We depart from the Aegean city of Fethiye on our scenic meander to Kas. Our first stop for the day is at the Saklikent National Park to see the canyon up close on an optional gorge walk, and grab a bite to eat before departing for our penultimate stop for the day, a swim in the crystal blue waters of Kaputas. After our swim stop, we arrive to the coastal town of Kas. This evening join your guide for a walk into town to enjoy a delicious local dinner before heading back to the hotel to relax or heading out into the fresh sea breeze to explore the nightlife of this coastal gem.
Take your time to explore and navigate the town s quirky stores and cafes before heading to the ancient ruins located around town such as the Lycian tombs and the Greco-Roman amphitheatre. Alternatively spend the day soaking up the sun on one of the many beautiful beaches in the area or join in on the fun with some adrenaline pumping water sports on offer throughout the town. Tonight head out for an unforgettable dinner where you can feast on some of the freshest seafood on the Turquoise Coast!
This morning we depart Kas towards the bustling coastal metropolis of Antalya. We arrive just in time for lunch and you have the entire afternoon to explore this dynamic city. Soak up the sun and sea at the pristine white sands of Konyaalti beach, pick up some souvenirs, explore the massive stonewalls of the Old Town of Kaleici and see the triumphal arch of Hadrian s Gate. This evening explore the vibrant Turkish nightlife on offer in this sparkling seaside city.
This morning we begin our journey inland to the famous Cappadocia. We ll stop in Konya to visit Mevlana, the ornate resting place of influential Muslim philosopher Celaleddin Rumi, where you will have your first experience of Seljuk culture and see the dervish of the Sufi order. As we continue our journey we stop at Sultanhani, just as caravans on the Silk Road have since the Middle Ages. Sultanhani was the original roadside motel and has many stories to share so stay awhile and listen. We make our way to our lodgings for the night where we will be sleeping in a cave hotel. Tonight your guide will take you out for a local feast before you retire for the night in style.
Today we head out on a tour of Cappadocia s sights beginning with an ancient underground city, then onto Love Valley to explore the rocky spires of the fairy chimneys. We have a photo stop in Cavusin featuring its spectacular rock castle. We then stop in Goreme for a delicious local lunch where you will have ample opportunity to pick up some souvenirs. Before we return to the hotel we pass Pigeon Valley and an open-air museum. Tonight your guide will take you out for a local feast and drinks.
Prepare for an exciting day of exploration as we delve the depths of Cappadocia s hidden gems. Spend the morning discovering ancient churches, cave systems, secluded valleys and visit a traditional Cappadocian house that is home to ancient relics, some of which are thousands of years old. In the afternoon we return to the hotel, take a load off and unwind with a refreshing dip in the pool or rest and relax at the Turkish baths. This evening we have an optional Turkish cultural experience. This unmissable event features the mesmerising dancing of the whirling dervishes, the ever-popular belly dancing, and platters of local delicacies.
We depart early this morning to make our way onto Istanbul. Relax on board and enjoy the gorgeous scenery as we make our way to our photo stop at Lake Tuz. Tuz is the second largest lake in Turkey and one of the largest salt lakes in the world. Explore the mineral rich shores and stretch your legs before we board the coach for the final leg of our journey to Turkey s most populous city, Istanbul. We arrive to the cultural hotbed of Turkey in the evening to check into our hostel. Then we enjoy a traditional Turkish dinner as your guide familiarises you with the sights to see through the fog of shisha smoke. The rest of the evening is yours to enjoy this fantastic city!
Enjoy your last breakfast with us before checking out of the accommodation. We hope to see you again!
