Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

East meets West in this Turkish extravaganza which reveals the Byzantine and Ottoman past of Istanbul, the fairy-tale landscapes of Cappadocia and some of the world's most revered ancient cities. Get lost in the colourful lanes of the Grand Bazaar, watch the dizzying dance of the Whirling Dervishes and descend into an underground fortress. Mother Nature and man have crafted an extraordinary land, over which empires have fought for centuries and you'll get to see all its wonders on this 10-day journey.

Day 1 - Arrive Istanbul (2 Nights)
It's the city Napoleon said should be the capital of Earth and while it may not quite have reached that stature, Istanbul's history as the capital of two great empires has left an enviable legacy of art, architecture and culture. Where better to begin your journey across Turkey than in its capital, the gateway to the Orient? On arrival, transfer to your hotel and explore the city your way before meeting your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a glimpse into what lies ahead.
Accommodation: Titanic Port Bakırköy

Day 2 - Istanbul Sightseeing and Free Time
Discover how centuries of Ottoman rule shaped the city's heritage as the meeting point between East and West when you join your Local Specialist this morning for a guided sightseeing tour, including a visit to Topkapi Palace Museum, the Hippodrome and Blue Mosque. Later, you'll have some time to explore Istanbul your way or consider an Optional Experience to Hagia Sophia, once the leading church in Christendom, and a cruise on the Bosphorus, separating Europe and Asia.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 3 - Istanbul – Ankara (1 Night)
Ramble past the colourful displays of lanterns, pottery and fabric as you wander through one of the world's oldest and largest covered markets, the Grand Bazaar. The scents of Turkish tea will linger long after you leave Istanbul, bound for Ankara. Arriving in the Turkish capital, you'll visit the Mausoleum of Atatürk, the founder and father of the Turkish Republic, before an evening to do as you please.
Accommodation: Holiday Inn Kavaklıdere
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 4 - Ankara – Cappadocia (2 Nights)
The hometown of the Hittites is under the spotlight this morning. Visit the Museum of Anatolian Civilisations, then continue to the whimsical landscapes of Cappadocia where this evening you could join an Optional Experience with the Whirling Dervishes, watching them whirl around and around in remembrance of God.
Accommodation: Ramada by Wyndham
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 5 - Cappadocia Sightseeing and Free Time
Cappadocia's fairy-tale chimneys take centre stage this morning as you journey to Pasabagi and Red Valley. Visit a regional rug production centre then enjoy an afternoon on your own amidst the fantasy landscapes left by Mother Nature in the ochre rock. An Optional Experience in Göreme reveals how Christians once worshipped in the many rock churches that remain to this day. This evening, dinner is served at your hotel.
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 6 - Cappadocia – Konya – Pamukkale (1 Night)
First up is the ancient city of Konya, the final resting place of the Sufi philosopher Mevlana whose famous mausoleum you will visit before continuing to the cotton fortress of Pamukkale, home to mineral-rich thermal waters which cascade down snow-white travertine terraces.
Accommodation: Richmond Thermal
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 7 - Pamukkale – Hieropolis – Ephesus – Izmir (1 Night)
See the ruins of the ancient Roman health spa of Hierapolis this morning before you come face to face with the ruins of one of the most important cities in the ancient Mediterranean world, Ephesus. You'll explore this 2,000 year-old ancient settlement, then head to the seaside port of Izmir.
Accommodation: DoubleTree by Hilton Alsancak
Meals: Breakfast

Day 8 - Izmir – Pergamon – Troy – Çanakkale (1 Night)
Visit the ancient kingdom of Pergamon this morning, most notably its Asclepion Medical Centre, which still bears the symbol of the snake-entwined staff that remains a symbol of medicine in modern times. Next on today's agenda is a visit to Troy, an ancient city that inspired Homer's tales about the wrath of Achilles and the siege of the same city, which was only broken through the clever construction of a wooden Trojan horse, a replica of which can still be seen today. Continue to Çanakkale later where dinner is served at your hotel this evening.
Accommodation: Büyük Truva Oteli
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 9 - Çanakkale – Gallipoli – Istanbul (1 Night)
A poignant start to the day sees you visit Gallipoli, where significant World War I battles were fought with heavy losses on both sides. You'll visit Anzac Cove, Lone Pine Cemetery and Chunuk Bair paying tribute to the brave soldiers who lost their lives in this relentless conflict before returning to Istanbul. As your journey through Turkey draws to a close, you'll want to get in on the action yourself this evening when you join an optional nightlife experience at the famous Kervansaray Night Club complete with belly dancing and traditional Turkish favourites. There's always time for one last Raki!
Accommodation: Titanic Port Bakırköy
Meals: Breakfast

Day 10 - Depart Istanbul
Your whirlwind encounter with the wonders of Turkey has come to an end. You've stood at the crossroads of East and West, trod in the footsteps of the ancients and admired ethereal landscapes that belong in a storybook. For now it's time to end this chapter with a heartfelt farewell to your newfound friends as you take your transfer to the airport and embark on your journey home. Conditions apply.
Meals: Breakfast

Love this tour will do it again in the future thanks to costsaver and affordable tours my agent Dana

By Rita G on Dec 26, 2018

I had an amazing experience. I highly recommend visiting Turkey. It is a beautiful country with beautiful landscapes and so much history. I will definitely use Affordable Tours / Cost Savers again in the future. The Itinerary was very well planned and thought out. For the price we paid, I cannot complain about anything. The rooms were clean, there was plenty of food available for breakfast and dinners, we had an excellent driver and tour/local guide - what more can I ask for.

By Elisa H on Oct 03, 2018
