Hello, locals and guests of Istanbul. I am coming in the middle of August for several days, and need a transfer from an airport to a hotel. Could you, please, advice some cheap taxi and give the phone number of the taxi service I can order a car? And what the avarage price for the ride from Ataturk aiprort to Fatih, that I could plan my budget?)) Thank you in advance.

Uber is 100 TL (850 UAH) to the city anywhere.

Airport taxi or Bitaksi App would be about 60 TL (500 UAH) to Taksim square, a bit less to Sultanahmet Old Town. All taxis have meter and only single tariff, so they cannot really cheat yopu as long as they open the meter.

Havataş shuttle bus to Taksim square (with luggage space, 11 TL-100 UAH).

Subway to Old Town single ticket 4 TL (35 UAH). Istanbul Card, 6 TL deposit, 2.30 TL (20 UAH) for first ride, 1.65 TL for the next ride in 2 hours.

If you have any questions let me know.

Try the app called "Bitaksi". I'm not sure if they are allowed to go into the airport, but that's what we usually use in order to travel with a taxi whose id we know. If they can't pick you up from the airport, you'll have to use one of the airport taxis.

Hi to everyone. I'll be soon in Istanbul for 3 days.(20/07- 23/07) Can you advise what I can visit there, I mean some imteresning places not for tourists. It will be great if somebody could show them )

Onur Demir , Istanbul, TUR, about 2 months ago

maiden's tower(not really necessary to go nearby, view of it's more beautiful from the uskudar than going nearby with a boat) , galata tower(midday and clear day to enjoy the view more) and pierre loti hill (before the sunset so you could watch the sunset and enjoy the view when the weather goes dark) . Topkapi palace for sure, Buyukvalidehan and the roof of the restaurants around fatih . These places are the best places to enjoy two continents meet eachother with a bosphorus.

This is for people that already speak Spanish to at least a basic conversational level. It's a chatting group, so please no complete beginners because I'm not going to be able to teach from scratch. This is only a conversational/practice group.

Try no to be late, if you are, give me a call to know where we are and you can catch up! :o)
If anyone else is going to the meeting for sure and you don't mind writing your number here for others; Thanks!

Hi Everyone.

So I want to spend a full day exploring the art galleries in Istanbul, plan on doing this the 1st July (Friday) - I checked out http://www.beyoglusanatgalerisi.com but it is mostly in Turkish and some links of art galleries do not work. The type of art I am into is the ones on galerinevistanbul.com - Pretty perfect! Does anyone here know of similar art galleries to this one? In/around Beyoglu?

I like thought provoking art, not just landscapes and aesthetically pleasing pictures. Also include museums on this day, so the museum of modern art is already on the itinerary!

Advice would be appreciated! And if anyone wants to join on the art-walk/exploring, and is available the 1st July, let me know.
