Silk Road Part II - Turkey!!
24th May 2021 - 9th Jun 2021
(COVID permitting!)

Silk Road Part II - Turkey!!

Join Jan & Jeremy on a personalised, escorted, accommodated & catered adventure to one of the most exotic destinations in the world as we complete the second half of our journey along the Great Silk Road!

Silk Road Part II - Turkey!!

We followed in the footsteps of Genghis Khan, Marco Polo & Alexander the Great along the Great Silk Road from Xian to Tashkent, now we’re continuing the journey westward to the Aegean Sea. Spend 17 spectacular days with us as we travel across Turkey from Van to such destinations as Mt Ararat, Tatvan, Urfa, Cappadocia, Ankara & Istanbul (formerly Constantinople); then perhaps take an optional & emotional five-day tour to the beaches of Canakkale (Gallipoli) to honour the ANZAC legacy. An amazing time is guaranteed, quality transport, meals, accommodation & activities are included & you’ll be in the safe hands of experienced local English-speaking guides & two Australian escorts.

What an Adventure!

For centuries the ancient Silk Road was a trade route used to transport silks, spices, livestock, produce, culture, customs & even religion from the Orient to the Mediterranean & back again. Unfortunately due to modern-day politics & troubled borders we are no longer able to access the full length of the Silk Road past Uzbekistan, but we CAN visit Turkey & we intend to do it justice! The most prominent remains of the Silk Road are in Cappadocia & although the old caravan path is now covered by a modern asphalt highway, many of the Seljuk caravanserais survive to tell the story. We’ll go to mosques, markets, museums & heritage sites; enjoy a bevy of cultural activities; meet local people & learn about the country’s fascinating history. We’ll taste delicious traditional food; travel in coaches, trains, & mini-buses, see whirling Dervishes; have an optional fishing excursion & even learn how to belly dance!

What’s Included in the Package?

Airport transfers, ground transport, most meals, entries to attractions, guiding services, Pre- Departure Workshop (Perth only) and Pre-Departure Kit are all included in the package. International air fares are additional.
