Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest round-trip airfare between New York City and Istanbul starts from $593 in mid-February (United Airlines). Add to that $47 per person for the flight from Istanbul to Izmir, $56 per person for the flight from Izmir to Cappadocia, and $47 per person for the flight from Cappadocia to Istanbul, plus $106 per person including taxes for two nights at the Charisma Deluxe Hotel Kusadasi, $179 per person including taxes for two nights at the Gamirasu Cave Hotel, and $290 per person including taxes for two nights at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Istanbul Moda. When purchased separately, you'd be spending $1,318, while this package gives you the same perks plus airport transfers, daily breakfast, four dinners, three guided tours, and covers hotel and air taxes and fees for $319 less.
