Journey to where East meets West with our range of tours to Turkey or opt for an exclusive tailor-made holiday with handy travel guides to help you prepare for your trip.

With its pristine coastline and fascinating ancient cities, Turkey regularly features on the UK's most popular tourist destination list and it's not hard to see why when you consider that Istanbul, a treasure trove of architectural wonders from the Blue Mosque to Topkapi Palace, is less than five hours away. For a number of UK 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 with plenty of coastline to soak up the sun.

Turkey Discovery was a superb tour. Fabulous destinations, well thought out and well organised, Recep was the best guide we have ever had, He has so much knowledge to share. If you want to see Turkey then I would thoroughly recommend this tour. ”  

Joss Noble • Submitted 3 Jun 2018

This tour exceeded all expectations. A lovely group of 10 and an outstanding guide. Reggie was enormously knowledgible, funny and kind. His many contacts enabled us to enjoy an unscheduled evening cruise and dinner including swimming from the boat.

It is deeply impressive that Reggie has been touring for many years but greets each group with delight as he introduces us to his country. The tour, itself glorious and satisfying, is so much more under his guidance. It was a privilege to be guided by him. On the Go has a star, cherish him. ”  

Janet Freeman • Submitted 3 Jun 2018
