help! Tour guide left me in the dark

Help! It is Sunday & I am Istanbul with no tour guide. The one I had contacted has no clue what I am talking about. Need a car for 2 days of private touring. Anyone know of a reliable, English speaking guide/driver that doesn't mind a last minute call? I would have to phone, since there is no time to wait around & do nothing. I have a partial handicap so it's not like I can just hop on the transportation system (I just don't "hop"). If you know of someone I can call late today, I would really be appreciative!

I am on someone else's laptop now, so I will read any replies that come in. (the hotel was unable to help me, also wanted 300 Euros for 3 hours? Anxiously awaiting --- you?

Hi DaWabbit: try the guys over at the Tur-Ista Agency at 16 Divan Yolu, 212 527 7085. They may be able to help you out. LemonLady
