Turkey Adventure Tours
Straddling two continents, Turkey offers a fascinating blend of European and Asian cultures. Steeped in Christian and Islamic history and shining with modern energy, our Turkey adventure tours offer access to some of the world’s most important ancient monuments and historic sites as well as some of the most exciting contemporary cities. Greco-Roman wonders such as Ephesus with its 25,000 seat theatre, Pamukkale’s ‘cotton castle’ travertines, the flaming Chimaera at Olympos, the delicate fairy chimneys of Cappadoccia and the poignant Anzac battlefields of the Gallipoli Peninsula rank among the many highlights of a Turkey adventure tour. Cosmopolitan Istanbul is the jewel in the crown, numbering the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, the Church of Divine Wisdom, Sultanahmet mosque and Topkapi Palace among its star attractions.
When you need to unwind and be pampered during your Turkey adventure tour, find a hamam and enjoy a massage, take a relaxing cruise on the Bosphorous or dip your toes in the Mediterranean Sea on the Turquoise Coast where you’ll also find some fantastic nightlife. For a genuine adventure, enjoy the tranquility at the top of Mt Nemrut as you watch the sun rise over mysterious statues at the top. Of course a Turkey adventure tour will also show you the country’s warm hospitality and one of the world’s most aromatic cuisines.
