Start in Istanbul and end in Cappadocia, the Best Of Turkey trip is a guided adventure trip that takes 14 days. You will travel through Fethiye, Antalya, Gallipoli Peninsula 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.

“I thoroughly enjoyed this trip, having previously climbed Kilimanjaro, I had an idea of the conditions I could expect as I gained altitude. I did train harder than for previous treks. I was the only Brit with 12 Australians and thoroughly enjoyed their company, a good mixed group that all got on well together. I chose World Ex. as all meals were provided on the trek, a good decision for me. The kit supplied, and tents with camp beds was a bonus, better than previous organised treks with different operators. Unfortunately due to cloud at Kathmandu airport we all had to fly to Lukla by helicopter to start the trek. An extra payment in US dollars had to be paid at this point, my travel insurance company is saying I am not covered, a covering letter from WE was provided to all on the trek. I can only suggest reading the small print to ensure any additional transport cost DURING THE TREK is covered. Our trek leader Subal was brilliant, as were his assistants and all the team. Subal helped us complete this trek by monitoring everyone, with his comprehensive experience and medical kit we all completed the trek, no one helicoptered out, unlike other groups we chatted to. The trek length helped us to get used to the altitude, but lack of oxygen as we got higher affected us all, again, monitored by Subal and the guides, the pace was adjusted to suit our group. My tips, train before going, very cold when sun was not shining and at night, make sure your water bottles can be filled with boiling water and use as hot water bottles, changing currency in Kathmandu, and Namche Bazaar is easy, Aus and US dollars, Euro and UK pound. Tips for the team was sorted before the end of trek, have cash available. A thoroughly enjoyable trip, I am still processing my achievement as I sort my photo's.”
