Experiencing Turkey is like stepping onto a movie set of whirling dervishes, shimmering mosques, sultans' treasures, and ancient Roman cities like Ephesus. Long a historical link between Europe and Asia, Turkey embodies the modernity and traditions of both: bazaars, lush gardens of the Bosphorus Strait, and the cafe culture of Istanbul.

Tours & Packages to Turkey
My husband and I went on the Greek Isles and Turkey cruise in October. We had a wonderful time! We had plenty of time to tour the islands, come back to the ship, relax and then set out again for dinner and nightlife ashore. The hotel in Athens had a rooftop restaurant with a beautiful view of the Parthenon. Many of the travelers on the boat had already done several trips with Friendly Planet and spoke highly of them. We can't wait until our next Friendly Planet trip. The only hard part was deciding which one to do next!

The flight and land transportation, hotels, food, guide, driver, and sites were all excellent! Our guide, Mr. Gokhan Baydur, was very knowledgeable and friendly. We really appreciated his etymology of words and relation to history of modern Turkey, etc. He was also very capable at keeping us all together, which is no easy task. The driver was phenomenal; I don't know how he managed to drive the bus through the Istanbul traffic and somehow make U-turns: amazing!
