Best of Turkey itinerary

Continents collide in Turkey, a country where you can jump start your morning with a Turkish coffee in Europe and by lunchtime snack on a kebab in Asia. Start your adventure in Istanbul, a city reverberating to the rhythm of the country's famous whirling dervishes, flavored as sweet as pomegranate and Baklava, scented by exotic spices wafting from the colorful markets, and with a picture-perfect skyline pierced by the minarets of Blue Mosque. Continue on through Ankara and then to the 'fairy-tale' landscape of Cappadocia where Bronze Age cave-dwellers carved ancient cities into the region's tall, cone shaped rocks. These 'underground cities' now host homes and businesses and the hotel you'll be staying in. Antalya and its stunning Mediterranean coastline serves as the jumping off point for a trip back in time as you explore Turkey's world class Greco-Roman ruins highlighted by Ephesus, Europe's most complete classical metropolis. Finally, end your adventure with another full day in Istanbul for independent exploration. Our Turkey small group tour will show you the best that this mysterious land has to offer, all for an irresistibly value-packed price that makes it possible for you to discover your own Turkish delights.

Turkey Visa1 (paid separately) +$20

1. All visitors to Turkey must obtain a visa. Turkey visa must be obtained prior to travel. Comprehensive visa instructions will be included in your confirmation packet.

So that we can offer you the best deals, our packages are, like most hotels and cruises, priced based on double occupancy rooms or cabins. We charge solo travelers an extra fee to cover the extra costs of single occupancy rooms or cabins. (Consider: if you booked a $200/night hotel room solo, you would pay the $200 yourself; but if a couple booked the same room, each one would pay only $100.) But you only pay extra for the rooms or cabins, nothing else, including meals, sightseeing, tips, etc.
