Topkapi not included in Istanbul tour?

Just double-checking this, but it looks like the main site I was interested in — Topkapi — isn’t included in Rick’s The Best of Istanbul tour. I’ll make plans to tour it on my own if that’s the case. But can any previous tour members confirm this? Thanks!

It was included when we went a few years ago.
Looks like it’s still included or at least you can use the included museum pass to visit on your own.

You'll get at least 24 group sightseeing events — at no extra cost!

Thanks for the quick response! But I was referring to the 7-day Best of Istanbul Tour, rather than the full country tour:)

I looked at the Best of Istanbul tour and Topkapi Palace is included on Day 2.
