"Taksim to Laleli at night" Dolmus Tip by AlperIst

Dolmus, Istanbul: 6 reviews and 5 photos


You can take the round-the-clock "dolmush" shared big yellow taxi-van (Taksim-Topkapi line) and drop at Aksaray at the corner and walk a little back to the street left.

Taxi costs around 10 Lira for your distance. But Taksim and old city are the most possible places to be overcharged for tourists. Your risk to be overcharged is over 50%. I sent many friends late at night from Beyoglu/Taksim to their hotel in old city and always listened the stories next day; too much driving around, giving fake change etc. Before getting into the taxi, show your address and one 10TL banknote, if he agress with his head, go.

Best wishes
