Coming up to the Karakoy seaport from the sea, you are greeted with a site which the seafarers to Istanbul have been seeing for centuries past. Indeed, this ancient port for trading has been active since days long past and offers one of the best views of the overall city from any angle. Undoubtedly, the very first thing you notice here is the Galata Tower. In the old days, this used to house the foreign citizens of the city and you heart suddenly wishes that you were able to live up there. Even though that wish cannot be fulfilled, at Istanbul Chauffeur, we try our best to offer you the next best thing fit for royalties- your own personalized luxury transportation. If it be your wish we can also help you find that perfect place to stay as well, so that you find exactly what you want after you have looked at what there is on offer.
Karakoy district- the central hub
The very first thing you notice after stepping off your ship onto the port is the hustle of the place. That is quite common considering the fact that the place has been the residence of people from the time when Ottomans used to rule the city. Ancient families of Jews, Greeks and Armenians still live there and considering the fact that it is still one of the major functioning trade ports of the continents, you soon begin to understand that the bustle is there to stay.
You have not been to Istanbul if you have not been lost in the back alleys of this place at least once. From the eateries there to the tram routes to the intersecting roads, everything here seems to have been transported from times long forgotten. While being there, do try out the local sweet shops. You might be delightfully surprised to find some real delicacies that you would be hard pressed to find elsewhere.
