If you wish to visit these 5 places with guidance "the best choice". Otherwise you can have the Museum Card which is obtained by government.

Nice idea. In my country there is not any pass like this. We get one to visit the places. In one tour it was just a little bit crowded. But the guide covered people well.

We had a nice plan to visit all 5 attractions but unfortunately we could go only Saint Sophia. When we contact them they refund the calculated amount. Nice job done with heart.
