We are using a specialist tour company based in Istanbul for this tour to make sure we get the best possible experiences! We will have a local specialist with us throughout the whole tour to explore this fascinating region and to smooth the way with language and organisational issues.
We plan to arrive in time for the famous Istanbul Tulip festival which is celebrated across the city in early to mid April each year. Tulips are native to Turkey and really put on a show in their native habitat. We will then spend the next 10 days exploring the most interesting parts of the country including Cappadocia, Kusadasi, Cannakkale, Troy and Gallipoli before returning to Istanbul for 2 more nights and sightseeing. We then will fly from Turkey to Cairo to explore the capital before flying south to Luxor to board at 5 star 4 night Nile River Cruise. Visits to Aswan, Alexandria and Cairo round out the tour.
We are really pleased with the range and quality of hotels in which we will be staying. Please take the time to open the hotel list document in the tour documents section to check them out. All are well positioned and interesting.
