Any combo tickets for Istanbul attractions?

Hello all

I understand that it is advisable to purchase tickets in advance for most attractions to avoid lengthy queues. Is muze.com.tr the best website for this? Are there any combination tickets that offer good value for multiple attractions, rather than buying individual tickets for each place? The attractions I am interested in are Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, Galata Tower and Basilica Cistern.

Thank you in advance!

Justagirl28, there is no such website. You can best use the "https://www.muze.gov.tr/buy_e_ticket" to buy tickets for the Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace, online. The others you can buy at the gate.

enigma, what about the 3 day museum ticket, isn't it valid for all these places? But I heard that you can't buy this ticket online, either at the attractions or at your hotel, is this right?

Thanks for your replies. I did a bit more research and uncovered the Museum Pass. It covers only museum-type attractions, so one would still need to buy additional tickets elsewhere, but seemed alright if one visits Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace and the Chora Church. The card doesn't seem to offer much value, but does offer convenience.

prish_12, museum pass will only include Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace. So if OP if only interested in these 2 attractions, he should buy Museum pass.

Tip for Hagia Sophia audio guide: The machine they give at 'Hagia Sophia' have 2 sockets for audio speaker. They give one set of speaker but you can use other socket for your headphones and 2 people can use that machine..

Museum Pass is too expensive (unless you visit all the museums on their list) and restrictive with time limits. Buy the individual tickets online.
