On this trip to Turkey, we shall visit the important palaces, mosques, museums and tourist attractions in Istanbul and enjoy the scenic beauty of Cappadocia, Pamukkale and Goreme, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The program covers the historical site of the Greek acropolis of Pergamum and the Roman ruins in Ephesus and Aphrodisias. Also included is a visit to Ankara's Museum of Anatolian Civilizations. Participants will enjoy a performance of the Whirling Dervishes in Sahuran as well as a cruise on the Bosphorus, the strait that separates Asia and Europe.
Owing to the overwhelming response from members to the trip announcement last September, we decided to operate two parallel tours, instead of just one. As both tours are fully subscribed, the waiting list is now closed. We are grateful to members for their enthusiastic participation which gives our committee a greater incentive to plan for more exciting trips in the future. Thank you!
