly recommended.

Enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide, wonderful trip!

Fantastic! My guide was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and interesting to listen to. He took us to all the interesting spots and filled us in with the relevant history. Far better than seeing it on your own. We went to the Tokapi palace and the Hagia Sophia. He was also kind enough to see us onto the bus going back to the airport once it was over.
