Overview

Book
The more you see of Turkey, the more you realize you have yet to see. From the cosmopolitan delights of Istanbul to the Roman remains of Ephesus, you'll discover a country of fascinating contrasts. You'll cover a lot of ground in 15 days but still have plenty of time to stroll, shop and relax with a pot of apple tea.

Highlights

    • Cut through the chaos of Istanbul with a local guide who can show you things you would never find on your own
    • Take a visit to a Turkish Barber, an immersive local experience that isn't easily forgotten.
    • Feast your eyes on the best of Turkey's other-wordly sights, from the 'Cotton Castle' of Pamukkale to the psychedelic rockscapes of Cappadocia
    • The ancient art of felt-making is revealed by a craftswoman from Ikonium Studio, one of the two working galleries of UNESCo-honoured Turkish felt master Mehmet Girgic.
    • Keep your travel time to a minimum by flying directly from Istanbul to Goreme
    • Your 3-night 'feature stay' in Goreme is at one of the first boutique hotels in the region and boasts spectacular views from the rooftop terrace
    • Enter the world of Ephesus, possibly the greatest Greco-Roman site on the planet
    • A local fisherman and his wife will guide you around the hidden coves around Kekova Island, away from the crowds. Take time out on the boat to enjoy a local lunch of greens, zucchini fritters and a cool glass of local beer.
    • Take the opportunity for an invigorating Turkish bath. Nothing in the west quite compares to this refreshing and healing ancient ritual
    • Be invited into the Nuray Abla's kitchen, tucked away in the backstreets of Goreme - she'll offer you a homecooked meal straight from the potbelly stove.

If you are looking for an adventure rather than a holiday. If you like small groups of like minded travellers, staying in quaint little hotels and dining in small locally owned restaurants. If you want to really experience the locals and interact with them and you want to be relaxed but active Peregine is a great choice.

The Best of Turkey tour provides you with an excellent overview of this wonderful country. Time spent travelling in the bus is spaced out and on the couple of longer days, there were plenty of breaks to stretch your legs. One could use far more than 15 days as there is so much to see but what is covered in that time is extensive. The guides are great and always happy to answer any of your questions relating to their country.

OurTreasures of Turkey trip was fabulous. It included a good mix of local culture and ancient sites. On the first day our guide, Ozan, asked us what we were particularly interested in. As the whole group expressed an interest in trying the local foods, in most towns he took us to local restaurants to try the regions speciality foods - loved the Canakkale cheesecake, not so sure about the tripe soup! His knowledge of the history and the sites visited was superb, and to this he added some entertaining anecdotes. I would strongly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to understand Turkey as a country, past and present.
