Frequently Asked Questions
General questions about our Time Travel VR Tour.
What is Time Travel VR Tour?
Time Travel VR Tour project is a virtual reality experience that allows customers to travel back in time to different historical events and locations.
Time Travel VR Tour is a project that offers innovative tourism services using VR technology.
For now, we interpret the art and architectural structures from Byzantine and Ottoman civilizations in the Istanbul geography with an objective perspective and a contemporary understanding of sciences. This is forming the base of our virtual environment. We are sharing this virtual experience as a part of our guided city tours through the city.
This time we’re not only listening to the information about an era, but we’re trying to look at it as a witness and we’re opening our minds to the discovery of a whole new story.
How is Time Travel VR Tour different from a conventional guided tour?
Time Travel VR Tour is a completely new experience, because the VR moments locate the visitors at the center of a 360° historic scene. With VR glasses you can see and hear the ancient worlds and choose where to look at, what to discover.
In addition to any VR experience, Time Travel VR presents this experience at the same spot so that your urban tour has a whole new layer.
Is Time Travel VR Tour for everyone?
Time Travel VR Tour is for everyone.
Guided city tours are not only for short time visitors, but for everyone including Istanbulites!
How much do you know about your city? Even though you know a lot about history, Time Travel VR Tour provides a completely new perception of historic places. Now you can compare old and new, past and today with your own eyes and ears.
How many stops are there in total for the guided Istanbul tour?
Time Travel VR Tour Istanbul has 5 stops and 7 VR scenes in total. Topkapı Palace and Sultanahmet have two separate scenes which our guests can experience.
Istanbul is a city with multiple historic layers. In some spots there are stories to tell from the Ottoman Period and Byzantine times with centuries apart.
You can jump into a 360° historic scene, find yourself in a scene from the 4th or 16th century and come back to today’s Istanbul.
Who can join Time Travel VR Tours?
In general, everyone above the age 8. If you can join a guided city tour, you can join us.
Normally we are not expecting motion sickness, since the time our guests can move freely and use the VR glasses in divided periods instead of sitting in a closed room and watching the video for a long time.
There is only an exception regarding photosensitive epilepsy. VR experience might be a trigger for seizures. We are sorry for this unfortunate possibility.
You can use our VR glasses with your regular glasses on and feel comfortable knowing our VR glasses are sterilised before each tour.
