From sampling regional specialties like saffron-flavoured Turkish delight to relaxing on the Black Sea’s coast, history buffs, food lovers and sun seekers will all enjoy this Turkish trip. Highlights/r/n
  • Kars, a transit point between Anatolia and the Caucasus, a city and a region still undiscovered by main stream tourism with quirky little villages and unique architecture coupled with stunning scenery
  • Ani, recognised at a UNESCO site in 2016  and once the stately Armenian Capital, an abandoned city on a wind swept plateau,  the eerie silence, the crumbling proud buildings - unforgettable  
  • Cag Kebab originating in the eastern Anatolian province of Erzurum, the kebab looks like a horizontal döner, but tastes otherworldly.
  • The Dogu Express, sit back and watch the magnificent geography of North Eastern Turkey glide effortlessly past
  • Amasya one of Turkey's most beautiful small cities that sits in the mountains over the Black Sea region, stroll river side in the evening feasting your eyes on the beautifully preserved Ottoman houses - they sure knew how to build a home.
  • Taste the unique flavor of Safron Turkish delight and enjoy a feature stay in a Konak in  the Heritage listed Safranbolu the entire village is a museum.
