Escorted tours normally include domestic flights, hotels, transportation, transfers to the airport/hotel, most meals and sightseeing. Turkey Escorted Tours are conducted by buses and usually no more than 2 nights are spent in each location visited. Escorted Tours are usually fast-paced and prices include much of the sightseeing.

Guided / Hosted Tours in Turkey

At the time of the early Christianity, Asia Minor (today’s Turkey) was one of the most important lands  because it was the center for the growing Christian movement in the early centuries.
