    Booked one way transfer service from new Istanbul AirPort to center Istanbul (Sulthanamet). Upon arrival at the airport and following all instructions, no one was aware of our transfer tickets. So we were forced to take public transport to our hotel. Upon arrival at the hotel, I was immediately approached via whatsapp by the representative of “Istanbul Welcome card” with apologies about misunderstanding at the airport. A compensation proposal was also made immediately (tour Hagia Sophia). At my request, the compensation has been changed to the transfer back to the airport. This transfer went perfectly. Picked up from hotel in plenty of time by friendly driver and transport with very luxurious minibus. In short: despite the misunderstanding on the outward journey, we are very satisfied with the handling of this, thanks to Semih Aytaç who helped us very well. I therefore dare to recommend the offered transfer service and would book again next time.

    flew in at 18-45, found a rack quickly and then an hour just waited for anyone else to come. as a result, no one else came to the transfer, I started from the airport at 20-15, I was the only passenger. everything seems to be ok, but you always want to be in the city as quickly as possible, but here they waited aimlessly for more than an hour

    Not easy to navigate at IST airport to find the shuttle which however is comfortable and inexpensive but we had to add a taxi to finish our journey
