TURKEY ~ Explore & Sail

11 day tour including 6 night cruise

Experience the sights and sounds of fascinating Istanbul - amid the calls of street vendors or grand mosques at prayer-time. Browse for souvenirs among the dazzling old bazaars and unwind aboard a Bosphorus tour. Indulge in an amazing history lesson among the ruins of ancient Ephesus and bask on one of the Mediterranean's greatest pleasures - a Gulet cruise.

Your gulet is a traditional pine wood yacht, with a pointed fore and round aft, with a double or single mast, and carrying 8 - 12 passengers. They are comfortably equipped with all the necessary amenities. This is a relaxing sailing trip along the Aegean and the Mediterranean Coasts, through impeccably clear turquoise waters, meandering in and out of the isolated bays and coves, visiting the harbours of small picturesque villages and weaving along a coastline rich in ruins of distant times gone by.

Vibrant, fascinating Istanbul - the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, cruise on the Bosphorus.
The ancient ruins of Ephesus
