Visiting Turkey 1st time... advice?
  • Hi,
    I will be travelling to turkey in the first two weeks of July (10 days). Currently my itinerary includes Istanbul, Cappadocia and Ephesus. We aren't that gung-ho about shopping, but we love adventure sports. I am a seasoned traveller. I had a few doubts and would be obliged if you would answer them.
    1) Is the Ephesus one day tour from Istanbul worth it? I went on trip advisor but couldn't find much. If you have had the experience, which one should I take?
    2) Vegetarian food. We are strict vegetarians (no meat, no fish) but not vegans (i.e we have milk and eggs). So will I be facing any problems related to food in any of the above places? If so do you have any suggestions?
    3) In Cappadocia which is the better place to stay - Urgup, Uchisar, Gerome or Cappadocia?
    4) Currency : We have a USD forex card (prepaid currency card). Will that work? Should we carry Euros too?
    5) How much cash should ideally one carry to Turkey?
    6) Bosphorus Night Cruise : I was wondering whether I should take the local cruise by my self or book a dinner cruise through a tour company.
    7) Is the black sea worth visiting from Istanbul?

    Any help will be truly appreciated.
    Thank you.
  • To be honest the 1 day tour from ?stanbul will be a very long day and not very long at Ephesus. Ephesus is amazing and worth spending more than a day trip there. ?n Sel
  • Thank you so much for your help
  • i dnt knw wat to do
  • You may face some issues with the food during your tours to Turkey I guess.
  • Why would Anksb have issues with food in Turkey? Turkish cuisine is very wide and contains many vegetable
    dishes suitable for vegetarians, Anksb certainly won't starve.
