29 day tour of Turkey with Cultural Folk Tours in March/April 2011. Our route goes from Istanbul due east to the Hittite ruins at Yazilikaya and along the coast of the Black Sea. From Amasya, we travel to the Silk Road Seaport of Trabzon, then inland through Kurdish villages, viewing the Euphrates River Valley from an 8K ft. summit as we head to the Turkish-Armenian border. We stay at Kars, visiting the fortified walls and Armenian Orthodox ruins at Ani, then skirt the Iranian border and Mt.Ararat on the way to Van (in the news after a major earthquake last year). We continue past Iraq, along the Syrian border to Urfa, birthplace of the prophet Abraham and a place of pilgrimage for both Christians and Muslims, driving up Mt. Nemrut for a hiking adventure. After taking a side trip to Ankara, we end this, the less-traveled part of the tour, in Cappadocia. By John & Gayle Swarbrick
