Starting in Istanbul and ending in Cappadocia, the Best Of Turkey trip is a guided adventure trip that takes 14 days. You will travel through Kekova, Selçuk, Antalya and 6 other destinations in Turkey. Best Of Turkey is a small group trip which includes accommodation in hotels, meals and others.

A journey capturing the cultural pulse of Turkey. We combine the classic highlights with forays into some of the country's more unusual places. In Istanbul we explore the Grand Bazaar, Topkapi Palace and Blue Mosque, before we journey to the historical cities of Gallipoli, Troy, Ephesus, Pamukkale and Hierapolis. Then we have the opportunity to swim in the clear Aegean waters while discovering the ancient towns of Fethiye, Antalya, Kas and Kekova that characterise this exquisite coastline. Konya, known for its Whirling Dervishes, is next on the itinerary before we head to Cappadocia, famous for the underground cities and extraordinary rock formations scattered throughout the Goreme Valley, where we conclude this fascinating trip.

“Alena our guide made this trip extra special. She shared her passion for Japan this included the history, food, countryside, people as well as the religions and the spiritual side. It was a wonderful trip covering walking in the mountains and the countryside as well as the busy hectic cities. With Alena’s guidance even mastering the subway in Osaka and Tokyo was easy.”

“We had the most amazing time whilst in Madagascar, everything was perfect. Our guide was excellent, as were all of the guides who we encountered at various places. The accommodation was great, whilst it was basic it was clean and tidy and the views we had at the National Park and in the Pangalanes was amazing. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.”
