Turkish Aromatic Odyssey

The magnificent blue mosque in Istanbul at dawn Fragrant Damasc rose in full bloom Delightful resort on the blue Mediterranean

Turkey

Situated at the cross roads of Europe and Asia, Turkey is an ancient country of great natural beauty and diversity, washed on three sides by sea, with dramatic mountain ranges, mighty rivers,
striking countryside and remarkable ancient ruins.

The history of Turkey is vast, stretching back beyond 2,500 BC with names such as Troy, Homer, Alexander the Great, St Paul, the Roman Empire, Ephesus, the Crusades and the Ottoman Empire, all taking their place in Turkey's colorful tapestry of cultures and events. We will walk amongst the ruins of ancient Greece, the Byzantine empire and medieval times, pondering this glorious past and marvel at the richness of Turkey's contemporary cultural heritage.
During our sojourn we will explore the rich aromatic heritage of this diverse land, from exotic Istanbul with its dramatic mosques, Roman and Ottoman relics, bustling markets, bazaars, spice merchants and Turkish baths situated on the shores of the beautiful Bosphorus
We will then journey to the spectacular beauty of Cappadocia, one of the cradles of early Christianity with its underground churches and cities carved out of the other-worldly landscape, magnificent hand made carpets and mystical whirling dervishes. Our path will then take us along the beautiful blue Mediterranean and some of the most stunning coastline in the world to explore gorgeous small villages and cruise the azure waters.
Along the way we will experience glorious fields of fragrant Turkish roses, breathtaking countryside, rose oil distilleries, pampering spa treatments,  wonderful accommodation and delicious cuisine.

"Robbi and Jim are marvelous hosts, our guide was the best you could ask for. Our travels were perfectly orchestrated and it never felt like I was 'on tour' but rather like I had joined some new friends for an exquisite experience.  And on top of all this, I never had to worry about the details! THANK YOU from the center of my heart!  I hope to see you again soon."
