Style Style Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.
Retreats Similar to a self guided tour but staying in one location only with activities and day outings included as a part of the stay.

Top Turkey Attractions & Experiences

Top Turkey Experiences

    Gazing awed at the massive treasures of the Ottoman Empire in Istanbul’s Topkapi Museum.

    Marveling over the Byzantine architecture of Hagia Sophia.

    Dining at a rooftop restaurant situated between Istanbul’s Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia, as the sun sets and the iconic, exotic structures are illuminated.

    Kayak above the underwater, ancient ruins of Kekova, off Turkey’s south coast along the Lycian Trail.

    Riding the ferries across the Bosphorus while crossing from Europe to Asia or vice versa.

    Wandering through the seemingly endless market stalls in Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar as persistent salesman hawk rugs, jewelry and souvenirs.

    Watching a whirling dervish twirl and sway for hours on an outdoor stage, seemingly mesmerized by the entrancing rhythms of the sufi music played in the background.

    Making a quick but tasty lunch of a fresh grilled fish sandwich sold at a sidewalk stand near the Bosphorus.

    Attending a Sufi dance performance.

Furkan did a wonderful job organizing our 10 days long trip to Istanbul, Cappadocia, Ephesus, Pamukkale, and Bodrum he provided plenty of guidance in every part of the planning process. It was clear that he had extensive experience traveling through the country. Furkan was extremely friendly, very accommodating to our personal needs, and gave us great recommendations for our free time. He arranged everything so we didn't have to worry about the details. We have never experienced such wonderful service and support. It all begins with understanding the customer and Furkan really understood what we were looking for. As a foodie and having a genuine passion for Turkish cuisine, he tailored a trip, to ensure that we had the best food experiences in Turkey, and the amenities on tours were fantastic. The sweets in Turkey are unbelievable when compared to United States desserts. The whole experience was really mind-blowing. Turkey is an amazing country filled with amazing people. We would love to return to Turkey and visit other cities. We are so pleased that we did this trip.

Treasures of Turkey was a wonderful mixture of interesting cities, historic sites, seaside settings on the Mediterranean and the Aegean Sea. Our guide, Oguz Atici, was knowledgeable and clearly loved this history and culture of his country. We covered nearly 2000 miles in a comfortable bus with an unbeatable driver. This is a tough time for Turkey but I wish the best for this beautiful and welcoming country.
