Tour Itinerary

Day 1 - Istanbul New City Tour (L)

Private Istanbul Tour Program (Pick up from hotel or port).
Visit the Spice Bazaar and Rustem Pasa Mosque. See the 'New Mosque,' which is only 400 years old. Take the second oldest metro in the world up to the Galata Tower and have lunch nearby. Walk along Istiklal Street for consulates, churches, and arcades. This is Istanbul's version of Las Ramblas or Via del Corso - and much of the neighbourhood dates back to the rapprochement of the Ottomans with European powers in the late 19th century. See the Flower Passage and seafood arcade. Stroll around Orhan Pamuk's current neighbourhood of Cihangir, rated by the Guardian as one of the 5 best places in the world!! to live.

We recommend dinner at one of several places in Cihangir (Cezayir is a favourite.) Your guide can help you take a tram or taxi back to the hotel, or leave you to have a drink on the rooftop terrace at the Marmara Pera Hotel. Thisplace has stunning views and excellent martinis - and one of Istanbul's most expensive and interesting restaurants, Mikla. If you want to stay on to dinner, let us know and we'll make reservations in advance.

Hi, Michae

Just a short note to thank you and your staff for all the arrangements made for our recent trip to Turkey.

We had a great time. We came away from this, our second visit, more fascinated by Turkey, with the intention of making Istanbul a standard stop-over whenever we fly to Europe. Where ever we went, the Turkish people were very friendly, good humoured and treated us with kindness.

Everything went according to plan and not once were we inconvenienced with any of our transfers. All vehicles we travelled in were in very good condition, well maintained and the drivers very competent.

We enjoyed travelling domestically with Turkish Airlines, all of whose flights left on time, and where the in-flight service was consistently excellent and the refreshments served (in economy) tasty and enjoyable. Qantas could learn a lot from Turkish Airlines!

We were very happy with the accommodation arranged for us, particularly in Istanbul (Sokullu Pasa Hotel), Kusadasi (La Vista Hotel), Pamukkale (Spa Collosae Hotel) and Cappadocia (Sultan Cave Suites).

Our guides were uniformly good, particularly the excellent Mahmet in Istanbul but especially our guides in Pamukkale and Cappadocia (whose names we have unfortunately misplaced).

We bought a carpet in Istanbul from 5K Rug Store and some pottery from Guray Seramik In Nevsehir. In both cases the service we received was excellent with all purchases were safely delivered in accordance with our instructions.
