This is followed by a wonderful massage using a special bath glove called "Kese", hot water and soap. The effects of the massage leaves the skin pink and tingling while creating a relaxed, pleasantly light and refreshed feeling. 
 In the lobby of the Bath a deluxe open buffet can be set up with an exotic belly dancer to entertain. Cleansed both physically and mentally, wined, dined and entertained a Turkish Bath is an experience not to be missed.

The Bazaar, with its labyrinth of streets and shops is the perfect choice for a treasure hunt. Participants are given clues to find their way through the streets, points are earned by answering a questionnaire. The winning team is rewarded with a trophy and surprise gift.

The finishing line is Sultan Ahmet Square nearby a famous Turkish restaurant just on time for a well-earned lunch. A prize-giving celebration is held in the evening.

 A traditional Turkish marriage is a long process lasting several days. This show tries to enliven the rich cultural traditions and rituals surrounding the event. Decors, old dresses, most common festivities and rituals before the marriage, folk dances, special rhymes and songs are used to give one a glimpse of Turkish folk heritage.
THE JANISSARY BAND:
 The Janissary Band is thought to have been invented by a Seljuk Sultan from Anatolia in the 13th century. The music and songs of war, loud, strong and forceful encouraged the army into battle while it scared the enemy into retreat. An impressive display of the Janissary Band can be seen at the military museum in Harbiye, and this show can be performed at any other large indoor or outdoor venue.
