RS Turkey Tour Time at Hagia Sophia

Hi there! For anyone who has been on this tour, did you feel your time with the tour at Hagia Sophia in Istanbul was enough time or would you recommend some time on your own if you, like me, like to take your time? Thanks!

I felt we had sufficient time with our tour guide in the Hagia Sophia. We were able to explore for a few minutes on our own after his comments. It is very close to the tour hotel in the Sultanahmet, I assume that is where you will stay as we did. If you arrive early for the tour, you will be able to go in to see the Mosque. You likely would need tickets, I'm not sure about this. You might want to research or call the RS office.

While I haven't been on this tour, I can only say that we spent several hours at Hagia Sophia as there was so much to see. Those mosaics! So you'll have to see. Have a wonderful time!

I was on this tour a few years ago and felt we spent sufficient time at the Hagia Sophia. Enjoy!
