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.

Very nice, interesting and informative tour our Gide Cetin is very knowledgeable and passionate about his job, he explained to us the history of Topkapı palace in a very interesting way, we felt we were watching a movie! Highly recommended!

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!

Atmosfere on the boat was excellent - our hard working hosts did their best to make this trip unforgetable! Great food and drinks offered free of charge

Wonderful experience. Knowledgable and friendly guide. Even gave us a lift into the centre of Istanbul after the cruise at no extra cost. 10/10.
