Default Rome, Athens, Istanbul

Does any one have any advice on the best shopping and bargains for Leather purses and shoes? Is Istanbul better that Rome? What about Gold and Silver Jewelry...Athens, Rome or Istanbul? Can anyone let me know of any particular shop that they like or got a great buy?

Dear Cindy:

As I am sure you are aware, Turkey is in a Terrible economic crisis. Prices are much lower than anywhere and foreign money is greatly needed.

I would like at this moment to describe shopping in Turkey. It is true that most guides receive a commission from shopping centers and attempt to have you shop where they receive the best commission. While this is discouraged by the guides association, it is purely impossible to end due to the economic conditions here. Aside from commissions, pricing also deceives many tourists. Pricing of goods is not the same for tourists as for residents.

Our wish is to end both of these practices. Should you wish to shop, we will take you to the best and most honest sellers, we are very experienced in these matters and normally take tourists to the places we shop from ourselves. We can assure you that you will not only receive the lowest published price but at least 10% discount, sometimes 20% sometimes more.

Should you wish to contract our services during your stay in Turkey, please feel free to contact us at flut-travel@unimedya.net.tr or at the following telephone numbers:

Office: 90-232-463-7174
