 Escorted Tour   

16 days 

cancelled due to corona virus

Turkey has long been a favourite destination of ours, to which we have introduced many travellers over the years.Situated at the cross roads of Asia and Europe, Turkey is the treasure trove of a dozen civilizations and a diverse cultural heritage.  We will visit Istanbul with thousands of years of history, beautiful architecture and exciting bazaars abounding with jewelry, leather goods and carpets. Explore famous archaeological sites, the surrealist landscapes of Cappadocia and travel along the enchanted shores of the Mediterranean coast. For those who have already visited Turkey, our programme offers some new insights into the country and its people.

The tour will be escorted by our experienced tour leader, who will take care of everything, including keeping track of luggage and handling all the tipping. We will also be accompanied by professional English speaking Turkish tour guides. Our 3+/4* hotels have facilitated this great value for money offering to a truly unique destination. 

 Join us on a tour of discovery and enchantment - into the Heart of Turkey!
