Delve Deep: Turkey

Up to off this trip

Trip Overview

(Previously called: Turkey Explored) 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 tucking into dinner with a local Cappadocian family to wandering the ancient Greek city of Ephesus, paying your respects at Lone Pine or cruising the aquamarine waters of Fethiye’s jagged coast. Oh, and there’s more to eat here than Turkish Delight and kebabs.

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.
