itinerary

Day 1 - Istanbul / Overnight bus to Ephesus
Please be ready at our office before 20:00 (8:00 PM) as we depart at 20:00 for Kusadasi/Ephesus. Tonight's journey is an overnight bus ride. Rest assured, our buses are non-smoking, fully air-conditioned, and equipped with our most comfortable seats for the 11-hour duration.

Day 2 – Ephesus Tour, Overnight in Kusadasi
Today, prepare to check out of your hotel in Kusadasi, as we embark on a full-day Ephesus sightseeing tour starting at 09:00 am. You have the option to join a group tour or opt for a private tour. We begin by visiting the House of the Virgin Mary atop Bulbul Mountain. Discovered in the 19th century, it holds historical significance and is believed to be where St. John brought Mary between AD 37-48, where she spent her final years. Next, our journey continues to the Ancient City of Ephesus, one of the most remarkable excavations globally. Explore the Odeon, the Fountain of Trajan, the stream baths of Scholastika, the Temple of Hadrian, and the impressive library of Ephesus. The well-preserved library adorned with columns and statues offers a glimpse into ancient Roman life. Ephesus also houses the Grand Theater, where Saint Paul is believed to have preached. This outdoor theater, boasting a capacity of 25,000 seats, is an awe-inspiring sight. Our tour concludes with a visit to the Temple of Artemis (Diana), one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The day ends with a stop at the Mosque of Isa Bey, a 19th-century architectural gem also used as a caravanserai. A one-hour break allows for rest and refreshments at the onsite cafeteria. The tour wraps up around 16:30 - 17:00, after which you'll be transferred to your Kusadasi hotel for a delightful dinner and an overnight stay. (Lunch is included.)

Day 3 – Pamukkale and Hierapolis Tour, Overnight bus to Cappadocia
After breakfast, check out of your hotel in Kusadasi, taking all your belongings. At 08:00 am, embark on a day of exploration starting with Pamukkale, meaning ‘Cotton Castle.’ Its thermal springs have attracted visitors for over 23 centuries. Legends say the formations are solidified cotton left out to dry by giants. The terraces, petrified cascades, and Cleopatra’s Pool are must-sees. A short walk takes you to Hierapolis, the ‘Holy City.’ The Necropolis, with 1200 tombs, and the Martyrium, believed to be where St. Philip was martyred, are among the highlights. Explore the marble interior of Hierapolis CityBath, now a mediocre Archaeological Museum. The Grand Theater, carved into the mountainside, showcases ornate sculpted elements from the 3rd century CE. Enjoy a one-hour break for rest and refreshments. The Pamukkale tour concludes around 17:00. Next, board an overnight bus to Cappadocia at about 21:00 (10-hour duration). Breakfast and lunch are included.

Day 4 – Cappadocia Tour, Overnight in Cappadocia 
Upon arrival in Cappadocia, freshen up at your hotel before starting the exploration. Our first stop is Devrent Valley or ‘Imagination Valley,’ known for its unique landscape shapes resembling animals. Laugh with wonder as you spot these formations. Visit Pasabag (Monk’s Valley) to see mushroom-shaped fairy chimneys formed by rock deposits. Head to Avanos on the banks of Kizilirmak. Explore the old village with its maze of stone houses, some restored, others converted. Witness traditional Ottoman architecture, motifs, and murals. Engage in a hands-on pottery workshop. Enjoy a lunch break to recharge. Proceed to the Goreme Open Air Museum, featuring rock formations and rock-cut churches. The tour concludes at Uchisar, a village perched on a steep rock formation, offering dramatic panoramas of Cappadocia. There's one hour of free time to relax and soak in the views. The day ends around 17:00, and you'll be transferred back to your hotel. Lunch is included.

Day 5 – Cappadocia Tour, Overnight bus to Istanbul 
After breakfast, check out from the hotel and bring all your belongings as we head to your next destination. Today's tour begins with a visit to Red Valley and Rose Valley. Red Valley, one of the most beautiful places to walk in Cappadocia, offers astounding views when combined with Rose Valley. Don’t miss the Hacli Church and the Ayvali Church in Rose Valley, both adorned with remarkable painted decorations. The tour continues to the old Christian Village of Cavusin, followed by a visit to Pigeon Valley, which features spectacular views of natural cliffs and man-made caves. The next stops are Kaymakli Underground City and Ortahisar Castle. Kaymakli Underground City, with eight levels dating from the 6th to 9th centuries, showcases astonishing tunnels, cellars, store rooms, and stables carved from soft volcanic rock. Ortahisar Castle, situated at an 86m height cave, is a prominent structure in Nevsehir. You'll have one hour of free time to relax and take refreshments. The day's adventure concludes around 5:00 pm, and you'll be taken to a restaurant for an optional dinner. The overnight bus to Istanbul departs at 19:00 or 20:00 (11-hour duration). Breakfast and lunch are included.

Optional: Hot air balloon tour

Day 6 – Arrival in Istanbul and end of your tour 
Today marks the final day of your six-day adventure. After having breakfast on the bus, ensure all your belongings are packed as it's time to check out of the hotel rooms. We'll head back to Istanbul, and upon arrival, you'll take a free shuttle bus to Sultanahmet or Taksim Square, concluding our time together. We hope your journey exploring Turkey and Greece's hidden treasures has been everything you desired and more. We wish you a pleasant journey home and look forward to welcoming you again on one of our many other time-traveling packages.

This 6 day Turkey Tour by bus package was for me a fantastic way to see the country and the lifestyle of the Turkish people as by going by bus you are able to take in all the countryside views and have a look into the way of life of people as you head along the road. Im a bit of an old school traveller and much prefer to road trip around where possible than to take planes so when after emailing mehmet at www.greeceturkeytours.com and came across this 6 day turkey tour by bus i knew instantly this would be ideal for me. Im also a history fanatic so with it including sights such as Ephesus / Pamukkale and Cappadocia i was over joyed, the whole 6 day turkey tour was fully guided by a legend named Burak who had the most incredible knowledge of each and every place we saw or passed through on the road it was insane! Im so happy to have found such a unique holiday and for me personally it was everything i could of asked for.
