      Turkey Nov 24, 2015 at 11:15 PM

      We are wanting to do a Bosphorus Cruise in the late afternoon. Is there any such cruise that we can take from Kabatas at about 5:30 or 6 PM and then return to Kabatas / Eminou at around 10:30 - 1100 PM. What would be the best options available? We are not so keen on dinner etc, however commentary or at least an audio guide would be a must. Thanks in Advance

      Selcuk Nov 13, 2015 at 8:58 PM

      We are to arrive at Izmir Airport at around 10:20 am and wish to process to Selcuk where we are staying for a while. One reads that Izmir-Selcuk train (there is one at 11:45 am) is a cheap option and that the railway station at the Izmir Airport is easily accessible. However some reviewers have commented that the trains which start from Izmir are crowded and getting on them with luggage and then getting a seat is a problem. Is it really that bad? Anyone with personal experience to help us decide please?

      Goreme Nov 18, 2015 at 1:44 AM

      We are travelling to Goreme next May and will reach Goreme at about 4 pm. We plan to spend two clear days after that. After reading suggestions on VT, we have decided to take the Hot Air Balloon and the Green Tour on Day One. The next day we plan to NOT take a tour but take a Dolmus to Uchisar and hike down the Pigeon Valley in the morning. Later, take a Dolmus to Cavusin and go up to Red Valley Plateau and thereafter to Avanos, Pasabag and Zelve. Request for 1. Comments and Suggestions on the overall plan. Can we do anything better? 2. Guidance on the second day when would be on our own.3. On the day we arrive, we have some hours before sunset. What can be done during this period? Is there time enough to go to Love Valley? We do not wish to visit Goreme Open Air Museum. Thanks

      Are there any trains going from Erzurum to Kars

      by HORSCHECK Online Now May 10, 2015 at 2:59 AM


      I find it a bit difficult to find out if there are any trains going from Erzurum to Kars. At least I know that there used to be trains until 2014. The homepage of the Turkish State Railways ( is not really helpful to me as most info is only in Turkish and the English part is very limited.

      I know that there are buses going between these cities but I would prefer to go by train if possible.

      So any help is much appreciated.

      Hi, i am looking for a furnished holiday house for 19 people (12 adults, 7 children)from about 20/03/2012 to 05/04/2012 in Erzurum, Turkey.
      Are there flights from Istanbul to Erzurum?
      How do you get from Iran to Erzurum? is it trains to Van and then coach? if yes, how frequent are the coaches (connection between train and coach), and how long by coach from van to erzurum?
      4 of us are coming from Australia, and the rest from Iran for a family reunion. we were going to go to Van, but the earthquake happened. we want it to be fairly close to Iran and also have flights to Istanbul. so we are considering Erzurum. is that a good choice? any other suggestions? any help is appreciated.

      Long Term Accommodation

      by ardelean Online Now Jul 29, 2005 at 5:53 AM

      I am coming to work in Erzurum in the autumn. what is the cost of flat suitable for a batchelor from western europe - microwave and washing machine essential. bed maybe? I got a flat in Sofia for €300 and one in Tirana for USD 250 per month plus utilities, so I am used to living in different countries. I guess heating in the winter would be a majorconcern..

      Oltu-Erzerum road

      by rjaparidze Online Now Jun 28, 2004 at 1:47 AM

      Hi All has anyone traveled on a road from Erzerum to Oltu. My understanding is that there are two roads: one through south (through Kaledidi turning to the right) and the other north (through Aksu). My questions are the following: 1. Is it possible to travel through a northern route? (passing Aksu, Basbaglar, Camlibel, etc…) and how long it takes to pass? 2. Are there any sightseeings on the southern route and how long it takes getting to Oltu? (from Erzerum) Thanks R
