Turkey Tours & Package Trips

Turkey Group Tours

Our guided Turkey group tours range in length from one week to two and the majority of them start and finish in cosmopolitan Istanbul. Whichever of our fully escorted tours you pick, you'll take in the legendary Roman ruins of Ephesus, the battlefields of Gallipoli and the white cotton castles of Pamukkale. Our longer tours take in the fairy chimneys of Cappadocia, where you can soar above the landscape on a hot air balloon. And you can also join our combo cultural tours to see the highlights of Greece and Egypt!

Trip reviews from our ANZAC day travellers

Visit charming Constantinople on our Turkey trips

Istanbul has been called many names and served many kings and sultans. Like most Turkish cities, it is packed with incredible highlights. And we make sure you see everything there is to see on your Turkey tour.

From the Bosphorus, which divides Europe and Asia, to the incredible Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, and Topkapi Palace, plus shopping in the Grand Bazaar, you won't miss a thing on our Turkey tours.

Recommended tour: City of Sultans →

Frequently asked questions about our package trips in Turkey

Will I visit Istanbul on your Turkey tours?

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 Turkey tour, 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.

Do you offer any special Turkey package tours at Christmas?

Visiting Turkey over Christmas is a fabulous experience, and our 12-day Christmas Turkey tour departs once per year and features a special festive itinerary. Christmas Eve is spent visiting the tomb of St Nicholas and enjoying a group dinner at a hilltop restaurant in Antalya. And we spend Christmas Day exploring the Roman ruins of Perge and Aspendos. We take in all the main sights of the country on this trip too, head to the relevant webpage for more information!

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

On our Signature Turkey small group 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.

On our Handpicked Turkey group tours, the maximum group size is 40, but you will still be staying in excellent 4 - 5 star accommodation, and fully escorted by a tour guide.

What is the standard of accommodation on your Turkey trips?

On our Signature and Handpicked Turkey packages, 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. However, please note that we reserve the right to substitute the hotels listed for others of a similar standard.

What is Turkish food like and can I drink the tap water?

The short answer: Turkish food is AMAZING!

Turkish food is renowned around the world. You'll eat plenty of meze and hummus, and the kebabs are nothing like the ones you find in London at 3am! Other famous Turkish dishes include pide, a kind of Turkish pizza, and kofte (meatballs). There's more information about the food in Turkey on our top tips page.

The tap water in Turkey is generally considered safe to drink, so bring a reusable water bottle with you to save money and plastic waste!

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! However, the winter season tends to be cheaper and there are fewer tourists, so if you don't mind wrapping up warm then you could consider traveling at this time!

Check out our extensive guide on when to visit Turkey.

Is Turkey a safe destination for travellers from the LGBTQ+ community?

According to the 2022 LGBTQ+ Travel Safety Index, Turkey scores a D rating for LGBTQ+ traveller safety, ranking 103rd out of 203 countries.

Same sex marriage is not legal, and there are no constitutional or worker protections based on sexual orientation. 0 - 25% of consulted citizens consider Turkey a good place to live for gay and lesbian people. There are no legal punishments for same sex relations and most trips for LGBTQ+ travellers to Turkey are trouble-free.

The LGBTQ+ Travel Safety Index is designed to provide a good overall picture of attitudes towards the LGBTQ+ community in each country and may not reflect the experience of foreign travellers to the country.

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 Europe, Africa and the Middle East when travelling so far from home. 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.

Can I do a hot air balloon ride in Cappadocia?

Whilst we don't include hot air balloon rides on our tours in Turkey, it is an optional activity on all trips visiting Cappadocia. Your Turkey tour guide will be able to advise when this activity takes place, and you can book and pay for the hot air balloon ride locally. You'll get a unique perspective of the beautiful landscape of fairy chimneys and cave cities.


Walk the streets of the Ottoman Empire. Stand where the Romans once stood. Travel through time and a fascinating history with our passionate guides. Enjoy delicious street food and Turkish coffee. Relax on the Mediterranean coast. And discover the unique history of Turkey - making like-minded new friends as you explore.

And with our award-winning service, we put you first. From zero credit card fees to our 5% returning customer loyalty discount, you can book our Turkey trips with confidence. Our commitment to quality doesn't end there, though. From the moment you arrive, we'll deliver the outstanding value we pride ourselves on. So, why not make Turkey your next adventure?

The Best of our Turkey Trips

The kind-hearted hospitality of the locals is unlike anywhere else. Whether you're being offered a cup of traditional Turkish tea or chatting about local life and Turkish culture, you'll leave with the fondest memories. And that's not the only thing that stands out about our Turkey trips. From Istanbul's Blue Mosque to the underground cities of Cappadocia, here are some of the country's main highlights, and places you simply can't leave Turkey without visiting.

Hagia Sofia - Turkey Tours - On The Go Tours


Gateway to Asia and the starting point for all of our Turkey group tours, Istanbul is the place to be in Turkey. Take in the historical sites and other highlights, from Hagia Sofia to the Blue Mosque, barter at the Grand Bazaar, and don't forget to take to the Bosphorus on a cruise.



A magical land of fairy chimneys, subterranean churches and underground cities, Cappadocia is a place like no other. Head below ground to take it all in, then hop aboard a hot air balloon and sail serenely over the fairytale landscape for tremendous views.

Pamukkale thermal pools


Known locally as the Cotton Castles, these calcium formations are unlike anywhere else. Bask in the thermal pools that overlook the stunning cliffs of Pamukkale and walk along the beautiful terraces, then head to the nearby Roman spa town of Hierapolis.

Tour group in Ephesus - Turkey - On The Go Tours


For history buffs, it doesn't get better than Ephesus. These well-preserved Roman ruins are crowned by the extraordinary Library of Celsus, but you will also want to check out the amphitheatre. Imagine the city of old as you stroll amongst marble columns, taking it all in.

Fethiye - Turkey Tours - On The Go Tours


There's more to Turkey than cultural sights and history, especially on the Turquoise Coast. Fethiye is home to blissful beaches, gorgeous coastline, and crystal blue water. It's a great option for a beach break, or for taking a cruise on a traditional Turkish gulet.



Made famous by Greek mythology, the ancient ruins of Troy showcase centuries of history and are worth visiting in their own right. But the replica Trojan Horse towering over the site is another great highlight - especially when you can go inside!
