I will be in istanbul on vacation in September and plan on shopping in the Grand Bazaar. Would most shop owners ship purchased merchandise back to Canada? Your response would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Geri

Yes, they have it all organized. You haggle like mad for the carpet, but the shipping costs are set (between 100 and 300 to go to Canada). From all I have talked to, the rugs do get sent and all is good.

The pet shop is just behind the spice market or just behind the New Mosque. Luxury Istanbul may customize a nice tour for you. cheers
