This private tour is perfect for travelers interested in a more active vacation, and offers an ideal combination of Turkey’s most interesting and important cultural sites, stunning landscapes, and opportunities for hiking, biking, kayaking and other active pursuits.

Begin in Istanbul. During flexible private touring with your own guide, visit sights such as the Aya Sofia, the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and its beautiful Harem, ancient underground cisterns, and Istanbul's Spice Market. Enjoy a ferry ride on the Bosphorus. Shop for carpets and kilims, jewelry, glass, textiles and antiques at the Grand Bazaar. Also visit the city's most interesting museums and vibrant neighborhoods. If desired, spend a day exploring one of Istanbul’s lovely, peaceful Princes’ Islands by bicycle.

Accommodation in Istanbul is at the city's best luxury hotels, including the Four Seasons Hotel at Sultanahmet (located in the heart of the historic district), the legendary Ciragan Palace Hotel (a converted sultan's home on the Bosphorus) or the Four Seasons Hotel at the Bosphorus (an exclusive and luxurious urban resort).

Next, fly inland to Cappadocia to hike over unique landscapes and explore ancient subterranean cities filled with frescoed churches and cave dwellings. While there, stay in a luxury cave-style hotel.

Continue to Izmir. With your expert private guide, tour the magnificent ruins of Ephesus, including the Library of Celsus, the Terrace Houses and Ephesus Museum, as well as the nearby House of the Virgin Mary.

Next, drive to Bodrum, where whitewashed homes overlook the water. Spend the day cruising the Mediterranean on a private gulet, stopping to swim in crystal-clear coves and explore beautiful beaches. Also explore the historic whitewashed town and enjoy time at your beautiful resort.

Continue eastwards on the unspoiled Turquoise Coast, taking in views of bays, small islands and dazzling blue water. See rock-cut tombs and other fascinating Lycian ruins in Myra, Xanthos and Patara. Enjoy a cruise to Kekova Island to see the underwater ruins of an ancient city. Discover the Dalyan Delta, a conservation area of reeds and waterways that’s home to sea turtles, water birds and blue crabs. Kayak along the picturesque bays and islands of Gocek. Hike the Saklikent Canyon, as well as parts of the famed Lycian Way, if desired.

Finish your tour in Istanbul with two final nights in Turkey’s most exciting city.
