Click for Dates and Prices Day 1 Istanbul
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.

Days 2-3 Gallipoli Peninsula
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.

Day 4 Selcuk
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.

Day 5 Fethiye
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.

Day 6 Faralya
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.

Days 7-9 Kas
Sunken cities, Mediterranean beaches, a whitewashed Old Town, spectacular cuisine and a relaxed atmosphere are all found in delightful Kas.

Days 10-11 Pamukkale
The arresting cascade of travertines and nearby hot springs have attracted visitors to Pamukkale since ancient times.

Day 12 Istanbul
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.

800-680-2858 800-680-2858 Notes
  • Ages: Min 15.
  • Group size: Min 1, Max 12.
  • This trip starts on Day 1 in Istanbul at 1pm.
  • Expect some culture shock. You'll be exposed to signs of poverty and access to services may be sporadic. The food will be quite different to home and English speakers harder to find. Respecting the local culture will make it easier to fit in and really experience the location. Turkey and its eastern neighbours are a fascinating mixture of East and West, as Europe and Asia come together. This can, and often does, mean that you will discover a region which is different to those you have experienced before. There are strong Islamic influences throughout the region, becoming more orthodox the further east you travel. There can be very different attitudes to time-keeping, public cleanliness and service, calls to prayer at 4.30am, lack of hot water and little English spoken. Naturally, this can all test the patience but if you can see this as an exciting new challenge rather than a setback, and if you are able to travel with a lot of patience and a sense of humour, then we know that you - like all of us - will be captivated by everything that Turkey and the Middle East has to offer.
  • This trip will raise your heartbeat. Moderate physical activities are included and a good level of fitness is required.
