As a female arriving in the dead of night, I just wanted some safe transport to my hotel. I got that it’s so much more with that taxi. honestly I felt like I was writing like a Rockstar. This is more comfortable than any damn vehicle I have ever been in! The seats are at the right hi there the right comfort level I can only lived in that van it was amazing! The driver was so courteous, he just want to make sure that I was ok and I felt safe. I don’t think the guy who owns the company falls asleep ever! there was somebody in contact with me all night. From the time I got off the plane to the time that I got my hotel. He was even in contact with me afterward.
I chose Fat Taxi based on reviews seen on TripAdvisor and I can truthfully say that their 5 stars are fully deserved. Everything was perfect right from booking till the very end. They were always on time for collection and drop off. This was a private (not shared with anyone else) and their price was cheaper than anyone else out there! Communication was easy over WhatsApp which also made finding them outside airport arrivals a breeze (not to mention the sign with my name on!).
The companies employees go above and beyond to deliver excellent service! The drivers are very polite and professional. The prices are the lowest that I found for private taxi in Istanbul and trust me I have done an extensive research looking for the best deal. The owner was in constant communication to ensure that the service is timely. He was the only person that I had contact in the city and he was very helpful to advise so much useful info for the trip (places to see, restaurants to order food from, etc etc.)and even checked how my return flight was. Absolutely the best prices, great service and communication! Highly recommend!
My wife and I traveled to Istanbul for the first time in November. We were a little intimidated, having not been there, and during Covid. It was great to exit the terminal, and immediately see the sign for our transportation. We waited only 1-2 minutes and very spacious limo van pulled up. They took our luggage for us, we got it and next thing you know we where at our hotel. After a long flight, it was great to have the extra space and some bottles of water on the short trip to the city. The vehicle was very clean, driver was kind, and everyone had a mask on from start to finish. We experienced the same professionalism on the return journey to the airport once our trip was complete.
