A taxi ride from the airport to Sultanahmet should cost approximately 15 YTL currently..Tom, please correct me if I'm wrong.

We did this both ways recently from the airport to Side Pension in Sultanahmet and back and it worked out at about 22NTL each time.

Unlike last year when the driver tried to pull a fast one and had the meter running on night rate. I watched it and then asked him to change it when it had reached 35 lira. As there was then no way of knowing what the correct fare was I gave him a 20 note when we reached the airport - no protests!
