If you are planning a trip to Turkey, then you may want to know what tours you can choose from. A tour would be a great and safe way to see the cities and countryside of Turkey. Turkey is rich in history and has amazing buildings and structures that are worth a visit. A guided tour would be a safe and easy way to visit and a good way to learn about the various features and structures.
You can purchase a tour package that can vary from 4 days all the way up to 15 days. These tours involve visiting a couple of cities. An example of one of the more affordable tours is a 4-day tour that includes the cities of Cappadocia, Pamakkule, and Ephesus. You can take a 6-day tour if you want, during which you can visit these cities as well as Pergamum, and Troy. At Pamakkule you can visit Hierapolis, which is an ancient city, and the beautiful Travertines, which are cliffs and pools formed out of calcite. The cliffs are truly amazing and are made of white calcium. At Permagon you can visit the altar of Zeus and Hellenistic Theater. Troy shows the remnants of several ancient cities, hence there is much to see and learn in a trip to Troy. The longer 14 to 15-day tours include visits to as many as 10 cities.
There are also tours that you can take within a city, for instance, there are several different tours within Istanbul. You can embark on a full day guided tour of the city or if you would prefer, simply go on an afternoon guided tour. There is so much to see and do in Istanbul which has resplendent mosques, the grand bazaar, and Topkapi Palace Museum. If an afternoon tour still seems too much, you can always opt for a half-day tour of Istanbul. During this, you can see the Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque, and Hippodrome among other sites. Istanbul even has boat tours which will take you through the golden horn. The golden horn, also known as the Haliç, is a horn-shaped estuary and major waterway.
Tours from Istanbul
You can also take tours starting out from Istanbul. For example, you can take a day tour from Istanbul to Ephesus. This is a great tour to take if you are interested in history as Ephesus is an ancient city with many memorable features. One of the must-see features is the Temple of Artemis which is listed as one of the 7 ancient wonders of the world.
There are also private tours available, for example, you can take a private 2-day tour to Cappadocia from Istanbul. Cappadocia is known for having several beautiful churches and monasteries. It has cave villages and awesome rock formations and is a UNESCO world heritage site that is well worth a trip if you can swing it. There are so many tours to choose from in Turkey. You may have a hard time choosing, but what is great is that there are options for all tastes and budgets.
We are sure you will love your trip to Turkey!
