All the best? Vujic Rejan
Our driver was exactly what we hoped and a little more: punctual, responsible trough out the entire duration of our trip, understanding and efficient, overall very proficient. Also, thanks to the support team who was very efficient with helping us locate our driver at the arrival ( it was our first time in Bulgaria and we were a little lost in translation). Thank you!

The taxi driver was very open to conversation, entertaining as well as instructive and took care into making the travel as pleasant as possible while driving through the outskirts of Hamburg. Furthermore, he took me right to my hotel door in front of the airport even when he didnt actually have to! A wonderful experience. 100% recommend. Ana Redon Herranz
In case of Corona the Taxi Service was running without any complications. The driver was very friendly and kind. Drove very smooth. And the price was incredible. Thank you for your help in this strange time with Corona to helped us come home as soon as possible. Sarah F.
The driver was there on time, even at bit earlier, he was very courteous, and he arrived in Dubai well ahead of time whilst always driving carefully and observing the speed limit. The car was spacious and clean. So, all in all it was a very positive experience. D. Fuehrer
The driver was on time. He was easy to find. He was very helpful with the bags both at pickup and the destination. He knew where he was going and the vehicle was more than adequate for 4 people. What more could we ask for, very pleasant experience overall. Diane Sandrejko

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. 

Useful Information 

Istanbul is an amazing but quite a dangerous city. If you stay in Sultanahmet district, all the best attractions will be in the walking distance from  you. This is an a very old part of the city with vast local markets, small long streets, and the grand mosque in the middle. The atmosphere of this place is magical. However, beware of robbers who have a lot of tactics there. Therefore, it is always better not to talk to strangers here at all.
