Historical Tour of Turkey

From the modern capital of Ankara to the ancient ruins of Ephesus we explore the very best of Turkey’s sites, whilst staying in comfortable hotels. We travel to the volcanic landscape of Cappadocia to discover the underground city of Kaymakli and explore Goreme with its ‘fairy chimneys’ and rock-cut houses. We also visit the white travertines of Pamukkale, walk around historic Istanbul and admire the spectacular scenery of the Turquoise Coast.

Tour Highlights

  • Cappadocia - Explore this unique landscape of enchanting valleys, 'fairy chimneys' and cave dwellings
  • Ephesus - Walk the marble streets where Saint Paul preached to the Ephesians
  • Pamukkale and Hieropolis - Admire the white, travertine terraced hillside and explore the remains of the Roman spa town above
  • Turquoise Coast - Swim in the warm waters that give this stunning coastline its name
  • Istanbul - Discover the magic of 'Old Stamboul' on foot, including the Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace
