Are you signed up for the Rick Steves Best of Turkey or Best of Istanbul tour? Maybe even both! Perhaps you're thinking of signing up? Do you have questions? I did before I took back to back Best of Istanbul and Best of Turkey tours in May and June of 2022.
I'll use this post to assemble common tour questions and to reference answers in helpful forum topics. If your tour question isn't answered, feel free to ask it here. Or post your own question separately so that you'll get an email each time someone responds - if you have chosen that forum setting.
What's In This For Me?
I get to relive one of my favorite trips by looking back through my pictures and notes to answer questions and read answers from others. I fell in love with Turkey and I hope you will as well!!
Everyone is Welcome!
Whether you're signed up for the tour in 2023, took one of the tours in the past or just love traveling to Turkey, please feel free to answer questions and add your own question/answers and topic references for future tour members.
