Please make sure that you get an audio guide. The guide is only allowed into the exhibition if at least 15 people are participating. I only had 13 registered. Then there is an introduction in front of the palace and on the ground floor at the first station and then you have to go on alone. The introduction to my tour was very good, the lady spoke very good, understandable English and was able to answer all questions. My tour also included entry to the harem and art museum. We needed 4 hours for the palace and harem and then we were no longer in the art museum. Unfortunately, since this was our last day, we couldn't make up for the visit. The tickets would have been valid for another week. It is currently not possible to visit all rooms and outdoor areas due to renovation work.

Our guide was terrific. He was well educated and spoke clearly, telling us just the right amount of detail and history to help us appreciate what we were seeing. He was receptive to questions, friendly and fun. We could have toured the palace on our own, but I believe we had a much richer experience there because of this guide.

So everything was as agreed. Guide was very nice and tried to explain everything :) security Queue wasn't that bad, of course there were a lot of people there but that's "normal" great

amazing my guide was professional explained everything had a smile always. inside the palace is breathtaking every room every detail and the audio explaining the history is just amazing.

I was alone with the guide and was able to fully benefit. Was really impressive and the explanations very helpful.
