"be careful with taxi drivers" Istanbul Tourist Trap Tip by angelochka

Istanbul Tourist Traps: 151 reviews and 96 photos


as i heard after that happened to me..it happens often to tourists..especially when you are looking distracted or tired..
after a drive when you are giving money to a taxi driver, he's taking it and after says to you you gave to him the wrong bill...at that moment you usually cant remember exactly which bill you gave to him or you have doubts.. so driver is giving "your bill" back to you (of course lesser amount of money, he changed bills) and you give to him another "right bill" that time looking carefully and paying much more attention to it...BUT IT'S TOO LATE:((

Fun Alternatives: just be more careful..

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
