I understand that tipping in Istanbul is expected but on a much more modest scale compared to that in the USA.
I read that people typically don't tip taxis and that rounding up would be sufficient. Our hotel is giving us a free airport transfer so we're wondering, what would be an acceptable tip to give the driver for this free service? Also, if we're staying at a mid range hotel, what should we give the hotel staff at the end of the stay per night if the service is satisfactory? I'm assuming we would just give the total tip to whoever is at the front desk when we leave and hope that they distribute it?? Thanks
