A land perched on the edges of Europe and Asia, Turkey is an exciting mix of European and Arabic influences. Here, travelers can explore fascinating archaeological sites, mighty Ottoman capitals and gorgeous Mediterranean landscapes. From incredible Istanbul to the ruins of Ephesus, and from the magnificent hand-painted tiles of the Blue Mosque to Homer’s immortalized land of Troy—Turkey’s treasures will leave you mesmerized. If you’ve ever dreamed of exploring this land of wonder, our collection of expertly planned journeys offers many opportunities for the perfect tour of Turkey.
The capital city, Ankara, offers interesting highlights such as the mausoleum of Ataturk, dedicated to the storied Turkish leader. Istanbul, historically known as Constantinople, is a modern day traveler favorite with must-see attractions including the world-famous Grand Bazaar, underground Cisterns, and Tokapi Palace, which housed Ottoman Sultans for over 400 years. You’ll experience all the highlights and more on your tour of Turkey. Go beyond the guidebook to experience Turkish culture through the eyes of a local—whether it’s taking in a performance by Istanbul’s Whirling Dervishes or enjoying an exclusive and intimate dinner at a centuries-old caravanserai.
When is the best time to visit Turkey? Spring, autumn, and summer are all good times to explore. The country’s diverse regions account for its varying year round temperatures. On the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts (in the east and southeast, respectively), travelers enjoy a temperate Mediterranean climate with hot and humid summers that are free from rain. In Istanbul and the rest of the region around the Sea of Marmara, expect hot summers and cold winters. In the north along the Black Sea, an oceanic climate takes over, bringing precipitation to the warm, humid summers and cool, damp winters.
Our collection of best-selling tours of Turkey offers something in every vacation style and for every interest. With every trip, you’ll enjoy expert guides, enriching experiences and special access to legendary sites. So what are you waiting for? The treasures of Turkey await you.
