Istanbul is one of the world’s most fascinating cities: one foot in Asia and the other in Europe, it’s an absorbing mix of Sultan’s palaces, sophisticated nightlife and busy bazaars. You’ll spend the first three days of your trip dotting between these with your own personal guide – taking in the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Grand Bazaar (except Sundays), ancient Hippodrome and Yerebatan underground Cistern. Next, you’ll fly to the central region of Cappadocia, where you’ll take to the air for a breath-taking view of the fascinating landscape and explore rock tombs, mountain fortresses and lunar landscapes. You'll also experience a captivating ceremony of the Whirling Dervishes as they work themselves into a religious trance.

Day Three : Incredible Cappadocia

Wake early for the 1.5 hour flight to Cappadocia. From the airport, you’ll be driven straight to one of the region’s famous underground cities, used by Christian settlers to hide from invading armies and formed by a maze of narrow passages that criss cross deep underground. From here, you’ll continue to the ancient city of Sahinefendi (Sobesos), scattered with mosaics, chapels and a hammam and only discovered in 2002. Next, it’s the rock-cut Byzantine monastery of Keslik, home to a intricate frescoes and evocative chambers. On your journey between these attractions, you’ll pass incredible scenery: villages scattered about the hillsides and surrounded by table-top mountains. After stopping for lunch, you have three activity options to choose from – horse ride or mountain bike through apricot orchards and vineyards, climbing volcanic stone hills for breathtaking vista on mountain tops, or hike through the Güvercinlik Valley, finishing with a wine-tasting at a local vineyard.

After breakfast, you’ll spend the rest of the day exploring the captivating countryside. Start by wandering the compelling troglodyte houses of the Derwent Valley before heading to Pasabag. This valley is home to strange, toadstool-like rock formations, known as ‘fairy chimneys’.

Watch traditional artisans at work during a workshop, then continue to the Goreme open-air museum, where 4th-century rock monasteries honeycomb the mountains, topped by Byzantine churches.
