    Our family group of 4 adults and 2 kids (7 years and 9 years) enjoyed 6 days Istanbul, Cappadocia and Gallipoli tour very much. We learned so much about the history of Istanbul and Turkey, visited some amazing churches and mosques, and saw lots of beautiful views from the touristic places like Spice Bazaar, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace etc.
