Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Arrive in Istanbul

Arrive in Istanbul where you'll be met and transferred to your luxury hotel in the centre of the city, around 45 minutes from the airport. Spend the rest of the day relaxing at your hotel or exploring the city at your own pace. Head out this evening and enjoy dinner at one of the city's many superb restaurants (not included).

Stay: Tomtom Suites

Days 2-3

Spend two days exploring Istanbul in the company of your expert local guide. You'll discover the many highlights of this fascinating city as you visit the Blue Mosque, Aya Sophia and Topkapi Sarayi, take a stroll around the markets and shops of the Grand Bazaar, discover the incredible array of incense and spices on display at the spice market, and enjoy an unforgettable private yacht cruise on the Bosphorus, the famous stretch of water that separates the continents of Europe and Asia.

Stay: Tomtom Suites

Day 4
Istanbul to Bodrum

Take a transfer this morning to Istanbul's Ataturk Airport for a flight to the coastal resort of Bodrum on the shores of the beautiful Aegean Sea. You'll be met on arrival and transferred to your hotel before spending the rest of the day at leisure.

Stay: The Marmara, Bodrum

Days 5-6

Spend the next two days exploring the historic attractions of Bodrum and enjoying the crystalline waters and secluded beaches of Turkey's Aegean Coast. Your first morning in Bodrum will be spent on a half-day tour of the historic old town, taking a plethora of fascinating sites including St Peter's Castle, which is located in Bodrum's picturesque harbour and now houses the superb Museum of Underwater Archaeology. From there you'll head to the mausoleum and ancient theatre of Halicarnassos before enjoying an afternoon at leisure to further explore the delightful old quarter. The next day is free, and we recommend taking a private gulet cruise around the stunning Aegean Coast, giving you plenty of opportunity to soak up some sun and swim in the warm waters of the Aegean Sea; the perfect end to this two-centre Turkey holiday.

Stay: The Marmara, Bodrum

Day 7

Spend a morning at leisure before transferring to Bodrum Airport in time for your onward flight.
