Description of Turkey small group holiday

This Turkey small group holiday invites every opportunity to experience all aspects of the country as you travel on a clockwise round-trip from Istanbul via the inevitable highlights of Goreme, Konya and a cruise around the islands close to the seaside village of Kas.

From haggling and sightseeing in Istanbul to exploring the landscapes of Cappadocia and sailing off the coast of Kekova, this Turkey small group holiday leaves no wave-washed pebble unturned as you experience the country, and its people, way beyond the typical tourist resorts.

Turkey tantalises all the senses at every step with the archaeological ruins at Ephesus and the naturally hot springs at Pamukkale providing just a couple of memorable moments on a Turkey small group holiday alongside opportunities to pay your respects to those who fought in Gallipoli.

Packed full of cultural enlightenment, historic monuments and an array of natural splendour this Turkey small group holiday will leave you in no uncertain terms as to the enduring allure of the land where east meets west.

Small group adventure - Comfort trips

What is a small group adventure?
It's a great way to travel! Whether you are travelling on your own, with a partner or with friends, a small group trip is a fantastic way to see the world. You'll travel on a fixed itinerary that has been designed to help you discover the best of region. From the known highlights, the hidden gems that you won't find in the guidebooks.

Itineraries run on set departure dates, accompanied every step of the way by an English speaking local group leader. You chose the itinerary and the date that suits you best and you book on.

Why travel on a small group adventure?
Small groups allow us to explore where larger tour groups can't. Our maximum group size of 16 travellers allows us to use local transport to get from A to B, to visit rural villages, spend time with the locals and even stay at a local home overnight, and it allows us to give our travellers genuine, real life experiences of the countries we are visiting; what you'll be doing and how you'll travel depends entirely on your chosen itinerary.

Is an adventure right for me?
The word adventure means something different to everyone, and our range of trips reflects that. Whether you want to explore local markets, visit out of the way temples and meet local people or go on an early morning safari drive searching for the 'big five', we'll have a trip for you. If you are looking for a physical challenge such trekking the Kokoda Track or summiting Kilimanjaro, we can help with that too.

So what can I expect on this trip?
This is one of our Comfort trips, designed for travellers looking for more inclusions in their itinerary, a higher standard of accommodation and more focus on private vehicles over public transport.

Comfort trips are aimed at the adventure traveller who wants to discover the world up close, but with some creature comforts along the way. Dependent on the itinerary, there may still be a night multi-share accommodation (at a homestay for example), but this will be to ensure you don't miss out on a fantastic experience. Camping trips will usually stay in permanent, tented camps or some of the safari options may be lodge based.

You'll stay in predominantly 3 ½ star and above tourist class hotels with private, en suite facilities, although some itineraries will still include the opportunity to stay with a local family, spend a night on an overnight train or camp out somewhere amazing (without the hassle of putting up your own tent!).

You'll find a number of the meals are included (as per your itinerary) and when eating together we'll focus on smaller, often family run restaurants, often eating where the locals eat and ensuring that you are still getting an authentic travel experience.

Can I book my flights with you?
Yes! We are a fully ATOL bonded tour operator meaning that we can book flights from the UK as part of your holiday package. Just ask us for a quote including flights when you make your enquiry.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
The very ethos of our style of travel is responsible; small groups on fully escorted tours, experiencing the very best of a region, a culture and a landscape, with a friendly local hand guiding the way. Our itineraries are designed to give our travellers real life experiences without compromising the part of the world we are exploring; to travel responsibly is at the heart of our commitment as a global tour operator.

This trip takes in a number of major archaeological sites from Goreme, to Ephesus, to Troy, where you may have a local site guide with your group as well as your group leader. The entrance fee to all sites goes towards the continued upkeep of these very special slices of history, but the part we play in bigger than that. We ask all our travellers to respect the sites we are visiting. At many of these locations the group will enjoy a picnic lunch, made up of locally sourced, fresh produce. We do however want these beautiful locations maintained for future visitors, so your group leader will always be on hand to assist in the responsible disposal of rubbish. We aim to recycle wherever possible, and the group leader will encourage the group to take rubbish with us until it can be discarded appropriately.

We know that small steps can make a big difference to the overall picture and you will hopefully notice other little actions taken as we go, such as the fact that we encourage travellers to use refillable water bottles and purification tablets rather than purchasing water in plastic bottles on tour, thus helping to minimise waste.

The Impacts of this Trip

Travel with us on this wonderful journey encompassing both modern and ancient Turkey and you can be sure that as well as a fascinating trip staying in comfortable hotels, you will be on a tour that will tread lightly, support local industry and initiative and help provide regional employment opportunities en route. Through our policy on employing professional, local leaders to guide our groups, you will also benefit from a greater personal understanding of the ancient and sometimes turbulent history, culture and traditions of this unique country which sits astride two confinements.

We ask all our travellers to be aware of cultural sensitivities when they travel with us and your group leader will also be able to encourage and advise your group with this. Actions in tune with the area being visited are often a key indicator marking out responsible travellers from many of the ‘tourist herd’. Some areas visited in this trip are very conservative in their attitudes, particularly outside of the Cappadocia region, where we stop for the night in Konya. Attitudes here are very religious and conservative so we ask that modest clothing that covers shoulders and longer trousers as an alternative to shorts are worn.

The comfortable accommodations that we use throughout this trip are all private, locally owned properties reflective of the region we are through which we are travelling. All are fantastically placed to give you a range of dining options at a variety of traditional (often family run) establishments, further supporting local businesses and allowing you to discover the region through some great food! Make use of your guides’ local knowledge to dine where the locals do, or feel free to explore and discover independently, it’s entirely up to you. Either way, you’ll be benefiting the local economy.

You have some free time, so research what you might want to do with this time to explore.

I loved it. It was excellent!! It was the right amount of city, countryside, coast, and history.
