C1 ( 2013 ) The place was located beside river and had beautiful view. The view was excellent from day to night with sunset. All was excellent to us, atmosphere, view, wind, etc. Must visit place, I think.

Great view of the city. Long drive bit tedious. Nothing more than the view. Crowded. A bit disappointing

Making your way here is pretty rewarding, being that it offers an unparalleled view of the golden horn. Perfect for an evening activity when most other attractions are closed. I made my way to the cable car by a bus from emminonu pier.

Close to Sultan Ayup area (walking distance), ride the cable cars to the top and enjoy the views, its a short ride but worth it, the whole area is surrounded by a cemetery so be sure to be comfortable by that.

The machine where you buy the ticket for the cable car is very confusing. You can buy only 1 card then top it up and use. We paid 10 TKL and got a card and enough credit for 3 people to use the cable car....More

For public transport Istanbulkart is the way to go. You can use the same card to catch a cable car ride. Make sure you have enough money on it as cable car ride is more expensive.
