“We have just a few places left on these exceptional holidays of a lifetime, so these special offers are a tremendous opportunity to discover the ancient wonders of Turkey” says director, Peter Sommer. “Only a couple of cabins remain on these fascinating escourted cruises. Each tour is a magical two week trip – that offers peaceful relaxation, wonderful Turkish food, and superb swimming. With some of the most enchanting ancient sites in the world thrown in to the mix, they’re a real archaeological adventure”

These three vacations explore three different sections of Turkey’s wonderful south west coast.

From Halicarnassus to Ephesus – visits some of the very biggest and best preserved ancient cities in the world, including Ephesus, Didyma, Miletus, and Priene
Cruising the Carian Coast – a journey on a breathtaking undeveloped coastline with spectacular sites to see including Rhodes, Caunos, and Knidos
Sailing the Lycian Shore – explores a virtually untouched turquoise coast, littered with some of the most fascinating sites of antiquity, including Ayrkanda, Phaselis, and Olympos

Once a day we visit one of the antique cities that adorn this timeless coast. We stroll along ancient roads lined with wild herbs, or through olive trees strewn with rock tombs. We have the chance to snorkel over sunken harbours, and climb rocky fastnesses for unrivalled vistas. From mighty theatres to churches floored with mosaics, each site is an archaeological adventure, part of a historical puzzle that reveals a remarkable story of human civilisation.
