Istanbul is unlike any city in the world. And it has been so for thousands of years.

From Byzantium to Constantinople to Istanbul, this city, located on either side of the glistening blue Bosphorus strait has come a long way. Along the way, it embraced the art, culture and lifestyle of its conquerors. Modern day Istanbul is home to more than 20 ethnic groups and is a culmination of multiple influences. No matter who you are, it welcomes you warmly.

Picturesque mosques, churches, fort, boulevards and bustling bazaars are testament to Istanbul’s rich culture. The delightful Turkish cuisine takes sweets and meats to the next level. If the day gets tiring, you can always have a cup of the famous Turkish tea to rejuvenate yourself.

As you explore this historic city, somewhere between the intricate blue designs of the mosques and the aromas of the bazaars, you lose yourself.

It is the responsibility of the lead name to provide current copies of all passports for the party and to notify us if any member of the party has a passport (or UAE residence visa if applicable) due to expire with  6 months of the arrival back in the UAE post-travel.

A booking can only be made once the deposit or full payment has been received. All bookings made within 12 weeks of departure will be subject to full payment. All services are subject to availability at the time of booking, which may differ from the time of quotation. Prices are also subject to change and cannot be guaranteed until payment has been received and the booking confirmed. For air travel, this means tickets issued. For hotel bookings, this means accommodation vouchers issued. It is important that all vouchers are read carefully for additional supplier information.

PRICING

We offer you the flexibility to create your own holiday from the range of accommodation, airlines and other services available. Because of this wide choice, it is not possible to list every price on every date. A ‘from’ price is indicative of the lowest price available for the hotel or itinerary featured but this may vary depending on a number of factors such as your date of travel, number of people sharing a room, choice of accommodation and airline availability.

The rates at some hotels may vary depending on your residency and therefore it is important that you confirm the residency and nationality of everyone travelling at the time of quotation.

All prices are subject to availability and final confirmation from the supplier. Certain airlines permit us as their agent to hold reservations for a certain amount of time without tickets being issued. It is important to note that in these instances, the fares are only guaranteed until 2359 that day and we are not liable in the event of an increase. We, therefore, recommend that tickets are issued on the same day as the reservation. Some airports charge a departure tax, which is payable locally. These charges may not be claimed back from us.

Additional information on our supplier's pricing policy can be found in their booking conditions.

Their policy regarding alterations is set out in their booking conditions.

Should you find it necessary to cancel or amend your holiday, please contact us without delay. Cancellations and amendments require written confirmation by the lead name in the party. Prior to making any changes, please verify any charges bearing in mind that these generally increase the closer you get to departure. In most cases, late cancellation will result in 100% charges.
