Turkey Trip Itineraries

Best of Things to do as a Family

Destination(s): Istanbul

When I say "Let the children enjoy the history and the city in their own way," I definitely do not mean, "suffer along with the kids as they run around wildly". I mean to suggest a few activities that can be a lot of fun as you do with your kids and which will also capture the essence of the city.
Besides, most of these activities are things that the locals do. Therefore, they will also help you understand the local life as well. read more about Best of Things to do as a Family

GeziYAK is a tour operator, which has established its existence on the following philosophy: Travelling is living. As such, the tour organizes a variety of different tours with different purposes and themes into different parts of Istanbul, Turkey and the greater world. The main focus of most tours is connecting deeper with nature. Thus, most tours include a bit of trekking and walking around; such as rafting and trekking trips to K鞿r蓷y and Antalya, the Taurus Rangers region on the Mediterranean, as well as skin and scuba diving expeditions to Saros and ドnakkale. Nevertheless, there are also gastronomic tours, such as discovering authetic tastes in the old center of Istanbul; daily culture-oriented tours in Istanbul, aiming at finding more about niche activities of the city's artisans and its culture; ski trips to almost all of the ski resorts in Turkey; and a variety of thematic tours such as Valentine Day's tours.

Adalar (Princes' Islands)

Adalar (Princes' Islands)

  • Adalar
  • Istanbul

In Turkish, "adalar" simply means "islands" - though adalar are very familiar territory for Istanbulites, which island you are referring to is still quite important since many Istanbullites use the islands as their summer residence and have a genuine circle of relatives and friends there. Probably the most popular day trip option from Istanbul, at least in the summer, the Princes' Islands are comprised of seven small islands, four of which (Bykada, K覺nal覺ada, Burgazada and Heybeliada) have constant summertime service by ferry from Kabata and Bostanci. The islands offer treasures of history (Byzantine churches and Greek and Turkish ruins), green parks, and various upscale restaurants and hotels. As no cars are allowed onto the islands, you would be better off renting a horse-backed carriage to go from one part to another; or to arrive on the islands dressed casually and renting a bike. The islands are a wonderful retreat from bustling Istanbul, each with its own unique character and pace of life. read more about Adalar (Princes' Islands)
