Turkey 2021/22: 12-Day Luxury Small-Group Tour with Cappadocia Hot Air Balloon Flight & Gallipoli Extension Available

Travel until 05 Oct 2022

Succumb to Turkey’s otherworldly beauty, culinary prowess and UNESCO World Heritage-listed sites on this luxury small-group tour (max. 16 travellers), where you’ll ascend above Cappadocia’s ethereal ‘fairy chimneys’ on a hot air balloon flight, descend into Özkonak Underground City and glimpse a side of Turkey that not all tourists see — magical and filled with intrigue.

Staying in world-class accommodation, including Istanbul’s iconic Pera Palace Hotel – a 19th-century hotel that’s welcomed Agatha Christie and Ernest Hemingway – you'll visit ancient sites with your expert guide while enjoying time to wander and get lost on your own as well. Marvel at the lofty dome of Hagia Sophia, bargain at the Grand Bazaar, sail across the glistening Aegean Sea in a traditional gulet (wooden yacht), discover Ephesus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and sink into the mineral-rich thermal waters of Pammukale.

Journey beyond Turkey’s tiled buildings and narrow streets to discover its long legacy of culinary cuisine. Embark on a guided Istanbul tasting tour, indulge with a Cappadocia wine tasting, savour authentic food with a local family and get hands-on with a traditional cooking class.

  • 11 nights of luxury accommodation including four nights at the 19th-century Pera Palace Hotel, two nights at The Marmara Bodrum Hotel, two nights at Celsus Boutique Hotel, two nights at Exedra Hotel and one night at the five-star Doga Thermal Spa & Hotel
