Trip to Istanbul

  • Oct 9, 2013 · 7:00 PM

Turkish Air currently has a promotional deal to Istanbul from DC. A round trip flight is $575! I was hoping to find a cool group to go sometime mid-November!

Sounds like a great opportunity for 1000 things to do before you die!

    Late to the convo, but Istanbul is a big target for me. I'm down for something in summer 2014.

    Here are some other trip ideas: http://www.groupon.com/washington-dc/getaways?d=travel_countmein

    This is following Pam's comment about Groupon. There are some pretty cool ideas for places to go. I'm not sure I can make Turkey happen right now. I'd like to plan something for after the holidays...anyone else interested?

    Can't do Turkey, my trip for this year is Tanzania at year end. However I wonder if many folks in this group are members of Groupon. Great trips are always offered there, and with coordination, there are many exciting possibilities.

    According to Cheapoair there are flights from the 14th-26th of November for $658 including taxes. This could potentially include a 7 hour layover in Munich, which I think would be fun.

    If there are people who are seriously interested, express it here and we can find a time/place to meet in person to discuss

    Hi, I'm new to the group and would love to find more about the Turkey Trip :-)

    I went to Turkey twice in the past 4 years, if you are a shop-aholic, get ready to bring your savings money because you will need it, they have great bargains!!! visit the Bazaar but I don't think you will be thrilled with what they sell, don't miss out on Hagia Sofia...went there during Ramadan once and it was still awesome, great people, great food, excellent shopping !!!
