I booked this at the last minute. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the group tours operated throughout the day were restricted with numbers so I went for a private tour and glad I did. Not cheap but learnt so much in the one and a half hours. Very interesting and not rushed.

Our tour in Topkapi was detailed and exhaustive, we had lots of historical information and anecdotes by our guide. It is important not to get distracted by sorrounding people as the site is usually very crowded.

The gardens, the buildings and the church are imposing, but unfortunately you can only see the buildings from outside. For the entrance fee you do not see a lot and if you wish to visit the harem rooms, you have to pay additionally.
