As a division of the Fatih Seyahat company (which includes renowned Backpackers Travel for budget-to-moderate travel), Efendi Travel has decades of experience in Turkish tourism and has relationships with correspondent agencies throughout Turkey and the eastern Mediterranean.

Efendi Travel's office is on Akbıyık Caddesi (map), just a block from the Four Seasons Hotel at Sultanahmet, in the very heart of Sultanahmet's hotel, restaurant, and café district.

Your trip to Turkey should start with Efendi Travel's excellent airport transfer service providing great comfort and convenience in Mercedes-Benz vehicles at a cost little more than a standard taxi—and a lot more safety. The service also operates to and from Istanbul's Karaköy Yolcu Salonu and Salıpazar cruise ship docks, where taxi hassle is even more of a concern. More...

Mr Tahsin Ünsal, Manager

Efendi Travel offers moderate to luxury hotels, private and small group tours of Istanbul (from luxury to budget class), tours throughout Turkey, gulet yacht cruises, Greek Islands cruises, Jewish and Christian heritage tours, and winter ski packages to Turkish mountain resorts.

Istanbul Tours

A favorite budget-priced tour is their Old Istanbul Walking Tour to show you the prime sights. They offer a good Süleymaniye Mosque, Chora Church & Golden Horn tour that makes it easy to get to some difficult-to-find places.

Private Driver-Guide Tours

Driving and guiding are different professions in Turkey, with different licenses. It's unusual to find Driver-Guides licensed to do both, but Efendi has found them, and they can save you money on private tours as you won't have to hire two professionals and pay their travel expenses. More...

Turkey Tours

Efendi offers a variety of guided tours for all parts of Turkey. Favorites are their 8 Day/7 Night tours of Turkey's top destinations in all budget ranges. More...

If you want a highly competent, experienced Istanbul travel agency to pick you up at the airport or cruise ship dock, help you to plan your itinerary within and beyond Istanbul, rent a car, arrange high-quality hotel accommodations in Istanbul, Cappadocia, Ephesus, Mediterranean resorts and other destinations, and any other travel agency service, you should consider Efendi Travel. They're good on personal service, attention, and follow-through.

When you contact Efendi Travel, don't forget to mention TTP. Here's why.
