Turkey Tours Explained - Are They For Me?

16th November 2015

Taking a trip to Turkey is something literally millions of people do every year but few people realise just how big Turkey actually is. While you may not plan to venture out very far on your holiday you'd be surprised how easy it can be to get lost even in resort towns and districts.

So what's the solution you ask? While maps and guidebooks will no doubt come in handy you really can't beat a good-guided tour.

Tours VS Exploring on Your Own

Exploring on your own might sound like an exciting prospect but unless you're really familiar with the area it isn't advisable. Plus guided tours are a great way of learning about the history of the area and tour guides will no doubt know some hidden shortcuts or places of interest that foreigners likely won't find on their own.

If you've visited Turkey before then you might think a guided tour is unnecessary but having a knowledgeable local guide take you around your favourite area is sure to be a fun learning experience and you'll likely learn things about the area you never knew before.

Tour Variety

When most people think of a guided tour we think it will be a couple of hours at most, but that's not always the case. There's a variety of guided tours on offer in Turkey and they can range from a couple of hours to tours that can last 20 days or more that take you all around the Country.

There's also a lot of tours that are designed around special interests for example you could go on a biking tour around Turkey, or go on a Turkish cuisine tour or even a bible or Jewish heritage tour. So with such a wide variety of tours available you'll be sure to find one that is perfect for you and your family or friends.

What's a tour like?

Let's take a look at one of the most popular tours ; Cappadocia Tours
A Cappadocia tour stars with the tour group exploring some of the famous Cappodocia valleys before visiting the caves and the Goreme Open-Air Museum. You'll visit many other sightseeing locations throughout the day like the local winery and the day will end as you watch the sunset over the Rose Valley Cave-town.

Lunches and breakfast will be included in the tour and along with accommodation (you'll have a choice of room for various prices) transfer fees from the bus station will also be provided and a English speaking professional guide will also be leading the tour.
