Arrived in Instanbul on Tuesday and during transfer from the airport to hotel, a local travel agency representative gave us our written itinerary for the next several days. We were scheduled for a full day tour of the Old City on Wednesday, with a 9:00am pick up time at our hotel. We were having breakfast about 8:20 am and an individual from She Tour came to the dining room to inform us we were late; actually, we had 40 minutes before pick up based on our written information! She hurried us along, obviously unhappy about "our mistake". We boarded the bus and while we do not understand the Turkish language, the bus driver's body language and loud tone looked and sounded like anger; it was a very unpleasant bus ride driving around town for the next 30 minutes pi cking up other passengers! Luckily, we changed buses at their designated location, encountering a much better situation. Our tour guide was knowledgable, friendly and her English was good; the rest of the day was fine but it certainly had a very bad beginning!! And according to my pedometer application, we walked in excess of 12,000 steps!!!
