The directions for where to meet the guide were incorrect. Specifically there was no guide within 20 m of the entrance to Hagia Sophia it was substantially farther than that. Because of that factThat we were early to the designated site per Viator we were six minutes late to the actual site and the tour had left prior to our arrival. Please refund us

The place is awesome! Fulled of history. Parts were in restoration. Our guide was great and the tour started right on time! Skip the line was good too.
