Turkey Magic Carpet - XFEZMC
Number of Days: 10
Many consider Turkey to be one of the lesser-known (and yet magnificent) jewels of the world. What better way to experience this vibrant paradise than through the use of a 10 day Turkey tour? We are happy to be able to offer this unforgettable experience to clients from all over the world.
What are some of the main features of such unforgettable Turkey tour packages? At Your Fingertips Our Magic Carpet Turkey coach tours will enable visitors to experience the splendour of such cities as Istanbul and Ankara. However, the true majesty of these Turkey tour packages is the ability to become immersed within what can only be called one of the most interesting cultures in the world. Ancient sites including Cappadocia, Hierapolis and Ephesus can be viewed.
With immortal attractions such as the Temple of Artemis, anyone who even mildly appreciates history will be swept away. When punctuated by visits to the city of Troy and the Acropolis of Pergamum, it is clear to understand why these cheap holidays to Turkey have drawn so much international attention.
Welcome to Istanbul! You will be transferred to your hotel and the remainder of the day is yours, free to explore.
After breakfast, you will enjoy a fully guided tour of the only city to span two continents, visiting the Blue Mosque, the Aya Sofya, Topkapi Palace and the Hippodrome.
One of the most emotionally touching places in Turkey, today we visit the WWI Battlefields of Gallipoli including Lone Pine and Chunuk Bair Memorials, ANZAC Cove, The Nek and Johnston’s Jolly, original trenches and tunnels.
This morning, step back in time as we visit Troy, home of the famed Trojan Horse and then tour the magnificent acropolis of Pergamum. Its impressive temples and library made Pergamum a renowned cultural and political centre in its time.
Absorb yourself in history today with a guided tour of Ephesus and a visit to the site of the Temple of Artemis. Feel the mystical atmosphere of the ancient city and theatre before continuing to the former Greek village of Sirince, famous for producing fruit wines. Carpet weaving has long traditions in Turkey and so we visit a carpet village to learn how the carpets are made by hand and what determines their value.
This morning we will enjoy a display of locally handcrafted leather goods before heading to the the magnificent white calcium terraces, known as Travertines, in Pamukkale where we also tour the ancient city of Hierapolis. Take a dip amongst ancient columns in the hot springs that were used in Roman times for their therapeutic powers.
Today we travel the ancient Silk Road visiting Sultanhani Caravansary and the Mevlana museum in Konya along the way. Tonight, don't miss the optional traditional Turkish folklore evening!
Marvel at the lunar landscape of Cappadocia through the Goreme Valley Open Air Museum, the fairy chimneys and explore the many levels of an underground city.
We take an early morning departure to the nation’s capital, Ankara where we visit Anitkabir, mausoleum of the famed Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, before returning to Istanbul. Optional morning flight to Istanbul from Kayseri, Cappadocia.
After breakfast our tour concludes as we say goodbye to our new friends.
