Explore Turkey with our tours
The bridge between the East and the West, Turkey is a heady blend of exotic orientalism and occidental influences, creating an experience unlike any other country in the world.
The city of Istanbul is legendary for its rich history and the Hagia Sophia perfectly reflects this history, being built as a church during the Constantine reign and later converted into a mosque in the 1400s. Istanbul has evolved into a modern, vibrant city with an active arts scene and stylish restaurants nestling alongside historic monuments and ancient bazaars. Take a cruise along the Bosphorus, the thin strip of water separating Asia from Europe, and enjoy the beauty of Istanbul from the waters.
Venture outside of Istanbul and you will be thankful you did so, with the magical Cappadocia rising out of the morning mists. This lunar landscape with its fairy chimneys is captivating and, to really appreciate it, take a hot air balloon far above the limestone structures. The ancient Roman city of Ephesus is also well worth a trip, with its breathtakingly well preserved ruins.
Turkish food combines the best of Central Asian, Mediterranean, Arabic and Caucasian cuisines, with delicious meat kebabs, meze and honeyed, nutty baklava pastries for those with a sweet tooth.
