Meeting location: In your hotel lobby, cruise ship port or any other suitable place for you. If you are coming with cruise ship according to the ship name I would find out which terminal it would arrive and dock before you arrive and would wait for you in the passenger exit with your name signed on board. If you are staying in a private house or a long distance from the city center then we would arrange the most central place according to your location. There are 4 different centers I can meet you if you stay around Sultanahmet, Taksim area I come and pick you up from your hotel but if you are staying outside of those locations then I will meet one of the town centers depending on your location.
