Since 2001 Discover Turkey has been running unique small group coach tours which take you off-the-beaten-track. We still have the same touring philosophy as we did back then but now include even more unique experiences and exciting destinations as well as a higher quality accommodation.
Small Groups of up to 20
Our groups are tailored for no more than 20 travellers to ensure you enjoy more personalised service. These itineraries prove to be the best way to experience everything Turkey has to offer, the most logical sequence of sightseeing, to maximise your holiday.
Small group journeys still offer exceptional experiences balanced with the flexibility of free days, where you can choose to explore in your own time, relax at the hotel or have your guide arrange one of our optional activities.
Smaller group sizes also mean we can guarantee our tours will run once we have just four guests booked.
By limiting our group sizes to a maximum of 20 passengers, we are experts at providing a friendly, relaxed, and flexible form of touring. In fact, our belief in the advantages of small group travel underpins everything that we do – from the type of vehicles that we use, to the places we visit, and the accommodation that we hand select. In many ways, it couldn’t be further from a typical coach touring experience.
Authentic Local Experiences
At Discover Turkey Travel we believe that you will find the heart and soul of a nation in its regional areas.
Our included Authentic Local Experiences ensure you’ll really get to know the people, customs and history of Turkey.
Enjoy intimate performances, see demonstrations by local producers and tradesmen.
In fact, the very nature of our tours means that you’re often interacting with the locals, as you leisurely explore towns and villages that aren’t on the tourist trail.
Leisurely Paced Itineraries
Forget sunrise starts and long days hopping on and off the bus.
We rarely leave before 8.30am and give each stop the attention it deserves – keeping long drives to a minimum.
And giving you plenty of time to explore at your own pace.
Keeping to small groups also allows us to set a more relaxed pace – after all, the tour is your holiday so no long drives and no early starts. We also build in plenty of free time to ensure that you have the chance to see things for yourself, socialise with other members of your group, and to get to know your knowledgeable Discover Turkey Tour Director
Our included Culinary Experiences enable you to enjoy truly authentic, locally sourced and produced cuisine. Dine at iconic restaurants run by award-winning chefs, take cooking classes using regional ingredients, visit local farms, enjoy food and wine tastings at local producers and combine two passions with foodie walking tours.
Furthermore, throughout our tours you’ll dine in small, authentic restaurants, frequented by the locals, and guaranteed to give a true reflection of the tastes of Turkey.
Our Luxury Mini-Coaches
Cast thoughts of long journeys spent zipping up and down motorways from your mind. Discover Turkey Travel promises a more leisurely style that gives you the freedom of travelling in your own vehicle – but with none of the hassle.
On the vast majority of our tours we travel by Mercedes Tourismo Coaches or Mercedes Vito mini-coaches. Think comfortable seats, air-conditioning and large windows for enjoying the view. With the flexibility to go anywhere a car can, we take the smaller roads through beautiful scenery and get right to the heart of tiny villages and buzzing cities.
Along the way, your tour leader can offer intriguing insights about the sights and, with long drives kept to a minimum, you’ll have plenty of time to stretch your legs and explore sites for yourself.
Most of our groups travel in purpose-built Mercedes Benz Sprinters that have been converted to the highest of European standards, with many boasting leather seats, fridges and panoramic windows and roofs.
But the advantages of travelling DiscoverTurkey way do not stop at our vehicles. As part of a smaller, select group we can open doors for you in all sorts of unexpected ways. Thanks to our small group philosophy, DiscoverTurkey can offer you a handpicked portfolio of Charming Accommodation.
Also look out for our Culinary Experiences. With a maximum of 20 people in each Discover Turkey group, we can schedule meals in authentic local locations.
