Where do you go for the awesomest Greco-Roman sites, the best kebabs known to man and the most moonlike city? No, not Italy, Lebanon, or the earth’s natural satellite – go on a Turkey tour.
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.
What people say
Turkey was amazing - the food, the history, the people, everything. This tour was the best way to see the country in 11 days. Hot air ballooning in Cappadocia has to be one of the best experiences ever!
What people say
Having a local guide was great, knowing all the inside tips meant for an amazing and unique time in Turkey. It was just all beyond my expectations! The two night sail down south was definitely my highlight. Unforgettable and totally hooked on Geckos
Turkey travel highlights
Chow down on baklava in Istanbul’s Spice Bazaar
Or dried fruit and nuts. Or tea and coffee. Or Turkish delight. The choice is overwhelming
Visit the Greco-Roman city of Ephasus
There’s old, and then there’s Ephasus-old. Take a wander along streets where Antony and Cleopatra used to hang out
Blush at the rocky sculptures of Love Valley in Goreme
They’re often called ‘fairy chimneys’, but we all know what they really look like. Seriously though, Cappadocia’s scenery is one of a kind
