QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How many days are enough for Europe?

    You can spend a couple of months exploring Europe and still feel like you have not seen everything. Generally speaking, a two-week Europe trip should be just enough if you are looking to cover its major highlights. However, if you want a comprehensive travel experience within this duration, it is better that you focus on a region or a few countries rather than traveling all over the continent. 

    Choose a single country or schedule your trip around a handful of cities in different countries. While larger European cities may require three to four days to explore, you can get around smaller destinations in a day or two. Planning your trip around a particular region will cut down your travel time and save your time in transit.

  • How much does a tour to Turkey cost?

    Turkey remains one of the most affordable destinations of its kind. A quick five-day tour will cost around USD 800, while a more comprehensive two-week tour will cost around USD 2,000.

  • What is the best time to visit Turkey?

    The peak tourist season is from June to August but the best time to visit Turkey is the shoulder seasons between April and May and September and October. These months have the best weather and fewer crowds.

  • How many days should I spend on a visit to Turkey?

    There is enough to do in Turkey for weeks on end, but a visit between a week and 10-days is the perfect amount of time. For more information, check out our article on how many days to spend in Turkey.
