Itinerary idea in detail

Private customized tour. Ask us about booking your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • Upon your arrival in Istanbul, you'll be met by your private driver, who'll drop you off at your hotel in the Sultanahmet district.

  • This morning you'll have a guided tour of some of Istanbul's highlights, including the Hippodrome, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapı Palace and the Grand Bazaar.

  • Today you'll go on a food-oriented tour of Istanbul, starting on the European side before crossing the Bosphorus River into Asia. Taste local delicacies, from delicious dürüm (kebab) to the best baklava in the city. This evening you’re invited to watch the ceremony of the Whirling Dervishes at a 15th-century Turkish bath house.

  • You’ll be driven to the airport today for your flight south to Denizli. Upon arrival, you'll be driven in a private vehicle to Pamukkale. Once checked into your thermal spa hotel, we suggest you relax and make the most of the property's amenities.

  • This morning, explore the ruins of Hierapolis atop the striking Pamukkale terraces. Later, you drive to Kalkan via the beautiful ruined city Aphrodisias.

  • Today you're driven in a private car to the jetty, where you'll board a private boat for a trip across turquoise waters to the sunken city of Kekova. Here, you spend time with your guide exploring the city's submerged ruins.

  • You have a free day to perhaps relax by your hotel pool, stroll along Kalkan’s charming waterfront, or take a local bus along the coast to explore the coves, bays and pebbly beaches nearby.

  • Enjoy a leisurely breakfast before being driven to Dalaman airport for your return flight home.
