"Taxis in Sultanahmet" Taxi Tip by AlperIst

Taxi, Istanbul: 23 reviews and 13 photos


Even all taxis have meters, thay have ways to cheat you, be careful. Especially in Sultanahmet it is almost impossible not to be cheated as a foreigner. It is so obviously bad that we the locals can't take a taxi in Sultanahmet. When they see you look Turkish, they simply deny to take you because they know they will not be able to overcharge. Few days ago I was there with a local friend and we really needed a taxi. We tried hard but it was not possible as usual, the passing ones and the waiting ones all denied us.

Enjoy your visit.
