There has never been better value! 750 Turkish Lira is approximately $100.00 – this will buy you dinner for two in one of Istanbul’s best restaurants like Mikla.
Turks are renowned for their hospitality, and now more so than ever they are delighted to be welcoming guests from all over the world.
As Greg said ‘Seeing Istanbul almost completely empty of travelers in high season is something I’ll never forget.’ If you are ready to travel, this is an amazing time to visit.
Fall is a perfect time to travel – the weather is in the mid 70’s to mid 80’s and just great for exploring.
Whether your tastebuds prefer the sweet or savory Turkish cuisine is delicous and uses seasonal local produce. From casual dining of fresh grilled fish on the banks of the Bospherous to upscale dining, Turkey has it all!
Istanbul is one of the greatest cities in the world, with Roman remains, Byzantine buildings and Ottoman palaces. It is the only city in the world which served as the capital of the two long- lasting empires; both Byzantine and Ottoman and also the epicenter of two major religions; Christian and Islam. Today Istanbul is a vibrant, modern city that is a bridge between Europe and Asia where east meets west, old meets new.”
This incredible waterway divides Europe from Asia and there is nothing better than experiencing a private boat tour to admire the beautiful mansions that line its banks.
Cappadocia is one of the most magical places on the planet! Our team were there at the end of last year and this is what they had to say:
“Every morning in Cappadocia felt like Christmas — I would wake up and jump out of bed before sunrise, grab a cup of coffee and eagerly await the magic of flickering lights ascending as hundreds of hot air balloons took to the sky, against the scenic backdrop of ancient carved cliffs.” Jody Ricottone
”In Cappadocia, stunning otherworldly natural landscapes are mixed with quintessential Turkish carpets and ceramics. This creates a feast for the eyes like no other place I’ve been. I eventually found myself putting my camera down and soaking it in, as there’s no way to capture just how amazingly gorgeous Cappadocia is in a photograph.” Stella Bayley
The Grand Bazaar, the epicenter of Ottoman trading is today a magnificent shoppers paradise. Jewels, art, cashmere shawls, rugs, spices – you could be lost here for hours!
