VIP entrance Hagia Sophia

, Jan 2020
Would recommend this . Went during off peak season and there wasn’t a big queue for tickets but still had bought vip entrance to skip the line as we were with a young baby . Good English guide , friendly with good sense of humour . Brief explanation for about 30-40 min and we were given time to look around after that .

Nice, basic intro to Hagia Sophia

My first time to Istanbul I wanted some help and support in going to this huge ancient site. I picked the VIP tickets. They were only a few dollars more than the standard tour. I found the extra information about the building really helpful to know and deepened my experience.

Informative Tour

Really informative guided tour as the guide did a very good job of highlighting the history of the grounds and also did a very good job of highlighting different areas for us to go check out on our own after the guided tour.
