|Amphitheater, Pamukkale, Turkey|
Here's the scoop: this 11-night tour goes to all of Turkey's most famous destinations--Istanbul, the cave city of Cappadocia, Kusadasi (a hopping off point for the exquisite ruins at Ephesus), Canakkale, Konya, Ankara and Pamukkale. It's a whirlwind of an itinerary, but heck, if you keep moving, you're less likely to buy a rug you don't need. That's the one very real danger of visiting Turkey; other than that, there are few destinations as rewarding thanks to the variety of sites (from great Muslim mosques to Greek and Roman ruins to exquisite beaches, towering cliffs and cities carved out of caves.)
Included in the $1299 price are 11-nights of lodgings, 20 meals (all breakfasts and most dinners), a tour leader, entrance fees to the top sights, aifare from the US and in-country transportation. Lowest rates are from New York City, though reasonable add-on fares are available from other areas. Departure dates are scattered throughout February and March of 2013.
