Join us on this small-group, guided tour of Turkey and discover the ancient treasures and turbulent history of this country. Starting from Istanbul, the capital city, this tour takes you through Gallipoli, Canakkale, Troy, Ephesus, Kusadasi, Cappadocia, Urfa and Gaziantep, among other destinations.

Discover the major monuments and landmarks throughout the country that date from medieval and ancient ages to the Neolithic period. Visit the grand Topkapi Palace, first built by Mehmet the Conqueror in 1453 AD, in Istanbul and see First World War memorials in Gallipoli.

See a replica of the Trojan Horse in Troy and examine the cities that came into existence in this area, each one on top of the other. Come across a colossal Greek theatre in Ephesus and explore the unique volcanic rock formations of Cappadocia. Climb Mount Nemrut and visit Gobekli Tepe, a recently discovered site that is home to monumental stone structures that are said to have been erected by hunter-gatherers in the Neolithic period.

Fly back to Istanbul from Gaziantep on the second last day of the tour. We will drive you to the airport on the last day of the tour for your flight home.
