Tips and tricks

  • If you are interested in the historical sights of Istanbul, choose hotels situated in the Fatih district. 
  • The Beyoglu district is suitable for travelers who prefer a European atmosphere. Just make sure the windows do not overlook a noisy street. 
  • Before visiting the attractions and mosques, check the working hours: many of them are closed during prayer time.
  • The perfect time for shopping is between late July and mid-August, when stores change their collections. 
  • Most small shops do not work on Sundays, and on weekdays they are closed for lunch from 1 PM to 2 PM.
  • When going to local markets, prepare some cash (Turkish lira). Don’t make purchases using dollars or euros: the prices will be much higher. 
  • You can change money at a favorable rate at Taksim Square and Beyazıt Square.
  • Do not buy Turkish delight at spontaneous markets or supermarkets. Visit specialized shops that sell sweets with an original taste.

Reviews

Audrey
It's convenient to travel with family in such a way, especially with kids. It was a little cold in the car as the air conditioning was on. but as soon as we said about that, the driver turned it off. We made a few unplanned stops to take pictures of incredibly beautiful streets of Istanbul. If you come to this city, be sure to try sesame buns!

We had a layover in Istanbul, so I decided to arrange a little trip in order to show my husband this lovely city. After that, we managed to catch a flight. It’s great that travelers don't have to stay at the airport anymore!
Travis
We were met on time - the driver wasn't late. He offered us drinking water and it was just what we need in such a heat. The driver is definitely very experienced: he shared some engaging stories about the city.
Lily
It’s a pity we didn't have enough time to walk around Grand Bazaar as we had to go to Marmaris. The car was quite comfortable and spacious. My mom liked everything as well, although she is a true homebody. At the advice of the driver, we tried tasty desserts in one of the local cafés
