Turkey is considered one of the lesser-known jewels of Europe and the world! It’s here where the east meets the west and Europe and Asia connect. You’re invited to a tour comprised of hidden gems & must-see highlights

During this tour we will be covering Cappadocia and Istanbul.
What puts Cappadocia on the map is the hot air balloon tour that gives you an unparalleled view of the beautiful landscape of this region. Once you step out of the balloon, you’ll feel as if you have landed on a different planet. Cappadocia is Turkey’s most visually striking region, especially the “moonscape” area around the towns of Ürgüp, Göreme, Uçhisar, Avanos and Mustafapaşa (Sinasos), where erosion has formed caves, clefts, pinnacles, “fairy chimneys” and sensuous folds in the soft volcanic rock.
Although the volcanic landscape can appear inhospitable, the mineral-rich soil is excellent for growing vegetables and fruits, making Cappadocia a rich agricultural region. It has always been one of Anatolia‘s prime grape-growing areas, and still boasts many productive vineyards and wineries.

Istanbul: Many of Istanbul’s top sights such as Topkapı Palace, Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque and the Hippodrome, are in or near Sultanahmet, as are many good hotels, including charming Ottoman inns. Istanbul‘s Grand Bazaar is just a 12- to 15-minute walk or short tram ride west of Sultanahmet along the old Roman road called Divan Yolu.
Once you’ve settled into your Istanbul hotel, you might want to take a city tour for orientation, and later a Bosphorus cruise. Be sure to take some time to just sit at a sidewalk café and sip Turkish tea or coffee, or go native and smoke a nargile (water pipe). Dine on savory Turkish cuisine in an excellent Istanbul restaurant, consume a traditional fish sandwich by the Golden Horn, and you’ll realize why it’s my favorite city in all the world.
