Will is an elderly man out of Toronto, Canada. As a hard working citizen and a responsible human being, he has led a very successful life ever since his early youth years. This characteristic of him has enabled him to take great care of his family by providing them with any and every means of comfort available to them. He has been a very giving parent as well, managing to raise two amazing children who built their own families and have come to respect him a great deal as their elder. Since he retired a couple of years ago, though, he has been feeling rather empty – given the sudden realization of the fact that he divided his entire life time between his work and family, leaving practically no room for self care. After discussing the issue thoroughly with his wife and children, he decides to take a long and detailed trip to Turkey with them – to the ultimate destination his son and his family took a trip to a few years back, with the help of Travel Booking Turkey by Imperial Travel Turkey who specialize in fully customized journeys for Will’s 21 Days in Turkey.
With the help of his travel agent who takes him through the entire process of planning and booking with every single detail he needs to have, he settles on the most extensive package that they have – the 21 Days Turkey Tour with private arrangements like exclusive guidance and transportation for himself and his entire extended family on Will’s 21 Days in Turkey. Everything is taken care of from the very first moment that they set foot in the airfield in Istanbul. Their agent meets them at their pre-arranged hotel, gives them a full briefing of the trip ahead over a warm cup of Turkish coffee. Their tour begins on day 2 with a glorious Old City Tour in Istanbul which shows them around the greatest highlights of the Historical Penninsula and continues on through the two relatively close-by epic destinations of Gallipoli and Troy on their third and fourth days for some refreshment of knowledge of mankind’s both ancient and recent history. Day 5 and 6 are allocated for some of the greatest and most perfectly preserved ancient cities in the Aegean region, including the port town Ephesus which is home to marvels like the Temple of Artemis which happens to be one of the 7 Ancient Wonders of the World. After taking a boat trip to relax on the gorgeous Aegean Sea on day 7, they move to Pamukkale on day 8 – which is one of the oldest healing centres in the world and apparently the source of Cleopatra’s eternal beauty which captivated the Romans. Day 9 sees them arriving in the peaceful coastal town of Marmaris where they board the beautiful gulet in order to begin the most thrilling part of their journey: a 4-day voyage along the coasts of Aegean and Mediterranean seas. Their breath taking sailing cruise ends on day 13 where they stay overnight in Fethiye. The Saklikent (Hidden City) trip marks their forthnight in Will’s 21 Days in Turkey and their last full day in Fethiye. On day 15, they head over to Antalya – a city filled to the brim with amazing historical and natural highlights to visit during their Perge, Aspendos & Side Tour. After a transfer via Konya – the adopted home of the man of peace and renown ancient poet Rumi – their journey continues onward in Cappadocia – the land of beautiful horses. Having extensive trips into the heart of massive underground cities, ancient settlements and churches carved into rocks, gorgeous valleys covered in the unusual lunar landscape and an unforgettable hot air-balloon tour over all of these for a unique perspective is the highlight of their trip, especially with the world-renown cuisine and the free time they use to discover the rest of these unique lands by themselves. They return to Istanbul on day 20 and finalize their shopping before their departure next day. On the 21st day, they take a half-day morning Bosphorus Cruise – simply because it would not have been a proper trip to Turkey without visiting the famous canal which makes Istanbul so strategically important. After their cruise, they are taken to the airport for their return flight home – with long lasting smiles on their faces as a great result of the memories they amassed throughout Will’s 21 Days in Turkey.
