Greetings all! I just signed up for the Best of Turkey Tour from March 28 till April 9th - excited to be going on my first Rick Steves tour! In 2019 I did my first major travelling abroad with my sister - 9 weeks and 16 countries in Europe, and in almost every place, I used Rick Steves guides and audio tours - everything went so smoothly and it was fantastic! (Soo lucky we planned for 2019 instead of 2020 - PHEW!) We did a day trip to Bodram, Turkey from Greece and I was surprised at how 'Western' and modern it was. Really excited to get to see Istanbul finally, on my bucket list, and also other fascinating places in Turkey!
I heard there are three other solo ladies on this tour so far, so we'll be roomies! :-D I'm about to book a room for the day before the tour and the last night of the tour in Istanbul, so if any of you solo ladies see this, let me know if you'd like to share those days too!
Anyone with experience on this tour, feel free to offer tips! Is there rocky terrain, should I bring hiking boots or will comfy sneakers do plus open toe sandals do?
