Excellent and better than my expectation.

The ticket purchase and subsequent tour was great value for money. The guide was on time and spoke excellent English. The price we paid was significantly less than similar tour providers. The guests however, must arrive at the gate of the palace on time using their own means of transport (a plus for me). Few downsides worth mentioning, the maintenance work at the palace reduced the overall time spent inside it, since many rooms were closed. My ticket did not provide access to the Harem and the painting museum.

The palace was very good but the explanation for the visit was not famous. Our guide did not even warn us that, if we wanted to see Mustafa Kemal's apartments, we had to buy the ticket for the visit to the "Harem".
