Travel Itinerary

Day 1


Welcome to Istanbul. Our luxury private shuttle will pick you up from the airport to the hotel. Depending on when you land, we are giving you this time to relax or to hit Istiklal Street for some vibrant energy and soaking in Istanbul vibe.




Day 2


After breakfast, we visit the city briefly and hit the bazaar! This is a shoppers paradise at very good prices; bargaining is also part of the game. In the early evening, we board a cruise for sunset and 3-course dinner on board, accompanied with traditional Turkish entertaiment. This is our Welcome Dinner to you and to say Thank You for travelling with us.




Day 3


Today we visit some historical sites; those who would like to continue with shopping can do that; those who would like to visit the nearest Princess Islands can do that also; various activities for various tastes!




Day 4


We hope you enjoyed your days in modern and exotic Istanbul; today we will fly to Cappadocia where you will marvel at the landscapes like no other. History in this place is mindblowing and the cave hotel you will be staying at is something to write home about. Don't just take our word, come along and live your best, dreamy life in Cappadocia!




Day 5


It's an early start today: we leave the hotel around 5am for our morning Hot Air Balloon ride over the dreamlike landscapes. We start with breakfast on-site, then the ride and a champagne celebration afterwards. This is an experience you will treasure for the rest of your life. The rest of the day is yours to enjoy on other activity; there is plenty of other activities.




Day 6


Today we leave magical Cappadocia for days by the coast. We arrive in Izmir Airport and our shuttle will take us to Alacati, a sophisticated beach town in Turkey. If you ever described a place as pretty, wait until you get to Alacati. The afternoon is yours to spend wondering the beautiful streets of Alacati with gelato in your hand.




Day 7


Today we hit the beach; we start off at the Marina for watersports for those who would love some adventure; later we visit a fine beach club for some good living and sophistication. Bring your swimsuit, your killer beach outfit - pics from here are gorgeous!




Day 8


Today we have an option of visiting Ephesus for a day; If you would like to enjoy more of Alacati, you are free to enjoy time out or join those visiting Ephesus at a personal cost. History here is amazing! Elegant shopping is very good in Alacati; this may be your chance for last minute shopping.




Day 9


Rest up; wake up late and enjoy this last day at the beach with cocktail in your hand. Soak in all the fun and pure magic you have experienced in Turkey. Hop on a boat for some time at sea - the day is yours to enjoy as you please.




Day 10


This is never an easy day but we have to head back home with tons of beautiful memories. Our shuttle will pick you up from the hotel to the airport for your flight back home. Thank you for traveling with us to this exotic country.
