The easiest way to save your time is hiring a car with driver who knows the city well and take you directly to the places you want. As you will drive within or around the city, renting a car may not be a good idea, since you will probably struggle a lot to find your way in the rush traffic of Istanbul, mostly cut with one way streets and also having limited parking places. Moreover, the rent a car costs in Istanbul may disappoint you due to high gasoline costs and taxes. 

We offer an excellent service for who need to tour in Istanbul freely on their own within a limited time but wish to keep their comfort and money. We hire you a private air-conditioned van driven with a gentle and experienced driver to take you to all the places you want.
