Turkey Travel Plans....need help!

Jump to last reply

Well, we have purchasd our airfare, now we need to start planning.

We are planning to fly into Instabul for a three week stay in Turkey. Thought we would spend a few days in Istanbul recouperating from our flight, then off ot Cappadocia for three nights. First question, where is the best place to stay to see the sights in Cappadocia and sould we take a tour or hire a guide for a day? After this, we are planning on flying to Izmir. Can anyone recommond a area to stay while visiting Ephesus, and once again do we need to take a tour or can we do it ourselves. After spending two nights near Ephesus, we would like to spend a week or so on or near the Mediterranean. Could someone recommend a place that we would be able to fly from Izmir. I have looked at some spots but it seems you cannot fly from Izmir (example Bodrum). Would we best head for Antayla and find somewhrere there, and if so, can someone recommend a town or village on the water that perhaps we could drive to after renting a care at the airport in Antayla.

The other thing, as we are travelling from Canada, would we be better off hiring a travel agency in Turkey to do all of our internal flights and transfers, or is it possible to do it ourselves online using Sun Express and Turkish Airlines. After looking at Sun Express, it seems they only fly from Cappadocia to Izmir a few times a week and we would have to be very careful planning our arrivals and departures in order to still have 3 days in Cappadocia.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. As we don't speak Turkish, will we have any trouble in the aforemented sites I mentioned that we want to visit?

Many thanks in advance for any help!
