Day 1

Istanbul – A Whirling Dervish Welcome to Turkey

Istanbul has always reveled in its exoticism, a proverbial magic carpet floating across streets of architectural splendor. The city excites and compels; domes reflect Mediterranean rays, old women gather to drink tea besides palaces, and a special performance offers a unique welcome to the city. Your family will be picked up from the airport and transferred to your hotel in Sultanahmet, the historic suburb that was once the centerpiece of Byzantium and Constantinople. There's limited road traffic here and many streets are pedestrianized, making it both quiet and safe. Sultanahmet also offers a prime base for easy wanderings and exploration of the city.

Resplendent in white and seemingly lost in the trance, the Whirling Dervishes spin for minutes without pause. Around and around they go, never losing balance as their movements match a soft drum beat and the resonant recital of poems. It's a performance that immediately imbues the inimitability of Turkey. Witnessing it is a rare experience. The Whirling Dervish performance is part of the evening entertainment as you sit down for dinner in Sultanahmet; glance skyward and the domes of the Blue Mosque cast another exotic spell.
