Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Our timing was perfect on a Friday afternoon to get into the Cistern without a line. Apparently if you are with a tour guide, they can skip to the front and bypass the online tickets and standard line. All I could think of was Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets when we first entered. But there is so much history regarding the columns and their origins that is amazing. Having someone who can weave the story makes the trip even more magical. They have a lightning and thunder show but it was not working while we were there. But there were art installations that were very eye catching in the water. Be sure and check out the dig sit as you leave the cistern for an idea of how they excavated and also how the water was pumped out of the cistern.

    This extraordinary mosque is situated on top of one of the hills of Turkiye. IT is quite the climes but well worth the effort as it is beautiful and has a delightful park which has spectacular views across the water.The architecture is exceptional and the complex well maintained. Be sure to have a meal at Ali Baba’s in the street behind the mosque.

    The Blue Mosque is very close to Hagia Sophia, across the well cultivated gardens. The courtyard is huge and cool. Inside are stunning ceilings and walls.

    There are historical mosques, eateries, gift stores, and more in this region, which is the most popular with travelers. Here, the day may be simply passed.

    Visited this old town with lots of touristy shops and restaurants. There's an old harbour that dates back to Roman times with loads of boats docked offering tours.

    The sellers can be very vigorous at trying to get you to buy. My husband who's not even a herbal tea drinker ended up buying 400g of loose lemon zaffron tea at £25 gbp. 😅 But the best bit was we ended up buying a small rug at £330 gbp. Now we still dont know how we are going to take it home. 😆

    Overall an enjoyable day trip. Cost of taxi from Akra Hotel was 200 Lira each way.

    We went to the palace because it was recommended to us by friends and it was stunning.
    It is a beautiful building and the garden is a delight for the eyes.
    However, entry is a little expensive and you are not allowed to take photos inside the palace.
    Overall still, I would highly recommend paying it a visit.

    Wonderful views of Istanbul from this ancient tower, the view from the upper levels is superb and show you just how vast the city is. If you go early in the morning (we went about 9 am) there was no queue at all. Well worth a visit.

    The place itself is of course amazing, a firm 5. This is just to warn fellow travelers that the 480 TL tickets sold at the entrance do not give access to the whole museum. They singled out the Dark Church (presumably the top attraction) and to enter it you have to pay an extra 130 liras, which feels a bit tricky and unfair (they should at least warn about that when selling the tickets). Many places were also closed for entry for various reasons.

    It can also be reached with an easy walk from the promenade. It offers a beautiful view both during the day and at night.

    This is a mind blowing attraction. The distinctive geological ‘chimneys’ have been hollowed out and turned into communities for monks and nuns many hundreds of years ago. The medieval paintings of the churches carved out of the rock are spectacular. Well worth the climb from the car park.

    While visit to the castle is good wanted to share a bit about the area around. Bodrum has a different feel than the other Greek Islands in the region. You can feel the difference between Greece and Turkey!
    Seems a lot of people come here for buying cheap (fake) brands and that's what you'd see in the market area. There are nice cafes & bars. Overall very touristy vibes and a good vacation destination.

    Beautiful place to walk around, was there in mid day and didn’t really come across anyone else which was perfect as i could take my time exploring through all the ruins and imagining what it would of been like back then. Paid 100 lira to get in so was worth its money.
