We are going to Turkey on the May 12 tour, and would like to apply for our visa from home rather than wait in line at the airport upon arrival. How and when do we do this?
Secondly, in m reading I have received mixed information about what currency to carry; some say USD, others say both USD and TL. I assume there may be big differences between what is preferred by merchants in the rural locations our tour visits and Istanbul. I very much like to frequent the bazaars and do shopping with smaller merchants if this makes a difference.
Last spring I did a tour of Italy and we were mailed hardcopy Rick Steeves guides to Italy as part of our package. I will be bringing my Ipad this time, and wondered if our tour package will be supplying us with the Turkey guide? If so, can we get a downloadable copy?
