Safety concerns?

Jump to last reply

Safety concerns?

My husband and I are well seasoned travelers and have booked a trip to Istanbul, Turkey in March. Airfare was purchased as well as hotel.

In light of recent safety concerns internationally, I have come up with some questions maybe some of the other experienced Fodorites can suggest.

We are doing this independently as we do all our trips.


Should we try to arrange a private tour escort for safety concerns?

Is this affordable?

I very much like the freedom of not being in a tour but do appreciate the "safety in numbers" concept.


I appreciate any and all suggestions.

Please keep in mind the hotel is booked and paid for so the entire time will be in Istanbul.


Looking forward to hearing from you all.
