Turkey Adventure

From the volcanic slopes of Cappadocia to the ‘frozen waterfall’ at Pamukkale, Turkey is a country of contrasting landscapes and immense cultural riches. We visit the cosmopolitan city of Istanbul, explore the ancient site of Troy and white marble streets of Greco-Roman Ephesus. Our journey also takes us along the ‘Turquoise Coast’ of Lycia and to the beautiful golden sands of Iztuzu Beach.

Tour Highlights

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