Fantastic tour. Accomdation standards were better than expected and transport was easy and clean.

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.

If the world was a stage then Europe would make sure she was front and centre. As the backdrop to some of the world's most dramatic and spectacular sights, it is always at the top of any traveller's wishlist.
In spite of all the people who flock here each year, Turkey still has a wonderful sense of being undiscovered. It boasts a raw and magnetic beauty that will leave you breathless at every turn. Where else but Hierapolis can you bathe among Roman remains in thermal waters?
And where other than at Kekova could you swim around the ruins of an ancient sunken city? Greece has a way of getting under your skin and seducing you with its charm. A rich historical background has left its mark on the landscape, with ruins that span six thousand years.
At every turn there is something different, from the incredible scenery of Santorini and Crete to the iconic and unforgettable Acropolis.
There's something for everyone, you just have to let yourself be open to Greece and it will soon show you the way.View all Europe trips
