We worked with Zicasso and this travel agency to plan a trip to Turkey. We had two full weeks and decided to 'splurge'. We had greeters at each airport, private mini-buses to transfer us to hotels and guides to provide history and insight about sites all over Istanbul, Cappadocia and Bodrum.
Our guides and greeters spoke excellent English and were able to make history come alive for all of us as we visited ancient churches, mosques and museums all over the country. Our guides helped us create special memories by recommending good local restaurants rather than directing us toward touristy spots.
Zicasso arranged for us to see the most important places in each location and we were provided with high quality hotels, particularly in Istanbul and Bodrum. All of the mini-buses were in great condition, comfortable and our drivers were safe and careful and kind.
Some highlights of our trip include visiting a local family in Uchisar to cook a large lunch-time feast, a wonderful pottery in Nevsehir and a Gulet trip around the harbors near Bodrum.
We really enjoyed staying in the Argos in Cappadocia. The hotel is absolutely stunning and is one of the finest hotels we've stayed in. The meals were excellent there - especially the sumptuous breakfasts. I particularly enjoyed the tour of the hotel and seeing their 5km tunnel and their incredible wine cellar.
Discovering the diversity of Turkey, the warmth of its people and the amazing food and wines made this possibly one of our best trips as a family.
We would have either flown directly from Istanbul to Bodrum or postponed our Gulet trip by one day so we could stop in Ephesus while driving from Izmir to Bodrum.
