DAY 2 - ISTANBUL (BL)
We'll visit historic and modern Istanbul today. High points will include the Hippodrome, the Museum of Turkish and Islamic Arts, and the stunning Blue Mosque. Then it's on to Aya Sophia, whose heritage as both a basilica and emblem of Islamic architecture neatly sums up the strains that have created modern Turkey. We'll fit in the fabled Topkapi palace, with its formal gardens, salons of state and stately boudoirs of the sultan's harem; as well as the Treasury, whose collection includes priceless Chinese porcelain. At the Grand Bazaar, there will be occasion to assemble your own treasure from over 5000 stands, kiosks, and shops, filled with carpets, leatherwork, and treasures and trinkets from all points eastward.

 

 

 

 

DAY 3 - ISTANBUL (BL)
This morning, we'll stretch our legs as we take in the sights, sounds, and aromas of Istanbul up-close.

From the traditional Karaköy district, where overseas bankers and shipping companies had their headquarters, we'll ascend via the Tünel-an antique subway line-up to Istiklal Caddesi, a sedate nineteenth-century thoroughfare lined with former embassies. We'll stop in at the tekke of the renowned whirling dervishes. And in keeping with the traditional surroundings, we'll be hosted to tea at the landmark Pera Palace Hotel. We'll continue on foot, at least as far as Galatasaray Square, and lunch in the Çicek Pasaji (Flower Passage); then it's on to busy Taksim Square to rendezvous with our coach. We'll venture farther a field in the afternoon, to Yildiz Palace Park and the Ihlamur Kasri, a refined little palace south of Yildiz, and the Military History Museum in Harbiye, arriving in time for the strains of Mehter, the traditional Ottoman military band.

Balloon flight is one of the best activities that you can join in Cappadocia and probably an experience of a lifetime.

At five in the morning, smoke is beginning to rise from the village chimneys below you. The barking of dogs, startled by the balloon, attracts sleepy villagers outside to wave enthusiastically. The weird twisted landscape of corroded rock to which you have partially become accustomed from the ground level, becomes even more unearthly when viewed from several hundred feet above. A 90-minute hot air balloon flight culminating in a champagne breakfast on landing. In two words? Breathtaking and Unforgettable!

This is by Kapadokya Balloons www.kapadokyaballoons.com. They are the best in Cappadocia. Lars and Kaili, the owners of the company, are probably the best balloon pilots in Europe and they operate and fly the deluxe (90 minute) flights. Please note that breakfast is offered only after the flight.

What other say about our service in Greece :

 

" Omar -

We had a perfect vacation in Greece!

Dinner our first night at the rooftop restaurant of the Titania overlooking the Acropolis as the sun set and the lights came on!

Santorini was magical - though we enjoyed the sunsets from Fira instead of Oia. We did rent an ATV and got to Red Beach and Oia on day trips.

The ferry to Crete made half the boat sick - but not us!

The Movenpick in Crete was really beautiful - a luxurious place to rest after a long week.

We were upgraded to executive suites by both the Titania and the Athens airport Sofitel, you should know. They took good care of us!

We loved the Ouzo, the shopping, the sunsets, the beaches, the colors of the sea and sky, the friendly waiters, the people at the Tzekos Villas, the shop owners - we loved Greece!

We WILL return someday, especially to Santorini!

And contacting you via the Internet to arrange it was the perfect way to set it up.

Let us know if we owe you money - the hotels said everything was pre-paid though we charged a few things, like bottled water, to our rooms.

Thank you again, Omar, for everything! I've already referred a couple of other people to you. You do a fine job!

Gratefully,

Jodi and Stan ""
