Book a Tour to Turkey

Turkey tours

Turkey is one of the top tourist destinations during summer and there are endless excursions and places of historic and cultural interest to visit, as well as water sports, hiking and more. 

You can find tours in Turkey and explore this diverse and spectacular country. We list international and local tour operators in Turkey who offer tailor made trips, small group tours, city sightseeing, overland adventures, Anzac excursions and sailing adventures. There are options for all budgets and most trips can be joined all year round. You will get a really authentic experience and get to travel like a local and learn more about the history and culture of Turkey with an experienced guide. 

On small group tours you will travel with a guide and group exploring the highlights of the country. If you’d rather stick close to the sensible path there are plenty of activities to do during trips including exploring hills covered in pine forests, finding amazing routes to hike or even exploring on horseback. And for those who are after a more adrenaline fuelled rush then there are plenty of off road quad safaris and white water rafting excursions. 


Turkey Backpacker Tours

Although spending all of your time sunbathing interpsersed with the odd dip in the pool can be tempting, if you’re going away for a decent amount of time you’ll want to join an overland adventure where you will visit new places and try new experiences. Most trips start in Istanbul which is a vibrant city, but there is a lot more to this country too.

If you’re after a bit of culture and want to soak up some ancient history, you can go and visit the impressive and awe inspiring ruined city of Ephesus and Pamaukkale. If you’re after something that still has some Turkish hospitality and culture of today, then you could join a tour which visits Akyaka to have a look at some real village life amid stunningly beautiful scenery.


Turkey Sailing Tours 

Sailing tours along the gorgeous coastline is a really good way to explore and there are lots of boat trips and cruises available, including various options with food onboard. You can have a tasty Turkish barbecue while you take in the sun and sea and stop for swimming along the shoreline.

You will get to see the very special Aegean Coast villages. You can even go much further afield by booking onto a hydrofoil to another country - the Greek island of Rhodes is just an hour away from Marmaris by sea (view our selection of tours in Greece).

We highly recommend booking a relaxing sailing holiday in the Aegean Sea in South-West Turkey. These are usually small group trips with a maximum number of 8 people per departure so booking in advance is essential to secure your spot.

On this trip you will get to have regular stops to go swimming in pristine waters, visit deserted beaches, explore small fishing villages, sample the local food, take in beautiful coastlines and enjoy the adventure of a lifetime. Places you will usually visit include Bodrum,Ova Bükü, Bozukkale, Dirsek/Kocabahce, Datça and Knidos.


Cappadocia Tours

Visit the spectacular Cappadocia region of Turkey and eat tasty local food, learn more about the area and explore and go sightseeing with a local guide. Visit the Derinkuyu underground city which is where early Christians settlers escaped persecution from the Roman empire by hiding in an underground cave network.

This area is very unique in terms of landscapes and scenery and there will be lots of entertainment in the evenings, you will also get to enjoy a meal with a local family. Cappadocia is also famous for balloon rides and you will get amazing pictures and views if you choose to take to the sky for one of the most famous views in the world.

You will also get to visit vineyards and local sights on bike and foot whilst also going hiking in the Cappadocia valley. Tour durations are usually around 4 days with start dates all year round.


Save the Turtles Campaign

Some travel companies will donate money from your booking to the Ulupinar Conservation Coop who protect and monitor the activities of sea turtles. Several beaches in Turkey are popular nesting sites for the species known as Caretta Caretta. Protecting them may also save these beaches from irresponsible development.
