Hello. I have been to quite a few money changers but they don't seem to have turkish liras.

Still can change at turkey airport.

The info from tour group means they have studied already therefore advise the tour members to do so if want to change lira.

i just back frm istanbul.
dont change at turkey airport,coz they charge commision.
if u wnt just change abit,then if u go their shopping mall u can change without commision..and the rate better too.another place to have good rate is at grand bazaar,but the stuff there exp.
suggest u walk around at spice bazaar to buy thing as it cheaper than grand bazaar.
oh yes,u need change to euro first at sin.then.euro to lira at turkey
