Istanbul & Turkish Resort

Two Centre Holiday

Istanbul & Turkish Resort

Prices from £998 per person

One of the best ways to experience Turkey is to combine a short break in Istanbul with a relaxing stay in a coastal resort.  Sightseeing can be tiring so what better way to relax than to spend the following  7 nights soaking up the sun in one of Turkey’s attractive resorts. The total duration of your holiday will be 10 nights, however, you can stay longer or shorter, this type of holiday offers great flexibility.

For 2 centre holidays, you will fly direct from UK any day of the week. You will be met by our driver/ representative and transferred to your hotel. After 3 days exploring this fascinating city, you will be transferred back to the airport for your internal flight to the nearest domestic airport to your chosen hotel. You will be met by our local driver/representative and transfer you privately to your resort hotel for a 7 night stay. On your return you will be transferred back to the airport for your return flight. You can fly direct from your resort airport to the UK, or via Istanbul with Turkish Airlines. If you fly via Istanbul, although your baggage will be checked in straight through to the UK, you will need to change plane in Istanbul. The domestic and international terminals are connected, so you will be able to walk between the two. All airport transfers will be private for your party. All our hotels in Istanbul are in the old district and are 10 minutes’ walk from Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque.

"Our holiday in Turkey exceeded our expectations. Cappadocia was interesting and beautiful. It was exciting staying in cave. Istanbul was amazing. We had very little previous experience of Turkey and Turkish people, so we enjoyed the beauty of the country and friendly hospitality of the people. We felt safe and not at all threatened in the city. The quality of food and service in restaurants was good. Efes beer is very tasty. We were a little confused on our first day in Istanbul as the tour details implied a bus tour, but all become clear when we realised how close all the sights were to our hotel. We had a memorable holiday. Thank you Akin."

Mr David Hyam, 19.5.2019

"Dear Mr. Koc,I've been meaning to write to you for some time, to say thank you for arranging such a wonderful holiday for us. We had 4 nights B&B at the Empire Palace Hotel in Istanbul, which was wonderfully central - with friendly, helpful staff - and then flew to Cappadocia, staying at the MDC Cave Hotel in Urgup, which was delightful. The location was outstanding and the hotel quite unique. We have travelled all over the world and I can safely say that this holiday was one of the best - full of new experiences including a trip in a hot-air balloon, visiting underground cities, ancient cave dwellings with amazing frescoes and fabulous landscapes. It was fun and exciting. For the first two days of tours in Cappadocia we went with the local representatives, who were excellent and our guide, Mustafa Sahin was outstanding. Thank you again for a brilliant trip and we will recommend your company. We may be interested in Croatia next year. Yours sincerely,"

"Sadly like many people our holiday for five people was cancelled due to Covid-19. The date of our holiday meant it was on, then off, then on and finally off again. Throughout all this I can't fault how Akin and his team dealt with all the hassle at a most difficult time for his company.  The refund was dealt with swiftly and our party can only thank everyone for all their help."  Mr Brian Chappell - 2 Jun 2020
