  • Cut through the dizzying array of cuisine options in Istanbul with a guide who knows the best places to eat
  • Walk in the heated thermal waters of Pamukkale. These cotton-coloured calcium pools cascade down the cliffs overlooking the town of Pamukkale and are said to have remarkable healing powers
  • Step back in time at Ephesus, where the Greco-Roman world still feels very much alive. This is one of the best preserved classical cities in all of Europe and yet to be completely excavated
  • Spend some time reflecting on battles fought and lives lost in Gallipoli. This peaceful place has seen many atrocities due to its significant role in WW1
  • Glimpse Turkey from a different perspective as a local fisherman and his wife will guide you around the hidden coves around Kekova Island, away from the crowds. Take a dip in the crystal clear waters, visit the settlement of Ucagiz and return to Kas for the evening
  • Take a visit to a Turkish barber, an immersive local experience that isn't easily forgotten
  • Stay 2 nights in our Feature Stay Property in Selcuk / Ephesus a rustic boutique style property; a series of Konaks (Ottoman Residences) lovingly restored in an unique and authentic style
