Package Tour Itinerary: Turkey Express

ARRIVAL IN ISTANBUL
1
ARRIVAL IN ISTANBUL

After your arrival in the city that was once Byzantium (and later Constantinople), your English-speaking assistant will meet you at the airport and transfer you to your hotel in one of our private vehicles.  He will help you with the check-in, inform you about all the details of your trip, offer a brief presentation of the city and its day to day life and answer your questions. The rest of the day will be free for you to relax and start enjoying this stunning city.

Alternatively, you can join the Night Cruise on the Bosphorus with Dinner & Show or enjoy an hour's pampering at the Hamam Cimberlitas.

Greca Tip: You can also head to Ortaköy, the area for upmarket chic, where you will find a strip of stands serving kumpir, Turkey's answer to the jacket potato. Pick your spud and toppings and savour the seaside views while you eat on your feet.

FROM ISTANBUL TO THE MAGICAL CAPPADOCIA
2
FROM ISTANBUL TO THE MAGICAL CAPPADOCIA

After a nourishing breakfast, you will have the morning free in Istanbul.  In the afternoon you will depart for the magical and astonishing region of Cappadocia, unique for its incredible landscape and history.  Upon your arrival, you will check in at your hotel, have dinner and a good rest.

Greca Tip: Consult with your guide about the possibility of going on the famous balloon ride in any of the following days in Cappadocia (subject to weather conditions).

CAPPADOCIA
3
CAPPADOCIA

This day will be fully dedicated to the beautiful region of Cappadocia.  After a filling breakfast you will start by visiting the Göreme Valley, its open-air museum with the villages of prehistoric cave dwellers and underground cities.  It is here where the ideas of Christianity were unified by St Basil the Great and his Christian brothers. You will visit the churches, chapels and monasteries, with their ancient frescoes painted on the walls.

Your next destination will be the troglodite village of Uçhisar and the valley of Avcilar, which has a spectacular landscape.

You will continue through the Devrent valley, also known as Imaginary Valley, with its pointed, mushroom-like structures, many of which are said to resemble animal shapes. Finally, you will visit local artisan workshops, such as carpet-making or jewelry shops with the popular translucent onyx stones.

You will return to your hotel, where you will enjoy dinner and spend the night.

Greca Tip: At sunrise fly over the historic cave dwellings of Goreme Town in a hot-air balloon or watch the balloons from the rooftop garden of your hotel.

CAPPADOCIA TO PAMUKKALE & HIERAPOLIS
4
CAPPADOCIA TO PAMUKKALE & HIERAPOLIS

Early in the morning, and after a delicious breakfast, you will depart for Pamukkale, meaning 'cotton castle' in Turkish. On your way there you will stop at the Old Palace and Medieval Fort of Caravanserai, built along the trade route that once led to Persia. Here, in former times, merchants from the east and west used to rest, stock up on supplies and socialize. You will also visit Hierapolis, an ancient Hellenistic city declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site in 1988. You will see the ruins of the Necropolis and the ancient Roman baths. In the Antique Pool (beside the Temple of Apollo) you can have the most atmospheric hot spring experience with half-submerged columns and chunks of fallen marble scattered in the water all around you. You will be amazed at the sight of the cotton castle, a natural wonder of immense proportions, with white waterfalls that form pools of hot springs.  

Upon your arrival, you will have free time to familiarize yourself with the town, enjoy dinner, and a good rest at your hotel.

Greca Tip: You may use your free time to take a dip in the thermal pool of your hotel.

PAMUKKALE - ISTANBUL
5
PAMUKKALE - ISTANBUL

After breakfast, you will enjoy a free morning in Pamukkale and then we will transfer you to Denizli Cardak Airport to board your flight to Istanbul.  Upon your arrival, we will transfer to your hotel in the city center.

Greca Tip: You may take home one or two of Pamukkale's famed cotton ware, such as towels, bathrobes, and other textile products, or a bottle from the area's world-renowned wine.

FULL DAY ISTANBUL CITY TOUR
6
FULL DAY ISTANBUL CITY TOUR

After your breakfast, at the agreed time, we will pick you up from your hotel, or the nearest pick-up point, to begin a full-day tour of this magnificent city. It includes an official English-speaking guide, tickets, lunch at a central city restaurant and a visit to the most resplendent monuments that the Ottoman, Byzantine, and Roman empires have handed down to future generations: Hagia Sophia, Constantinople Racecourse, The Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and the Grand Bazaar, which houses more than 4000 stores.

At the end of the visit, you may linger some more in the old city, enjoying the amazing atmosphere, and finally you will make your own way to your hotel.

Greca Tip: Visit Camilca Hill on the Asian side of Istanbul and enjoy a panoramic view of the city, the Golden Horn and the Bosphorus.
