Title: Turkey tour in Sep
Post by: cascoly on March 11, 2019, 19:32
Magnificent blue tiled mosques and Ottoman palaces; ancient Greek, Roman and Byzantine ruins, pure turquoise seas, rocky, forested mountains and spectacular geological oddities -- Turkey is all this.   Our 16 day journey will encompass all these features, walking and exploring traditional and classical sites and seldom visited areas. 

In Istanbul we tour the Byzantine masterpiece of Hagia Sophia,  the Blue Mosque,  Justinianís underground cisterns, the sprawling opulence of the Topkapi Palace, and bustling Covered and Spice markets. We drive and walk along Alexanderís route through Lycia, and visit fascinating museums holding wonders from 4 millennia. A sense of adventure is required Ė some of these areas are not visited very often, and we may adjust the itinerary due to local conditions, weather or unique opportunities. 

Our friend, Lutfi Atay, is licensed as a guide by the Turkish Ministry of Tourism and is a professor at the University in Canakkale.  He has been our guide for previous trips and will be with us throughout this trip. Iíve visited Turkey for 20 years and will escort this trip. We stay in 3-4 star hotels, often with 2 night stays. All meals are included (except dinner in Istanbul)  We travel in an air conditioned, private minibus.

Pre- and post-trip extensions visit the Green Mosque of Edirne, the Datrdanelles, Troy, the silk market of Bursa, and a relaxing cruise on a gulet (Turkish yacht)

While not specifically a photography trip, there are plenty of opportunities, and the itinerary often can be adjusted if you don't want to do the scheduled tour

If not specifically a photo trip, then it does not belong here.  We can all search and find good trips to Turkey and beyond.

For those interested, I took an excellent PHOTO trip to Turkey a couple years ago. They PHOTO guide was so good that we went with him to Uzbekistan, etc a couple years ago, and will be going to Sri Lanka and Iran starting next week.

PLEASE do not turn this into a travel advertising site -- unless it is a true PHOTO tour led by a professional photographer.
