A little about Whole Journeys:
Whole Journeys provides specialized, multi-day international and domestic trips for small groups. These active adventures will focus on truly engaging guests with local cultures in ‘through-the-back-door’ experiences. Regional cuisines and the culture of food will be key components, as will face-to-face interactions with producers and artisans. Small groups offer the perfect balance between structure and flexibility, activity and rest, education, personal discovery, food and fun.
A little more about this tour, Turkish Delights:
Historically located along the Silk and Spice Road trade routes, Istanbul has fused the flavors of 1,001 cultures, including the Persians, Arabs, Armenians, Greeks, Jews, Indians and Slavs. We’ll sample this diverse Turkish cuisine in authentic restaurants; from street vendors in colorful bazaars; and at fish markets, farmers markets and spice markets. Our through-the-back-door walking tour includes Istanbul’s must-see cultural spots, including mosques, palaces and the beautiful Bosphorus Strait.
Moving from Turkey’s bustling capital to its slower-paced villages, we’ll explore the hilly region overlooking the Aegean Coast—including the ancient ruins of Ephesus—before delving into Cappadocia’s breathtaking lunar landscapes and volcanic chimneys. Everywhere we walk, we’ll discover up-and-coming wines and local specialties created from the natural ingredients of each region—with flavors and tastes to delight all palates.
