Got the 3 day pass but felt like based on usage and timing of tours,I wasn’t able to fully maximize this package. I also felt like some of the euro equivalents per item were a little overinflated. The tour guides while fantastic, were little more than there to shepherd us there to sites and drop us off to explore on our own (Dolmabahçe Palace and grand bazaar just to name a couple). I would probably recommend the museum pass next time or purchase a fully guided tour to knock out all the main sites of Istanbul.
Everything was great until the point when the bus broke down and we were waiting for 3+hrs to get a replacement. When we finally got one they dropped us one stop before the end of the trip for the day. It was late and cold and we had to walk.
I always find the hop-on hop-off a great way to get to know a city. Unfortunately there was a lot of repetitive music and we almost missed one of the buses due to a change in their published times but overall it was good.
Great option to save money, organise your holiday is istanbul. Will recommend the 5 day pass if you would want to explore the city... Will definitely but it again.
Worth taking the Tourist Pass if you intend to roam intensively through Istanbul. The guides provided were punctual and gave good tours of the sites.
