No one was there to guide us the process. Infact the guide wasn’t there at blue mosque. I was charged for ticket but i got to know that entry to mosque is free.

The time was for 9.30am and arrive 10 mins early. There was no one there. I waited till 10.15. Then the guid arrived. Instead of the guid walking us through, he stood in one spot and showed us pictures on his phone. It would have been quicker and better if I bought my ticket there.

Everything was well organized, the guide was waiting at the meeting point right on time. Look for the flag with the Tiqets logo, do not go early, as many other tours are meeting there too, it can be confusing. Our guide Oz was excellent, very knowledgeable, the tour was about 30 minutes, we could stay as long as we wanted after. I highly recommend this tour, the Basilica Cistern is an amazing place.
