Istanbul – Entrance and Tour Fees

Tour Fees

Two most recommended tour agencies by Lonely Planet are Plantours( ) and Senkron ( ( ) is recommended by Turkeytravelplanner.

A list of tour and its price is listed below. Tour price is normally tagged in Euro. You can pay by credit card but I found them charging with quite higher currency rate. It’s better to pay them with cash in Euro. Children below 2 are free, and below 7 years old is 30% discount. Istanbul tours fee include transportation (to/from in-city hotel), guide, entrance fees, meals as mentioned and VAT.
