This is a land tour, that is, you can
fly into Tel Aviv from your country in a flight schedule that suits your travel
plans. So, you would take care of your airfare, but do not purchase your
airline ticket until we say the tour is a go, as we have to have a minimum
number for the tour to travel. By allowing you to
purchase your flight, there will not be a connecting issue in New York trying to
make the gate in time for Israel, as we ran into this previously. Those
who live in distant countries would leave April 18, and those who live in Europe
could fly out April 19, with both groups arriving in Tel Aviv on April 19.
You would take a short taxi ride to our hotel and would acclimate that day to
the new time. If you arrive early and have the energy, you could do some
of your own sightseeing. Supper is provided on April 19 at the hotel, then
the next morning of April 20 we head out on the bus.
Breakfast and supper provided on the tour, but you are responsible for lunch.

April 28 Arrange your own flight to arrive in Istanbul
at IST airport. Those flying from USA will need to leave April 27. (Do not fly
to SAW airport in Istanbul.) (For our tour group members leaving Israel, take
Turkish Airlines flight 865 from Tel Aviv, leaving at 8:40 am and arriving at
10:55 am, but do not purchase this flight until we know we have enough travelers
for the Israel tour. We will let you know when to purchase your arrival
ticket. If we do not have the Israel tour, we will only have the Turkey
tour.) The hotel in Istanbul is our gathering point, so take a quick taxi
from the airport for $10-$15.00 to the hotel. If you wish to tour the old city
section of Istanbul you can leave your bag at the hotel, front desk if you
arrive early, and take a taxi to the Hagia Sophia Mosque, the Blue Mosque,
Topkapi Palace, and the hippodrome with obelisks which are near each other and have many
tourists in the area. This would be at your own expense. A taxi ride is about
$75.00 or so one way. We have travelers arriving at different times today, so
we cannot arrange a formal tour for this. You must arrive in Istanbul this
day. When you sign up for the tour we will give you more arrival tips.
April 29 Leaving the hotel early, we go to the domestic
airport via our airport transfer and fly to eastern Turkey where our guide will
be waiting for us upon arrival. (Baggage allowance is 44 pounds or 20
kilos for domestic flights.) We drive one hour and check in to our hotel in Dogubayazit, which is the second nicest
hotel in the area, but hotels here are not as
fancy as in metropolitan areas. (Each room has its own bathroom with shower.) Then we head to the ark visitors center, and
some may wish to go down to the ark. It can be a strenuous walk, so those who have
walking difficulties may wish to remain at the visitor’s center area and wait
for tomorrow’s opportunity. If you are in this classification, bring along
some binoculars to gaze upon the ark.
April 30 We spend most of the day at the ark, walking
around the structure and making note of the man-made features. If we have time
we will stop by the Ishak Pasha Palace which is an iconic landmark in the area,
built in the 18th century. If you wish to tour the palace we will
be there 45 minutes.
May 1 We head to the sea anchors which once hunged from the
ark and are now at The Village of Eight. We will also see several in the
countryside and will be doing some walking. Also, we will go to the area where
Noah once lived and see the large altar stone overlooking the valley below. It
was here that he gave great words of wisdom, direct from the antediluvian
world. We will visit the home of one of the villager elders that we are friends
with and he will offer us Chi Tea.
May 2 We leave eastern Turkey early and fly to Istanbul
arriving around 11:35 am at the IST airport where the tour ends at this point. Those who sign
up for the tour will receive more info and tips for flying back to the USA.
