Airport transfer package is problematic. You need to wait until the taxi fills with at least 5 people. After I waited an hour with no one arriving I got upset and made a few calls. Eventually they took me alone. The people at the taxi office were very nice, but the "system" is very unreliable. You might wait 5 minutes, or you might wait over an hour. Special thanks to Yusuf for always being available and trying to help. Hagia Sofia tour guide was very nice.

It was good for the price; However, the tourist agency made me wait for more than 1/2 hour to take me to take the minivan, they just had to accompany me to the subway and nothing else.
