Turkey Active SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Adorned with treasure from all periods of human history, Istanbul is not only one of the world's most fascinating places, it's also one of its most mesmerising.
The Gallipoli Peninsula, a place of devastation and tragedy during World War I, is a place of great beauty and a memorial to all soldiers that fell there.
Selcuk's claim to fame is its proximity to the amazing ruins of Ephesus, although it has its own charm with its orchards, forests and strong cultural roots.
With Lycian rock tombs carved into cliffs, a beautiful coastline and a renowned market, Fethiye is a laidback, friendly town full of wonderful Turkish cuisine and culture.
Located along the Lycian Way, Faralya is a small, unspoiled village looking out over turquoise waters and the perfect place to get away from it all.
Sunken cities, Mediterranean beaches, a whitewashed Old Town, spectacular cuisine and a relaxed atmosphere are all found in delightful Kas.
The arresting cascade of travertines and nearby hot springs have attracted visitors to Pamukkale since ancient times.
The wonderful city of Istanbul has an incredibly rich history, amazing array of architectural styles, a delectable cuisine, vibrant nightlife, fascinating culture and oodles of style.

Turkey Active, June 2014
In the initial part of tour several days of long bus travel which I dont think anyone likes but probably not a lot that can be done to avoid Fatih was a very pleasant, friendly, informative guide. I certainly asked many questions and always got comprehensive answers. He interacted very well with the varied age groups/personalities on the tour. Sometimes hard to pin down on plans/times but I do like to have everything locked away in my mind and I think that might be a difference between my Aussie mind set and his (it is also the first time Ive traveled in group/tour I'm used to having all the details all the time). I always felt safe and completely in his care, he made group travel very personal, I would certainly hope to do another Intrepid tour if he is the standard of guide employed by the company

The tour was great - Canero was an excellent guide, very helpful, friendly and lots of fun while still being professional and organised. He consistently went that extra mile throughout the trip, whether it was to arrange an activity or to keep an eye on everyone, no matter what time of day or night, to ensure we were all ok. He connected well with all group members, whatever age and background.
