Day 02: Full-Day Ottoman Relics and Byzantium Tour

After breakfast at the hotel, guests will be picked up and driven to the Sultanahmet district, the city’s oldest and most historic area. The first attraction of the day will be the Hagia Sophia, as our tour guide describes the significance of this enormous building that was first a Christian church, then a mosque, and now a museum. Following that, we will drive past the Hippodrome of Constantinople and its spectacular obelisk before arriving at the Blue Mosque. We should make sure to get shots of both the interior and exterior of this magnificent structure. Next, we will head to the Grand Bazaar, a big, crowded complex where you can shop for clothing, household goods, food, and more.


We will pass through several historical sites en route to the bazaar, including the Sultan Ahmet I Tomb, the Firuz Aga Mosque, and the exterior of the Mehmed II Tomb. After our tour of the Great Bazaar, we will stop briefly for lunch. We will go to Topkapi Palace in the afternoon, which served as the Ottoman sultans’ main palace for about 400 years. The guests are then taken back to their hotels.

Day 03: Full-Day Bursa Tour

Morning breakfast at the Hotel Arabic,  After passing the BOSPHORUS BRIDGE and travelling for 50 minutes in an open ferry while taking in the sights of the IZMIT GULF, we visit the Turkish Delights Factory. Then, we climb the ULUDA-OLIMPOS MOUNTAIN and stop along the way to visit a natural honey shop. After that, we visit the magnificent INKAYA TREE, which is more than 600 years old. Next, we have lunch in a lush valley on the mountain, then we reach the top of the mountain to enjoy the scenery and descend to the city’s centre by cable car, and finally, we visit a shopping centre in the city of Bursa.


If the cable car is out of operation, the ascent and descent to or from the mountain will be via bus.

  • The chair lift (if using the cable car) and Quad Bike are free of charge, and our agency is not responsible for guest safety.
  • Due to severe weather or traffic, we can use the OSMANGAZI Bridge instead of the boat.

Return to the hotel for an overnight stay.

Day 04: Full Day Princes’Island Tour (Electric car)

After breakfast at the hotel, we visit the Princes’ Islands, a group of nine islands in the Marmara Sea. In Byzantium, the period was used as an exile for princes, thus the name Princes’ Isles. The islands are well-known for their magnificent beaches, spectacular mansions, tiny cottages, and tranquil surroundings, particularly the pine trees. We join the boat trip and enjoy the views of Istanbul from the sea for more than an hour, then visit Heybeliada or Burgazada Island. The largest island, Büyükada, is famous for its clean air because it does not use vehicles; instead, one rides a horse-drawn carriage from the bottom to the top of the island, travelling through a natural forest where one can witness all the beautiful views. After taking a ten-minute break at the top of the island, we visit a shopping mall or tourist shop in the city, which is open all year except May 1st.

After breakfast at the hotel, check out and fly to Trabzon, where you will check into your hotel for an overnight stay there.


Day 06: Trabzon Full-Day City Tour

After breakfast at the hotel, we head to the Hagia Sophia Mosque. The building, which is now a mosque, was constructed during the reign of the first Manuel Komnenos (1238-1263). After Fatih Sultan Mehmet conquered Trabzon in 1461, the building was transformed into a gallery and turned into a foundational structure. Sera Lake is 4 kilometres long, on average  150 metres wide, and 55 metres deep. It was formed when a slope from the Sera valley that was 3 km from the shore was closed and poured into the sea. The intriguing part is that it arrives right before people’s eyes within a short period of time. The Atatürk Pavilion was constructed at the start of the 20th century within a tiny pine tree in the Souksu neighbourhood. Atatürk stayed here on his travels to Trabzon in 1934 and 1937. Once the Great Leader passed away, Trabzon Municipality converted it into a museum. Boztepe is a special location with a panoramic view where you can escape the bustle of the city. Return to the hotel for an overnight stay. 


Day 07: Full-Day Uzungol Tour

Following breakfast at the hotel, we will begin our full-day tour of Uzungol. First, we will travel to Uzungol, which is 100 kilometres from Trabzon. On route, we will stop at a tea plant to sample locally renowned, freshly brewed tea.

The lake is 1090 metres above sea level, located in the middle of a valley, and was formed by landslides that blocked the stream channel and were surrounded by magnificent forest cover.

We will have lunch by the lake, and then we will have some free time to take in the scenery while taking in the fresh air. Spend the night at the Uzungol hotel.
