Please Note:
1. Instead of travelling between Cappadocia and Istanbul by bus, an optional morning flight from Kayseri (Cappadocia) to Istanbul is available at extra cost. Please contact with us for a quote.
2. Single travellers may share a twin room with another traveller of the same sex, if available. If a same-sex room share is not available then the single room supplement will be payable. Room shares are arranged in order of booking.
3. The 2018 itinerary differs from the 2017 itinerary as follows: a. The 1st night in Cappadocia is replaced with overnight in Konya. b. We will travel to Cappadocia the following day visiting Sultanhani Caravansary en route. c. On the final day in Cappadocia we will visit Pigeon and Love Valleys instead of Ilhara Valley.

Accommodation

This page is intended to give an idea of the type of accommodation that may be expected. The actual hotels used for any given tour may change due to many reasons such as group size, availability, time of year, hotel standard has dropped or simply we found a better hotel. We update the website immediately if and when any changes take place. If and when we do change hotels it will be to a hotel of equal or higher standard and will be at no extra cost.

Where more than one hotel is shown for a given overnight stop this means that we alternate between the listed hotels. The pre departure pack will show hotel for a given departure.
