I am planning to surprise my wife on our wedding anniversary with a travel tour package gift. I am interested in travel to Turkey. Which places are good to visit in Turkey with my wife? Can any one share your traveling experience in Turkey.

You can book a tour or do it yourself from a resort using local travel agents.

Turkey has got a lot of history and has got it's act together as far as travel is concerned. Lots of goods tours available at reasonable prices.

Some places worth visiting:

Be aware that Turkey can get very hot in summer (so air conditioned rooms are good. Some have AC installed in rooms but you pay extra to use it) and that sites like Ephesus involve lots of walking about in the open.

One tour I took was Priene and some other places. One place we visited, we drove up a small mountain, walk further (easy walking) and then there is a the ruins of a temple. Further on, there was a path with the stone outlines of where houses had been long ago. We were told that Alexander the Great had stayed in the end one and moored his boat just a bit further on. Except that now, where there once was sea, there is now a valley stretching out below and the sea is now some miles away.

Many visit the springs and spa baths at Pamukkale. Take along swimming costumes if you do.
