ISTANBUL: A CITY TRIP FOR THE SENSES AT THE CROSSROADS OF EUROPE AND ASIA
The Turkish city of Istanbul is an exciting mix of East and West, spiced with exotic flavours so that this colourful incentive will remain in the memory of your clients for a long time to come. Istanbul stands on the threshold of its year as Cultural Capital of Europe 2010. It is a heady mix of the atmosphere of the days of the sultans and trendy shops and exclusive night clubs. This four-day trip focuses on discovery and pleasure.
After arriving at the airport, and after lunch, your guests will be taken on an exploratory tour by a Dutch-speaking guide. In the evening, guests are transferred by private boat to the authentic Kiz Kulesi (the Maiden’s Tower), built on an islet in the Bosphorus, where a welcome dinner awaits you.
The next day, we treat you to a historic visit in horse-drawn carriages, a dip into an authentic hamam and an exclusive “sultan’s excursion” in vintage automobiles. On the last evening, a farewell dinner awaits your guests in the Kervansaray Restaurant, accompanied by infectious live music and belly dancers.
We bring the last day to a close in total beauty: with a visit to the world-famous Topkapi Palace of the sultans, complete with an exclusive three-course dinner and naturally, a few hours to shop in the lively Grand Bazaar.
