Delve Deep: Turkey

Trip Overview

TRIP VIBE = iconic sights and in-depth adventures with a local Trip Leader. 

An intoxicating mix of continents, culture and cuisine, Turkey is everything you’ve heard... and then some. Go deeper than the balloon-filled skies of your Instagram account and uncover the real Turkey – from wandering the ancient Greek city of Ephesus or paying your respects at Lone Pine to cruising the aquamarine waters of Fethiye’s jagged coast. Oh, and there’s more to eat here than Turkish Delight and kebabs. 

Tales From Topdeckers

Trip itinerary

  1. Istanbul (Turkey)


    Ancient ruins. Colourful bazaars. Intoxicating flavours. And a unique culture waiting to be discovered. Welcome to Turkey! Check into the hotel and meet the gang – we’re a mixed bunch but are all in it together, just like it should be. Tonight, start your Turkish love affair with an included dinner at a local restaurant – then watch Hagia Sofia turn a million shades of orange as the sun sets on your first day. Sh*t, this is gonna be good.

    Baha was a fantastic tour guide, he went over and above at every opportunity and made the trip as incredible as it was for us by himself.

  • Timmy D August 2023

    A great introduction to Turkey! For the time we had, we couldn't have covered more ground, or seen more sights. The guide and the rest of the crew really helped to make it!
