*You will notice an abundance of rest days and times, this is designed to accommodate  everyone, especially the introverts among us. We have added an extra day to assure that we all have adequate time to refresh and restore ourselves daily however we need. We use the word rest but understand that quiet time is not restful for all, so consider this to mean your time to do what you feel.

Traveling is intense, sharing space is intense. We know that Rest and Rejuvenation are key to a fulfilling and joyous experience.

GRAND TOTAL

$1275  for Club Members
$1450 for Non-Members

*Tour price does NOT include flights from US which are currently priced between $660- $1000
(but the grand total does include r/t in-country flights for our stay in Pamukkale)


WHAT IS INCLUDED?

+Your stay in a huge centrally located home (shared room)

+Airport Pick up

+All excursion and admission fees on our itinerary (including meals where explicitly stated)

+Stocked Kitchen (beverages, snacks, cooking essentials, and supplies for you to make traditional Turkish breakfast and pasta for light lunches and dinners)

+An adept and mostly charming guide who will ensure you are comfortable in the city and independently using public transportation by the end of Day 2 (a skill  many travelers balk at, but one we consider integral to appreciating and immersing yourself in any foreign country). Istanbul public transport is absolutely fantastic, and your Istanbul Kart is good for ferries, subways, funiculars, and the light rail.
