With its pristine coastline and fascinating ancient cities, Turkey regularly features on travellers' bucket lists. Istanbul is a treasure trove of architectural wonders from the Blue Mosque to Topkapi Palace. For many travellers, Turkey is a place for quiet reflection with the war memorials of Gallipoli and echoes of recent history. For others, Turkey is a place of awe and wonder with its incredible natural landscapes. From the calcium terraces of Pamukkale to the underground villages of Cappadocia, there's also plenty of coastline to soak up the sun.

We know planning the perfect trip can take time, especially when there's so much to explore. That's where we come in. From start to finish, we'll arrange the logistics - so you can make every second of your Turkey group tour count.

Frequently asked questions about our Turkey group tours

Will I visit Istanbul?

Istanbul is probably Turkey's most popular destination, and you'll be glad to know that all of our Turkey tours (with the exception of our sailing holidays) start in the city formerly known as Constantinople. There's included sightseeing in the city on all Signature group tours, so you won't miss a thing.

You could also add on our 4-day City of Sultans short stay at the beginning or end of your trip, for even more time to explore Istanbul!

Can I visit Turkey to commemorate ANZAC Day?

The Gallipoli campaign during WWI tragically claimed the lives of many Australians and New Zealanders. We run annual tours to Gallipoli to coincide with the Dawn Service at ANZAC Cove on 25 April.

Our range of tours varies from a 4-day express visit to longer tours including sightseeing in Turkey and nearby Egypt. Browse our ANZAC Day page for more information about these trips.

How big are your tour groups and what is the age of your travellers?

On our Signature Turkey tours, the maximum group size is 24 but the average is more like 14. You'll travel with like-minded people from a variety of English-speaking countries and ages range from those in their 20s all the way up to people in their 60s and beyond - all with a shared passion for travel! The average age on our tours is around 45.

What is the standard of accommodation on your Turkey trips?

On our Signature Turkey holidays, you'll be staying in good quality accommodation - a mix of 4 and 5-star hotels. We select our hotels based on a wide array of criteria including great location, facilities, and comfort. You can see an example of the hotels we use on the tour pages for many of our trips.

When is the best time to visit Turkey?

While Turkey is a year-round destination, the summers can be very hot and the winters very cold, especially in central areas such as Cappadocia.

For this reason, we recommend travelling during spring from March to May and autumn from September to November. If joining one of our sailing holidays, then the warm summer months from June to August are best for topping up that tan!

Check out our extensive guide on when to visit Turkey.

Can I visit Egypt at the same time as Turkey?

Yes! We know lots of travellers from North America and Oceania love to explore more of the region when travelling so far. Our 16-day Turkey & Tutankhamun tour includes guided sightseeing in Turkey, before travelling to Cairo in Egypt for touring of the Pyramids of Giza, Aswan and Luxor!

You can also explore some of the Greek islands and ancient Athens with our 14-day Istanbul to Athens group tour.
