Frequently Asked Questions

    • When and where does the tour end?

      This tour will end after breakfast on the last day of the tour at Ottoman Hotel Imperial in Istanbul at approximately 11 am. Please be aware the hotel is subject to change until your final documents are released.

    • When and where does the tour start?

      The first day of the tour generally starts from Arion Hotel in Athens and as the first day is just an arrivals day you can arrive at any time. There is, however, an informal meeting planned for the evening at approximately 7 pm so we recommend arriving beforehand so you can meet your group and fellow travellers. After the meeting, there is an optional group dinner you can choose to participate in.

      Please note that the joining point is subject to change until your final documents are released.

    • Do you arrange airport transfers?

      Travel Talk is unable to provide airport transfers so you will have to make your own way from and to the airports.

    • What are the optional excursions?

      The optional excursions for this tour are:

      Group Dinner in Athens
      Delos Island Tour
      Volcano Tour
      Quad Biking Tour
      Group Dinner in Istanbul
      Bosphorus Cruise
      Rafting
      Paragliding
      Turkish Bath
      Hot Air Ballooning

      Please note that this list is a guideline only and that pricing will be available with your finalised travel documents.

    • Can you assist with booking additional accommodation?

      Of course, we can! Once you have a confirmed booking on this tour, we can request additional accommodation for you with the tour operator.

    • I'm a solo traveller, is there a single supplement?

      A single supplement is available for this tour at an additional cost if you require a private room, please contact our Customer Support team to arrange this.

    • Are the flights included?

      Flights before and after the tour are not included in the tour price and you need to arrange these separately by yourself once your tour is guaranteed. As we specialise in organising the best tours around the world for you, we are unable to advise on flight prices or book flights on your behalf. If you have not already booked your flights we recommend checking out the following link which is powered by Skyscanner - https://flights.tourradar.com

      The flight from Santorini to Istanbul is included in the tour price.

    • Is there a hotel list available?

      All accommodations are subject to change until 4-6 weeks before the departure date, however, after your booking is finalised you will be issued with your final trip documents with your confirmed hotel list. To give you an idea of the type of accommodation TravelTalk uses on this tour, below is a list of the hotels that they generally use, but please be advised that they are subject to change:

      Arion Hotel - Athens
      Alex Hotel - Mykonos
      New Haroula Hotel - Santorini
      Ottoman Hotel Imperial - Istanbul
      Kolin Hotel - Canakkale
      Marina Hotel - Kusadasi
      Greenland Hotel - Fethiye
      Richmond Therman - Pamukkale
      Burcu Kaya Hotel - Cappadocia

      Hopefully, this list can give you a better idea of the kind of accommodations you can expect on tour.

    • How do we return to Athens at the end of the tour?

      As the tour ending point is different from the starting point, you will need to make your own way back to Athens if you have a return flight out of Athens.

    • What is the age range?

      Generally, Travel Talk's passengers tend to be between the ages of 18 and 39, however, they do welcome more mature travellers who are young at heart and up for a fantastic action-packed time.
      Unfortunately, children and young travellers under the age of 18 are not able to join the tour.
