14 day Turkey itinerary - please critique!

Jump to last reply

Hello, my husband and I are planning our upcoming 2 week honeymoon to Turkey and would love some feedback on our itinerary and answers to some random questions below. We're in our mid-30's and early 40's and I would characterize ourselves as independent travelers who don't mind splurging when it's worth it. My husband is most interested in history and seeing sights; I am slightly less interested in ruins and really want to enjoy a few days of solid R&R, eat incredible food, and absorb local culture. We plan to rent a car for the Izmir-Antalya part of our trip.

9/22 – Arrive Istanbul
9/23 – Istanbul
9/24 – Istanbul
9/25 – Early morning flight to Kayseri, Cappadocia
9/26 – Cappadocia
9/27 – 8:30pm flight Kayseri-Izmir, overnight in Selcuk
9/28 – Tour Ephesus in AM, then Aphrodisas in PM, overnight in Pamukkale
9/29 – Hierapolis, drive to Kas in late afternoon
9/30 – Kas
10/1 – Kas
10/2 – Kas
10/3 – Drive to Cirali, hike to Chimaera, overnight in Cirali
10/4 – Drive to Antalya, afternoon flight to Istanbul
10/5 – Istanbul
10/6 – Depart Istanbul

Questions:
In Cappadocia, should we arrange for a few daily tours or will be okay guiding ourselves? Would we need a rental car if self-guided? I don't love the big tourist bus tours but do believe that interpretation of sights by experts can be valuable.

Is the plan for 9/28 way too aggressive? We're planning to take in Ephesus and Aphrodisias and drive to Pamukkale all in one day.

How are the road conditions and drive from Pamukkale to Kas (my estimate is this will take ~5 hours)? The current plan is to drive to Kas after a day of hanging out in the sun and swimming in the pools; if the road is really treacherous, we may re-think this.

Recommendations for boat tours and operators out of Kas? Also, I've seen photos of people sea kayaking by underwater ruins - any ideas on where this is and how far from Kas?

Lodging recommendations for Cappadocia, Selcuk, Pamukkale, or Cirali? Our main criteria are cleanliness with en-suite bathroom and in safe area. We're planning to splurge on a villa rental in Kas.

I'm one of those people who loses it after they reach a certain point of hunger. Are there snack bars/food stands/restaurants in Aphrodisias, on the road to Pamukkale, and on the road to Kas (especially after 9pm)?

Thank you in advance!
