Byzantine Dreams: Turkey

A study in contradictions, Turkey is a nation with multiple identities. Straddled between the East and West, Turkey embodies characteristics of the Middle East as well as Europe. This 9-day roller coaster ride around Turkey includes a performance by whirling dervishes, cruising along the magical Bosphorus river, exploring the Old City of Istanbul and the mesmerizing landscape of Cappadocia, food tours with local guides, horse rides through valleys of Goreme, discovering the art scene in Istanbul, soaking in the rustic chic vibe of the old Greek village of Alaçatı and perhaps even a windsurfing lesson, marveling at the ruins at Ephesus. Stays will be in boutique hotels and homestays in Istanbul and Alaçatı and in a cave hotel in Cappadocia. Come along and savour the delights the Turkey has to offer.
