Short Turkey Getaway Tours - 2 to 5 days

Our mini stays are for those who want to get under the skin of such a great city. These are individual packages designed to give you the most out of your time without being in a group environment. You'll have time to explore at your own pace.

Soak up the ambience of the city that was once known as the capital of all cities with our Istanbul Mini Stays. Experience the exotic atmosphere of Istanbul, the only city to span two continents and the only city that has been a capital during two consecutive empires - Christian and Islamic.

Its charm and beauty and ability to embrace its eclectic mix of lustrous restaurants and groovy bars, combined with traditional Kahve (coffee houses for men only) and frenzied street markets is only some of its charm. Take a cruise along its spiritual heart, the Bosphorus and visit the Princes' Islands, as well as architectural masterpieces, ancient mosques, palaces and museums.

If it's bright lights and glamour you're after, then don't miss Istanbul By Night with a great show of traditional Turkish folklore dancing and entertainment. Indulge in delicate Turkish hors d'oeuvres or meze and dare if you will, Turkey's national drink, Raki. After dinner, a spectacular floor show of belly dancers and cultural folklore dancers.

For something totally different, why not spend a couple of days in Cappadocia on one of our Cappadocia Mini Stays. Explore underground cities, open air museums and caravanserais in one of the most surreal landscapes in the world.

If you're wanting to explore some untouched areas of Turkey, then our Eastern Explorer tour may be for you. Highlights include the mystical Mt Nemrut and the ancient city of Urfa, which hosts the world's oldest university and cone shaped mud huts.

If you don't like the sound of an overnight bus then fly. Internal flights from Istanbul to Cappadocia are surprisingly cheap. For more information email us at
