Upon your arrival and hotel transfer, you’ll be immersed in the world of Turkey, a country walking the line between the old and new worlds. Mosques and minarets meet skyscrapers and modern conveniences bought with tourism dollars. Get settled in at your hotel and take in the sites of old Turkey with a privately guided sightseeing tour before lounging about in a cafe and drinking sweet tea under Middle Eastern stars.
Wake up, stretch, and head off to see the Atatürk Museum, homage to the founder of modern Turkey, and redolent of the early history of mankind. Afterward, wonder through the dusty streets, soak up the local flavors and smells, eat a Kebab from a local vendor, or sample some of the fresh fish from the Mediterranean. Afterwards, head to Kocatepe, a true Turkish mosque and prime photo opportunity.
