LATEST TRAVEL UPDATES AND ADVICE FOR Turkey

Updated: 28th January 2020

Travel Advice for Turkey

As a tour operator registered in the United Kingdom we follow the travel advice of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). Due to ongoing conflict in the Middle East region, travel advice to Turkey does change from time to time. The FCO has recently placed travel restrictions to Eastern Turkey, specifically the region bordering Syria, and due to this travel advice we are no longer offering touring arrangements to this area of Turkey. Our standard tours to Turkey remain unaffected and the main tourist sites of Istanbul, Cappadocia, Pamukkale and the Aegean coastline are considered safe to visit.

For more detailed information please visit the FCO website.

You may also wish to consult the U.S. Bureau of Consular Affairs for further information from your local advisory body and for purposes of insurance cover.

Travelling to Cappadocia

At present Cappadocia is as far east in Turkey that our group tours visit. It's a perfectly safe region over 450km from the Syrian border and remains unaffected by recent troubles. Our tours that include Cappadocia have been operating as normal with passengers safely visiting the wonderful underground villages and churches, and more often than not enjoying a scenic hot air balloon ride over the area.
