More about Turkey Discover Turkey

Turkey has to be one of the tastiest countries in the Middle East. For starters, its delicious cuisine takes its cues from Europe and Asia. Then there's the extraordinary landscapes and stunning historic sites. You're probably going to want to explore Istanbul, pay your respects in Gallipoli, see the thermal pools of Pamukkale, discover the underground world of Cappadocia and more, but there are two more things you should do in Turkey:
  1. Drink a real Turkish coffee. This isn't just a heart-starter in the morning, it's a ritual that should be savoured and appreciated in a local cafe.
  2. Try a Turkish bath, or hammam. You'll be steamed, scrubbed and pounded in the quest for wellness, but it will be worth it and it's one of those things you need to do at least once in your life!
Treasure the many amazing experiences and delights of Turkey on this fully-escorted 11-night tour. Travel by air-conditioned coach, stay in top 4-star hotels and enjoy being looked after all the way by experienced guides. Visit the places you won't want to miss, like ANZAC Cemetery at Gallipoli, the classical city of Troy, stunning white travertine terraces of Pamukkale and the incredible lunar-like landscapes of Cappadocia.

Is this tour right for you?

This moderately active program covers a good amount of ground each day. Expect from three to four hours walking on some touring days, as well as early starts. The pace is moderate, however a majority is over uneven surfaces, stairs, steps and significant slopes. Bus rides to Ankara and Istanbul are approximately seven to eight hours, and rides to Gallipoli, Antalya, and Cappadocia are approximately four to five hours. Those who are claustrophobic or have preexisting knee or back conditions may want to avoid visiting the Underground Cities in Cappadocia. Passageways are narrow and may require crouching to navigate. Some hotels in Cappadocia are built in the traditional local style and have no air-conditioning. During heat waves, these hotels can become uncomfortable, even at higher elevations.

Important to remember...

The day-by-day tour descriptions are intended as an indicative guide only. Travel by nature is unpredictable. Weather patterns, sea or river conditions, road accessibility, public holidays, travel restrictions and a multitude of other factors may necessitate itinerary changes that are ultimately for the client's benefit. It is essential that travellers are flexible and open minded in this regard.
