Overview

Book
Historically rich with its medieval Ottoman period and chronicle of Gallipoli, and fashionably chic with the cosmopolitan buzz of Istanbul and celebrity getaway of Antalya, Turkey is an unmissable country that overflows with character. It is where Noah’s Ark (allegedly) landed, Santa Claus originated and Hemingway was inspired. It's a place where the yin and yang of old and new complement each other - contemporary galleries stand next to cathedrals, stylish cafes sit alongside bazaars and trendsetting bars float over turquoise waters. Travel from Istanbul through the very best of Turkey - Gallipoli, Fethiye, Pamukkale, Antalya, Cappadocia and Mount Nemrut - and discover the people, history, cuisine and landscapes that make this destination such a treasure.

Highlights

    • Explore the continent-straddling metropolis of Istanbul, and step back in time to when it was Constantinople with the backstreets of the Grand Bazaar, the majestic Blue Mosque, and in the taste of real Turkish Delight.
    • Reflect on battles fought and lives lost with a moving visit to the Gallipoli Peninsula, a serene stretch of coastline where it's now hard to picture the horrors of war.
    • Hike into the Valley of Love in Cappadocia and be wowed by the fantastical natural sculptures of spires, domes, and pinnacles.
    • Be lured by the sapphire waters of the Mediterranean and laze the days away in Antalya.
    • Meet eyes with the ruins of the colossal stone heads that sit atop Mount Nemrut.

Overall, our Turkey Explored, was excellent thanks to our tour leader Suleyman. His knowledge, personality and thoughtfulness made the trip memorable. Walking shoes are recommended plus hat, sunglasses, sunscreen and a sense of humour as you are travelling with the same people for 18 days.

Great trip, wonderful country. A surprise is just around the corner. The whole of Turkey 15 day museum pass (185 T lira) for this trip saved us at least £30 each. Could be more if you did every museum opportunity. It saved time at the sites not queuing for tickets. Buy when you get to Ephesus so can use it on last day back in Istanbul. Time in Istanbul once orientated worked well for us.
