It was almost like being in a living history class as we toured the many archaeological sites of Turkey. It was a large group of 36 or 37 people but everyone was on time and very friendly. We arrived in Istanbul in the late …
Colleen and I spent four to five hours touring Topkapi Palace. The grounds are large and the buildings impressive with all of the tile work and Ottoman architecture.
