Efendi travel was always quick and professional in their email response to me as I planned the trip. They listened to what I was saying and they came up with a plan to show our team the most of Istanbul. They were willing to accommodate any changes we wanted. They were going to pick us up at the airport with a sign, take us to our hotel, pick us up later for the tour, pick us up the next day for another tour, and then return us to the airport.
We booked transfers for our group of 20 people and city tour. Managers were responding all questions immediately by email, prices for services was cheap. Drivers were ontime at the airport and hotel, buses are new and very comfortable, guide was very good. Totally 5* VIP service. Highly recommend it to everybody.
We chose Efendi Travel (Tours) in a round about way via TripAdvisor due to all the great reviews, but actually through an entirely different organization. We were not steered wrong. Although this was not a lengthy nor difficult job, we were pleased that they were friendly and professional. This was an airport transfer from the airport to our hotel in the Beyoglu area in Istanbul. We were traveling through Turkey for 3+ weeks and didn't want to deal with heavy luggage and transfers on busy public transportation. Efendi travel came through with no problems.
I used Efendi services 2x on a recent trip to Istanbul and was very pleased with the prompt email follow up confirmations and on time pickups. In the most recent case, Turkish Airlines permitted changing arrival airport from SAW to IST--and Efendi was able to accommodate the new pickup location with only 60 minutes of advance notice.
I had a great time with Efendi Travel, I booked their service via emails before I travelled to Istanbul. They are very helpful, friendly and cooperative. The company offering great customer service and the taxi driver was prompt, professional, polite and the cab was clean.
Backpackers Travel’s airport transfer shuttle bus can take you to and from any address in Istanbul. In my case, it came to my private address on the Asian side of Istanbul, but it can also come to your hotel or hostel of course.
We have now travelled to Istanbul twice, once for a long four night weekend and the second time for a one night stopover en route to Africa. On both occasions we have used the service provided by Backpackers Travel for our transfer to and from Ataturk Airport and we have been very impressed by their service.
We’ve just got back from our trip to Istanbul and wanted to write to say how impressed we were by your transfer service that we used from Ataturk Airport to the Holiday Inn Istanbul City, and back. We arrived on February 25th and returned on February 28th.

Dear Ahmet Bey: We were extremely pleased with your airport transfer service, which we both felt was most impressive.
