About This Trip

Experience this immense historical journey through the ages as you discover the intimate beauty of Turkey. The incredible historical sites are wrapped in natural beauty with beautiful coastlines with rugged cliffs and endless, white beaches, and the ancient towns and cities are brimming with architectural beauty and vibrant, ultra-friendly culture. 

 

The only city in the world that spreads across two continents, Istanbul is a historical crossroads, packed with a vast amount of attractions. This is where your tour starts and from here we head into a time-travelling adventure that will provide so many jaw-dropping moments. Visit Ephesus, the most complete ancient city in Europe, and the UNESCO site of Pergamon, whose Asklepion Temple dates back to the 4th Century B.C. You will visit more recent history when you pay your respects to those who lost their lives in WWII on the beaches of Gallipoli and you will explore the fascinating city carved from the rock in Cappadocia. 

 

Interspersed amongst these sites is the dramatic and entirely beautiful scenery of Turkey, hemmed in by the glittering deep turquoise of the Mediterannean and backed by rugged mountains. We leave no stone unturned in bringing you the perfect discovery of the outstanding ancient powerhouse that is Turkey.

highlights

Turkey is so underrated. To many people in Europe, it is simply somewhere with lovely beaches, and they are right, the beaches are out of this world, but there is so much wonder in Turkey that we wanted to create a tour that showcased it all.  

 

There are very few countries that fuse incredible ancient sites with stunning, ever-changing scenery. Every site you visit will be in the company of a knowledgeable guide who will be able to tell you the history, talk you through the happenings of millennia, and also be able to sort you out with the best restaurant in town. We want to show you everything, from the obvious highlights of Ephesus, Cappadocia and Istanbul, to those lesser-known sites of Pergamon and Mevlana. 

 

And we don’t want you to miss out on the magical culture, so there are visits to fruit-wineries, carpet makers and some of the best museums in all of Europe. If you want to dig deep in Turkey, this is the tour for you.


location

The tour begins and ends in Istanbul, so it is well serviced by many international carriers. From Istanbul, you will head to Gallipoli, then to Pergamon and the remarkable Ephesus before heading to the coast and the town of Fethiye. We continue down the coast to Antalya before heading inland to Konya and Cappadocia before returning to Istanbul.
