      Guide in Ephesus

      Do you have names of good guides? I will be arriving on an cruise ship and would like to find a private or very small group guide to avoid the crowds.

    • Istanbul Attractions Near the Ataturk Airport

      Istanbul Dec 25, 2016 at 10:01 PM

      Hello everyone,

      I have a pretty big gap between flights at Ataturk airport. I arrive about 18:00 on Fri Dec30 and leave about 13:00 on Sat Dec31. I do not need to have a visa to leave the airport, so I would like to explore the city a bit. What attractions should I visit and until what time is it safe to be in the street? I am planning to spend an evening/night in the city, go back to the airport for the night, and then visit this ( city tour. What do you think about this plan? How heavy is the traffic going to be these days? Keep in mind that I am 17 and I am not ready to spend money on hotels or taxis.

      Thank you for the information,

      Hi there everyone.
      I am a single female traveller. I am planning to visit Datça this Friday and stay for 3-4 days. I am aware that this is now the low season for tourism and the hotel prices should decrease also. However I have noticed on several hotel booking websites that the hotel prices per night in Datça are still very high. However, I have experienced in other tourist hotels along the coast that the internet price is often waivered by the hotel staff and I have paid half to one-third of the quoted internet price.

      I am not sure if this can also be done in Datça. Rather than booking a hotel room online, is it possible to ask the hotel managers in person (once I arrive in Datça) for a discount? If this is possible, can you please advise me on what discount percentage of the quoted internet price would be reasonable to ask for? For example, if a hotel in Datça is charging 80TL per night for a room, is it reasonable to ask for a discount of 50% or more?

      Any advice will be most greatly appreciated!

      We prefer to stay in smaller hotels and pensions to experience the 'real Turkey'. Any recommendations around Datca? Thanks
