If you have a layover at the airport, you must wait for long layovers. If you want to evaluate your time by seeing Istanbul. I can help you escape from the airport for a couple hours. I can meet you at the airport and we take a cab to come to the Old City of Istanbul and you can have a great time to seeing Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Cistern and Grand Bazaar. If your time is limited it is not possible to make all these places but you can do some of them. Having layover sounds little boring but when you have such a nice opportunity to escape from the airport for a couple hours and explore Istanbul then it sounds great. Istanbul is a city that everybody has to see once in their life.

Safiye was the best guide I ever had. She worked with my odd schedule and the weird timing of my layover. I thought I had a free hotel from the Turkish Airlines, but apparently, I didn't satisfy a condition. I texted Safiye with my lodging problems and by the time I got to the city centre she found me the perfect place to stay matching my requirements(just a room for the night). Furthermore, I wanted to visit a local restaurant and she helped me find it and got my reservation sorted out. Best trip EVER.
