a) It will spend night 3 in Konya.

b) Day 4 it will travel to Pamukkale, via Sagalassos.

c) Day 5 tour Pamukkale and Aphrodisias.

d) Day 6 Ephesus Tour.

e) Day 7 It will travel to Istanbul via Bursa and visit Ulu Camii and the Silk Bazaar. So, in 2019, it will not visit Pergamum, Troy or Gallipoli, whilst Sagalassos and Bursa have been added.
