  • From the show perspective it was amazing.

  • We did the shorter show. It is enough. We enjoyed the performance.

  • The theatre is very beautiful and the show transports you!

  • The show was interesting but it was pretty clear that the 3 Whirling Darvechs did not have their heart in the performance. They looked extremely bored and were just going through the motions of the 3 dances that they performed, which was unfortunate because it is really an interesting story.

    The theater was very nice and the seating intimate. Even though the website said the seating for the 1 hour show would not be reserved, each of us had pre-assigned seats.

  • Wonderful!. The lights and projections added to what was an incredibly special experience. Lovely venue, easily located. Would definitely recommend.

  • The experience went exactly as was described and as I expected. While I personally enjoyed it as a cultural experience, others in my group were quite bored, especially my 14 year old granddaughter..

  • Front row tickets.Convenient to book through Viator. Show was ok.

  • It was a very interesting and beautiful experience. We collected our tickets from the ticket counter in Hodjapasha theatre. We got fantastic seats. Theater was easy to find - it is clearly visible from the main street just before the Koska sweets shop if you approach from Sultanahmet.
    Come at least 20 minutes in advance as there is a queue to get inside which moves fast and you get free refreshments as well.

  • Very good
