I saw the whirling dervishes on tv when I was young and when I decided to visit Istanbul I knew this was something I really wanted to do. The performance is set in a beautiful subterranean space aglow in soft blue lighting that also serves as a restaurant. Also, due to COVID, the restaurant is temporarily closed. The show itself is mesmerizing and I was amazed that the dancers could spin so fast and for so long while staying in one place. The music accompanying the dancer’s routine is quite beautiful. One thing I would have enjoyed is a bit of commentary before the performance on the history of the dervishes.
This was an evening that just got better and better. The food was OK but as ever you dont go on mass dinner events for the food only. The entertainment was varied and excellent especially the dancing manager . All the staff were efficient and friendly, and the hotel pickup/drop off is a great help to those not knowing Istanbul
Everything was great. We got picked up by a driver on time and he also returned us to hotel. Food was good, entertainment was excellent and the service was exceptional. We were lucky because the weather was very nice so it was an added bonus.
Нам очень понравилось. Лодка хорошая, красивые виды, классный гид с юмором, милые закуски. 2,5 часа пролетели незаметно. А последние минут 40 тура, когда солнце уже садилось над Старым Городом - это вообще восторг! Очень рекомендую
Turned out that we were the only ones to buy the tour that day and time. Guide was very clear and explained some interesting things about the city and Sophia in particular. Totally worth the money and time!
