Thrilling Turkey

Turkey is a country with a rich and ancient history. The scenery changes from beaches to mountains and almost otherworldly landscapes in between, and certainly the cuisine here is worth writing home about. Turkey is joy when you take a hot-air balloon ride across the whimsical land of Cappadocia, Turkey is awe-inspiring in the serene travertines of Pamukkale and Turkey is excitement in the numerous streets of the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. Turkey is a destination you wouldn’t want to miss, the sheer variety of experiences here is a draw for travellers.

  • Day 2

    Cappadocia

    There’s a lot to explore in Cappadocia and we’ll do just that, heading out for sightseeing right after breakfast. We’ll start with the Kaymakli Underground City, a maze of tunnels and rooms that people long used to occupy and was a flourishing city. We next go to the Soganli Valley, an opportunity for an easy 3 km hike during which you can see the rock tombs of the Byzantine period. Sobesos, a Roman bath from the same period, is next on our list and this is followed by a visit to Mustafapasa, a town steeped in Greek Orthodox history. We return to the hotel for the night.

    Hotel Exedra or similar
  • Day 3

    Cappadocia to Izmir

    We check-out from the hotel after breakfast and visit Pasabag, a valley that contains some of the most striking mushroom-shaped rock formations. We follow this up with the Devrent Valley, famous for the whimsical landscape that easily allows your imagination to run wild. We’ll also visit Uchisar, the highest point in Cappadocia for an excellent panoramic view and conclude our day out with Pigeon Valley, one of the longest valleys in Cappadocia.

    Kusadasi to Pamukkale

    After breakfast, we’ll check-out and transfer to Pamukkale, a small town located in the south-west part of the country. Pamukkale is famous for the powder-white terraces or travertines that have been formed over the millennia by limestone deposited in the hot springs. This gives the terraces an appearance of being covered in snow. Besides this geological wonder, Pamukkale is where the well-preserved ruins of the Greek-Roman city of Hierapolis exists. After this we check-in at the hotel.

This allows you time to explore the colourful markets or pasars as they are called in Turkey, or catch a show at the extraordinary 4th century amphitheatre or stroll along Palmarina, Bodrum’s newly renovated marina. The options at this seaside port city are numerous. Later, we meet up for a private boat tour and visit the Bodrum Bays, situated in the Aegean Sea.

We end with a visit to the Ottoman-era Spice Bazaar where mounds of vividly-coloured spices, herbs, dried fruits and nuts are available.

  • Day 10

    Departure from Istanbul

    Today we’ll spend half the day at the Grand Bazaar, one of the world’s oldest and largest covered markets in the world with over 4,000 shops. This market is a shopaholic’s dream come true! From traditional Turkish lanterns and carpets, to clothing to antiques to pottery to jewellery to the famous Turkish towels, your choices are overwhelming.

  • If you are travelling alone and/or dont know how to go about it, then WOW Club is the perfect place for you. You just confirm your travel, and leave the rest to them.Your tickets, hotel bookings, visas will all be taken care of by them. On my recent trip to Turkey with WOW , i was really happy about the location of the hotels as well. They were all so centrally loacated that you could enjoy the local nightlife on your own. On the whole they are efficient, well organised and reliable. The WOW Buddy who travels with the group is a buddy in true sense, lending all the support and help needed. I highly recommend travelling with WOW 😊

Hello there! If you come on this trip, we're going to have a lot of fun together. Ask any queries you may have and I will get back to you as soon as possible

Get in touch
  • What does twin share price mean?

    Twin share price is the price mentioned against a package and it refers to the cost per head for a double sharing accommodation. If you'd like to upgrade to Single Occupancy, please select this at the time of checkout
  • What meals are included on my trip? Can i request Indian / vegetarian / special cuisine on tour?

    The exact number of meals included on the trip is clearly specified on the itinerary and is different for each trip. Our vacations strive to introduce you to local authentic flavors, so you can enjoy the destination in a deeper way. Therefore, included meals are usually local or continental. Please request vegetarian meals at the time of booking, and also with the local guide and WOW Buddy on tour; this can usually not a problem when requested in advance. When meals are not included, you may choose an restaurant of your choice in the city you are touring.
  • Regarding the hotels, what does OR SIMILAR refer to?

    OR SIMILAR means that the hotel booked might be different from the hotel mentioned in the itinerary. 90% of the time we book the hotel that’s mentioned, but under few situations it might differ due to on-the-ground factors. So we pick an alternate hotel, but always in the same class and area of the city.
  • Why don't you include flights in the Package cost?

    Since our wanderers are located a variety of locations in India and outside India - it is impossible to include flights in the trip cost.
