We used Effendi/Backpackers for transport to and from Ataturk Airport and Sultanahmet in the centre of Istanbul on the 7th & 12th February 2013. Other than a slight delay at the airport while cars were sorted out everything went smoothly and to plan. The drivers were courteous & very skilled in the narrow streets, the vehicles spotless and new. We were even offered water and a cake on the first journey and had the people carrier to ourselves The manager at our hotel in a very narrow street in a warren in the old town was very impressed that they found the hotel first time and got us to the door. There was no haggling about the price and NO attempt at soliciting for a tip(although I gave one anyway I was so pleased). In summary the service was excellent and provided all that it claimed.
