Exotic sights, scents, and sounds reign in this fascinating land where Europe and Asia meet. With its ancient ruins, stunning landscapes, and dramatic Turquoise Coast, Turkey engages and beguiles, offering your small group an unparalleled experience. The 15-day Turkish sojourn begins with four nights in magnificent Istanbul, where highlights include the Spice Market, the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sofia, and Topkapi Palace, and a private cruise on the Bosphorus. Experience haunting Gallipoli, ferry across the Dardanelles to storied Troy, and explore Pergamum’s spectacular ruins. A full-day tour reveals the treasures of classical Ephesus, along with lunch in rustic Sirince. Boarding a privately chartered gulet yacht, cruise the exquisite Turquoise Coast on a four-night “Blue Voyage,” visiting secluded coves and hidden sites and swimming, snorkeling, and hiking.
