  • Why we love Turkey

    Any country that straddles two continents has to be diverse, right? Right. You could say that Turkey has so many things to see and do it needed an extra continent to share the load. But do you know who totally ruined it? The Greeks, the Romans and the Ottomans.

    Their ruins are everywhere (lololol). There’s Ephesus’ ancient amphitheater, Pammukale where Cleopatra used to take a dip, Cappadoccia’s cave houses and an entire city near Kekova Island that’s under the water.

    Goggles might be required for that one. What else? The food! Kebabs, fish sandwiches, pistachio ice cream and lots and lots of tea. And then, if all that eating and sightseeing makes you tired you could just sit on a boat and sail through turquoise waters. 

    Safety information

    Everyone has the right to feel safe and secure on their trip. We don’t tolerate any form of sexual harassment at Peregrine and Geckos, either between passengers or involving our leaders or local operators.

    What's it like to be at the Gallipoli ANZAC Day Ceremony?

    By Sarah Yates

    I wandered off in the darkness to find a quiet spot from which I could warm myself and watch the service. The track was rough, bumpy and crumbling. There were Turkish soldiers everywhere; with guns so big they looked pretend. Even though the guns on these shores were long silent...

    Impressions of Istanbul

    By Oliver Pelling

    Before visiting Turkey, I had few preconceptions of the place. I had fewer still of Istanbul. This likely isn’t a good thing for someone who writes about travel for a living to admit, but there we go.

    All I had rattling around my mind were a few stock travel...
