Turkey Tours

Turkey tours are a pilgrimage of culture, history, adventure fun and relaxation. Join us and visit a country known as “the cradle of civilisation” being that the soils have seen many of the great empires and civilisations in history. Anatolian cities are said to be among the earliest human settlements in the world, from the miraculously preserved monuments of the Hellenistic-Roman civilizations to the path to Noah’s ark. Whatever it is you are looking for in an adventure or tour, Turkey has it all. Want history? Feel centuries of history beneath your feet as you walk through the ancient ruins of Ephesus, where the Temple of Artemis stands, which is one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World; or visit the beautiful Ihlara valley, where early Christians escaping Roman Soldiers took up settlement, carving hundreds of churches and underground cities into the unique rock formations. Then the diverse landscapes of Turkey from the cities to the coastline, mountains and lakes lend plenty of opportunity for variety and activities for the adventurous traveller. No travel experience is complete without sampling some of the local cuisine. We have done all of the hard work for you, and have sourced some of the best hotels which provide an exquisite array of traditional Turkish cuisine, and then the inside knowledge of our experienced guides will point you in the right direction for meals that aren’t included. From the history, sights and sounds, to the company and atmosphere; our Turkey tours combine it all to create that authentic travelling experience.

During Ramadan you are encouraged to show your respect by not walking around in public eating, chewing gum, smoking or drinking. It is fine to do so in your hotel or in a cafe/restaurant recommended by your tour leader. Your tour leader will organise lunches and dinners which will make Ramadan easier for you. During the month you will find that tourist sites often close early to allow staff to return home in time to break their fast and shops often open late and close early. Ramadan Calendar
