Istanbul Disabled Travel Services

The Istanbul Disabled Travel Agents at Sage Traveling can provide you with everything you need for an accessible trip to Istanbul:

Some hotels in Istanbul are fully accessible including bathrooms that meet current accessibility standards. Sage Traveling can arrange for accessible lodging for you.Personally-Inspected Accessible Hotel Accommodation – Finding a truly accessible hotel in Istanbul on your own can be a very long and frustrating process. Accessibility standards in Turkey are not as good as other European destinations so you really need to confirm that doors are wide enough, wheelchair ramps are not too steep (like the one shown on the right), and roll-in showers are truly wheelchair accessible.

Sage Traveling experts have personally reviewed numerous wheelchair accessible hotels located in the New District and Old Town of Istanbul, including hotels near the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. You will be provided with a hotel that meets your accessibility needs (for example, roll-in shower or bathtub with grab bars). Our hours of research make sure that you avoid a disappointing hotel experience.

* Note – Accessible hotel rooms fill up quickly in Istanbul. We recommend contacting us 3 to 6 months before your arrival so that you will be able to choose from the most accessible hotels.

“The location of the hotel was perfect, short walking distance to attractions and restaurants.”– Kim Nelson.

Accessible Transportation in Istanbul – There are only few accessible options for getting around Istanbul.  We can recommend to you the best mix of accessible tram lines, wheelchair accessible taxis in Istanbul, and accessible walking/rolling routes to get around the city. If you need a wheelchair accessible taxi in Istanbul, Sage Traveling can arrange for it to pick you at Istanbul Ataturk airport or the cruise ship dock to bring you to your hotel.

Accessible Walking, Rolling, and Driving Tours – To experience the best that Istanbul has to offer, you’ll need to have a local guide explain the history behind the buildings and ruins that you see. We can provide you with a half day or full day handicapped accessible tour in Istanbul.

“My father in the wheelchair had such a wonderful time. The guide and the vehicle used were excellent and was very informative and helpful. He assisted with the wheelchair and was a great help for my mother” – Andrew, Australia.

“I am a wheelchair user and have just returned with my husband from a cruise which started in Istanbul and ended in Venice.  The information you provided on both these cities was absolutely invaluable.  Without it, the ‘official’ guidance in travel guides and in cruise information had led me to think I would be able to see very little in these cities.  “No access/limited access/restricted access” seemed to be the main description of so many sites and places of interest.  In the event, thanks to your very helpful guidance, in Istanbul I visited the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and the Underground Cisterns without difficulty.  In Venice, where even the local guidance information about water travel was rather negative and hesitant, once again I was able to benefit from your extensive guidance.  We used the Vaporetti to tour the Grand Canal and then followed one of the routes around St Mark’s.  Brilliant!

I just wanted to say thank you for the detailed and extremely helpful information which certainly made a positive difference to my visit to Istanbul and Venice.” – Margaret from UK
