Is this trip right for you:
  • This trip covers a lot in two weeks, so there are some long travel days, however all travel is in comfortable air-conditioned private buses, stops are frequent, and the scenery is superb. We believe this is the best way to really see a country like Turkey and experience the diverse landscapes.
  • You will need sturdy walking shoes, a hat, some sunscreen and a day pack to explore some of the historical sites. All site tours are guided but you can wander at your own pace if you prefer.
  • Anzac Cove can get quite cool in the months of April and October. We recommend bringing a wind-proof jacket.
  • The weather can be warmer in July and August, but this is the best time to enjoy the clear waters of the Mediterranean, and our activities will be timed to miss the heat of the day.
