Sahar, You can not pay to the driver. But you can buy a single ticket at Taksim (4.00 TL) and use it for the bus. If you use an Istanbulkart, the fare is 2.15 TL.

good luck,

Amada85, there is a dedicated bus that goes to all of those places and more which leaves from Eminonu pier that is the 1453 MİNİATÜRK-PANORAMA 1453, here is the route and all the stops it goes by


This bus is useful as it goes by many of Istanbul's landmarks such as MİNİATÜRK, AYNALIKAVAK palace, EYÜP/Pierre Loti, Panorama1453 & Chora museum, Yedikule fortress etc

To go to Ortakoy take thefunicular from Taksim to Kabatas and then take the 25E bus or alternatively you can walk following this route http://goo.gl/maps/SIbhT and then walk or take the bus back.
