The history of what is now known as Turkey is written in the remarkable ruins which are liberally scatted throughout the country.
One of the world's most exotic destinations, Turkey offers an extraordinary array of ancient ruins, including those of Troy (featured in Homer's Iliad) which date back more than 3,000 years; and the remarkable Roman ruins of Pergamon, Ephesus and Aphrodisias.
A journey around Turkey will introduce you to ancient caravanserai, magnificent Greek and Roman ruins, beautiful coastal scenery and the amazing underground city of Cappadoccia.
And, for those who can, a cruise on board a gulet (traditional sailing craft) will open your eyes to another side of Turkish life as you slip along its southern coast, visiting sheltered bays, villages and towns along the way.
Join us for the trip of a lifetime to modern-day Turkey.
