Is this trip right for you:
  • Don’t let the heat keep you from exploring the world! Summer temperatures can be very high in this region, which can make things uncomfortable. It’s important to use sun protection, wear layers to combat the heat, and drink plenty of water. Turkey and Greece can reach up to 40°C so you will need to be able to cope with the heat if you're visiting at this time. Activities are planned for early morning and later afternoon but please consider the time of year and your suitability to visiting during that season.
  • This trip involves a lot of walking, sometimes on rocky or slippery terrain such as the sites in Goreme. Please bring sturdy walking shoes, but also note that you can sit out the walks if you do not feel up to them.
  • There are some long travel days in Turkey, but lots of stops and plenty to see. Please check our daily itinerary for travel times.
  • Pickpocketing can be an issue in Athens, especially on public transport. But if you keep your valuables concealed and secure while travelling on the metro or bus, you should have no problems.
