What's included in this trip
Turkey Express 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.
With a picturesque harbour facing the Aegean Sea, relaxed waterside cafes, hills of olive groves and nearby idyllic islands, Ayvalik exudes Turkish charm.
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.
The arresting cascade of travertines and nearby hot springs have attracted visitors to Pamukkale since ancient times.
With cobblestone streets and beautifully preserved Ottoman-style buildings, Antalya's Old Town lies along Turkey's Mediterranean coast and looks on to picturesque mountains.

Turkey Express, May 2014
I have never travelled on a tour before and had my 85 yo mother as a travelling companion. Suleyman Erkose was a delightful tour guide. He was incredibly knowledgable, was responsive to concerns I discussed about my mother's needs and was at all time a wonderful mix of professional and relaxed. In many ays his qualities were what made this tour so enjoyable.
