All the best?
Everything was good/perfect. On time, good sign with my name on it, good car in my case a BMW 730. I will recomment KIWITAXI everyone!!!
Everything was great!!! We were lucky with the driver that met us on time at the airport, helped with luggage and drove fast to the hotel. During the road we learned a lot of useful thing about the city life. Highly recommended service!
I liked that the cabdriver offered Wi-Fi to me. It is very useful to get in touch with your family after arriving to Moscow if you haven’t got a Russian SIM card.
Hello, the service was excellent. The driver very kind and helpful. The possibility to pay in cash was very good as I do not have a credit card. I would definitively recommend Kiwitaxi to all of my friends and would choose it in any country where it operates. Thanks again

Service was excellent, driver was on time, courteous and very helpful in guiding/informing me about the city tourism, as well as ensuring I was safe & inside my hotel before departing. Certainly worth the money! very glad I decided to book with Kiwitaxi ahead of time. Will likely be using again for future travels, and would definitely recommend to others.

How to Get from Sultanahmet to Other Destinations 

Tourists usually wonder how to get from Sultanahmet, the area of Istanbul where the majority of Istanbul’s sights are situated, to the nearest airports. Istanbul Ataturk international (IST) is located about 20 km from Sultanahmet, and Sabiha Gokcen International is about 45 km from the city center. 

Taxi from Sultanahmet 

The price of a taxi from Sultanahmet to the nearest air hub is around 70 TL (14 euros), and to the second one costs around 125 TL (26 euros). However, it is not advisable to use a taxi in Istanbul. Some Turkish taxi drivers drive too fast, others go by a roundabout route, sometimes they do not turn on a taximeter and charge a sky-high fare.  

Transfer from Sultanahmet 

Some people like using taxi transfers for not worrying much about how to get to the airport in time. If you are among them, why not to book the Kiwitaxi transfer from Sultanahmet  in advance. The transfer driver will wait for you right outside the hotel in Sultanahmet or, in case it is allowed, near the reception desk.

The fare of a taxi transfer from Sultanahmet to Istanbul Ataturk in an economy class car is 20 euros, and transfer travel time is around 33 minutes. A transfer trip to Sabiha Gokcen hub will cost you 42 euros, to Taksim District, where the great amount of cheap bars and restaurants are situated, - 24 euros.  

Public transport from Sultanahmet 

Public transport is always the best option for budget travelers. The tram & metro journey from Sultanahmet to the nearest air hub will take around an hour and cost you around 10 TL (2 euros). Firstly, you will need to buy two tokens in the ticket machine. Then go on a tram to Zeytinburnu. Get out and ride the metro straight to the last stop.

Unfortunately, this plan would not work at night. Moreover, be careful of experienced pickpockets. Put a wallet and other valuable things in a safe place. The metro line construction connecting the Sultanahmet with the second air terminal has not finished yet. Therefore, travelers reach the Taksim Square where they take a Havabus to get to Sabiha Gokcen Terminals.
