Day 1 Istanbul

Discover hidden charms on a walk through Istanbul’s bustling backstreets and watch a sunset over the impressive Sultanahmet skyline.

Day 4 Selcuk

Step back in time on a visit to the historic Roman ruins of Ephesus. Then, stretch the legs on a walk back to the town of Selcuk. On arrival, be sure to indulge in an invigorating scrub at the local hamam – it’s just the tonic for tired muscles.

Trek along mountain tracks and arrive in Turkey’s chilled out Kabak. Exchange hiking boots for paddles on a kayaking adventure over a sunken Byzantine city.

When the sun sets, head to the local market to purchase a handcrafted souvenir or two.
