we are reaching the end of our long weekend in amazing Istanbul and starting to plan our route back to the airport tomorrow, I have a few quite specific questions.
We arrived by Havatas via Kadikoy, ferry and tram to Sultanamet and really enjoyed it. We would like to use this route back out to SAW. Can anyone confirm how long this would take and the right ferry/bus times to catch for connections, we fly at 21:00 so assume we need to be at the airport by 19:00 to check in etc.
Does the ferry from Eminonu to Kadikoy leave from where it dropped us off (by the fried fish boats after passing under the bridge) or the piers before the bridge?
Where do I find the Havantas bus at Kadikoy. It dropped off right in front of the ferry. Is this where they pick up?
finally, it is likely we will have a little credit left on our Istanbulcart. Can we use this in part payment for havantas?
Thank you hugely to any help which can be given. It is so helpful and I will endeavour to write a trip report on our return :)
