Subject: Re:Son in Turkey
I haven't got my travelog ready to put on the list, but when we were in Istanbul in July, the standard bus time to Gallipoli/Troy was 5-6 hours each way. We didn't have time or enough people to make the trip economical at that time. However, we arranged a 1-and a half hour flight (and return) to Izmir, with 2 nights at a very nice Pine Resort Hotel in Kusadasi, 2 meals per day, and a full-day guided tour of Ephesus, all for a little less than $250 per person. Great bargain! Our friends were able to book this through an agency in Istanbul. These agencies are everywhere. Good luck to your son. He's very lucky!
