6 days in June/July 2018 in Istanbul first time advise pleas

Hi travellers

My mom (on wheelchair), my sister, myself and my daughter booked our stay in World Heritage Hotel Istanbul, in Sultanahmet area.

I have made a full on itinerary to see the top best places while there.

Questions I have:

1. How easy will it be to get around on a wheelchair in Sultanahmet area?

2. What will be the best transportation around Istanbul for four of us?

3. We are buying museum kart, so how easy will it be to buy in Istanbul (vs buying online and getting them delivered to my hotel)?

Thanks so much in advance

Regards

Gulina

Gulina, I just purchased Museum Pass online and already arrived in my hotel within 1 week. Please check with your hotel first whether the Museum Pass can be delivered to the hotel before your arrival.

Hi Erhan

Thanks for your suggestion. I will buy the istanbulkart at the airport on arrival.

Museums will have a queue for purchasing a museum card, am I right?

The idea is to avoid any queue with my old mom and stay away from the heat. If u think it’s easy to purchase at the first museum we visit, then I might wait until we arrive, then purchase.

Hi

Thanks for your reply. I texted my hotel on whatsapp asking whether it’s ok to get the cards delivered but no response. I will try messaging via booking.

Cheers

Gulina
