Hi, this is the best website for any first time visitors to Istanbul. It will be our first time to Turkey and we are a family of 4 arriving in Mid April, we will be in Istanbul for only 3 full days. I would like to know if it’s worth going up the cable car in Istanbul and if yes can we do it on our own or should we take a half day tour covering the Bosphorous and cable car.
Next question please, because our time in Istanbul is very limited and my wife is not in the best of health meaning she wouldn’t be able to walk around very quickly can you please give us a rough idea how long each attraction will take. We plan to cover as much as we can but I have no idea how long will each place take.
After reading your article I would like my wife to try the traditional Turkish Bath and Massage, as we will be staying in Sultanahmet area so I was looking for Ayasofya Harram Sultan which you recommended, what time do these places usually close at night and where is it exactly located.
I will also be booking the whirling dervishes dance online and few more things online, I would like to know if there is anyway that you can benefit if I book anything online. Because you have given so much knowledge and advice I want to return you something in anyway possible.
I will also recommend your website to any friends or relatives who are planning a trip to Istanbul.
Thank you so much.

Thanks a lot for your nice words. Before I answer your questions, would you mind telling your kids ages? Also, you mention that your wife can not walk quickly, but can she walk at her own pace for a full day or should we included as many resting points as possible?

My boys are grown up, they are in their early twenties. As for my wife she can go on for full day but I always carry a lightweight folded chair when we go for trips. Whenever she is tired she just needs 10-15 minutes of rest after an hour or so and she can go on for full day but at a slow pace. Thanks
