Know before you go
- Topkapı Palace Museum is closed on Tuesdays
- The Sultanahmet (Blue) Mosque is under restoration nowadays so it is not possible to enter inside.
- It is best not to book this tour on Sundays if you have other day options because the Sultanahmet area is usually very crowded on Sundays
- You may easily walk to the meeting point at Sultanahmet, however, if your hotel is far away then hotel pick up and drop off is possible for an extra charge
