An active traveller’s heaven: rugged coast, bizarre inland geography and a continent-crossing capital
Tours in Turkey
An excellent Mediterranean climate, kilometres of unspoilt beaches, mountains, lakes, fascinating towns and villages, and a treasure house of historic and archaeological sites… Turkey holidays are filled with adventure. The places we visit are world-renowned: Istanbul, Ephesus, Cappadocia, Gallipoli and Troy, and each has an undisputed place in world history.
Rightly touted as a country of wonderful beaches and coastline, Turkey is also home to untouched mountains and lakes. In the phenomenon of Pamukkale’s limestone ‘cotton castles’ and Cappadocia’s strange geological formations, nature displays its penchant for the beautiful and bizarre. Less well known, perhaps, is that Turkish food is rated as one of the world’s great cuisines, but without doubt, some of the best memories on Turkey tours will come from contact with the local population, who are renowned for their charm, hospitality and friendliness.
