Welcome to Istanbul! Upon arrival, proceed to transfer to your hotel for check-in and an overnight stay.
Get acquainted with the beauty Istanbul has to offer with a half-day visit to the landmarks that make it famous around the world. Begin the excursion as you travel to the Hippodrome, a once-central location of horse races, chariot rallies, and Byzantine civic life. Here, discover the three remaining monuments: the Obelisk of Theodosius, the bronze Serpentine Column, and the Column of Constantine. After that, head on to the Blue Mosque to see its grandeur and its harmonious cascade of cupolas and six minarets, which make it worthy of being one of the most majestic and elegant mosques in Istanbul. Then, go to the Mosque of St. Sophia. With its huge dome and well-preserved Byzantine mosaics, it is without a doubt one of the best examples of Byzantine architecture.
The morning is yours to explore on your own or to simply rest. Then, in the afternoon, prepare for your domestic flight to Kayseri. Upon arrival, proceed to transfer to your hotel in Cappadocia to check in and stay for the night.
Get ready for a full-day adventure exploring the amazing world of Cappadocia! After breakfast, discover the underground city of Ozkonak, used by the Christians of the 7th century as a refuge from the Roman persecutions. Here, you will also see the rock-carved churches in Göreme, troglodyte villages, and fairy chimneys at Urgup, Avcilar, and Uchisar. Then, enjoy an authentic Turkish lunch at a local restaurant. There will be time for you to explore the city on your own before heading back to the hotel.
Begin the day with a morning flight back to Istanbul. Proceed to transfer to your hotel to check in. The rest of the day is yours to enjoy at your own leisure.
This day marks the end of your beautiful experience in Turkey. After breakfast, you will be transferred to the airport for your flight back home.
We were supposed to book our 2013 honeymoon trip with Access Travel, back then we didn’t have enough savings to have the trip that we wanted. But it has always been my dream to try your services.
We wanted to try your group tours, but when they did not push through, we decided to try your private tours. And you did not disappoint! We’re so happy. My husband even commented that he now understood why a lot of people go to you for their trips.
