At the end of RS Best of Turkey tour on Sept. 16, 2023, it’s cheaper for us to fly to miami from istanbul rather than Izmir but how would we get from the end of the tour in Kusadasi to Istanbul (bus, train) and how long and at what cost? We dont need to go to Istanbul for a longer visit as we are doing that on the front end of the tour. Perhaps it would not be cheaper by the time we add on the transportation to Istanbul? Or just not worth the bother?
On the final morning of your tour, the tour bus can take you (no charge) from the tour hotel in Kusadaşi to the airport in Izmir, in time for a late morning flight. Alternately, we stayed an extra night in Kusadaşi and the hotel arranged a driver to take us to the airport for 60 Euros.
From Izmir, we flew home. You could take a flight from Izmir to Istanbul.
We flew to Istanbul at the end of the tour. You should be able to catch a late morning flight and catch a flight out of Istanbul. We took a flight out in the early afternoon and spent a day in Istanbul and flew out the next day.
