From manoeuvring the streets of bustling Istanbul and sampling traditional Turkish food to visiting ancient cities, this tour of Turkey has treasures for everyone to discover.

Visit the city of Troy – an ancient city founded in 3000 BC and made famous by Homer’s poem, Iliad, that depicted the ten-year siege of the city during the Trojan War – with your English-speaking tour guide. For the movie buffs out there, this city is more famously recognised in the 2004 film, Troy – based on Homer’s poem and featuring Brad Pitt, Diane Kruger and Orlando Bloom.
