Stroll through Topkapi Palace, with its impressive displays of jewelry, porcelain, clocks, miniatures, textiles, and religious artifacts. “Topkapi” means “Gate of the Cannon” for the Byzantine arsenal once situated where the Palace now stands.

You will then stop at the picturesque village of Uchisar.

Day 6Cappadocia

Today’s visit takes you to the labyrinthine tunnels of an underground city, with numerous levels carved out of the earth containing chapels, living quarters, kitchens, stores, and cellars.

The tour then proceeds to Goreme Valley and the open-air museum of Zelve, with their impressive rock churches and frescoes.

Definitely good value for money! I enjoyed this tour very much! The hotels were of the great quality, the tour guide was very intelligent and information he provided was very interesting. Visited great places in Turkey – highlights for me were a cruise in Antalya, ballooning in Cappadocia, and a Bosphorus river cruise. Definitely good value for money! Thank you! Sep 2022

I think there should be more time in Cappadocia since it is the best of the whole tour and it is very little time to enjoy it, other than that, great hotels, and the coach was excellent.

my family of 4(including a 4 year old) went on the Classic Turkey tour in november. We had an amazing time. I have travelled a lot but never on a group tour. This was one of the best trips we have ever had. Everything was taken care of, we just sat back and enjoyed. The hotels were nice, the tours were nice. The only thing you might want to consider is that you travel on a bus from city to city which can be many hours on the bus. We however didnt mind because it allowed us to really see the country. If you travel with kids just make sure to take something they can watch movies on while on the bus. I had many questions and Can was always very prompt at answering, actually all of my emails were answered within the hour. We were very satisfied with the whole experience
