Classic Turkey Tour & Yacht Cruise 2025

Turkey is home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations and is the meeting place of the Eastern and Western worlds. Join us on a journey to this fascinating land between not only Europe and Asia but also between yesterday and today. Our journey starts in Istanbul, where we will explore the interior and the treasures it holds. Then on to the vibrant resort beach town of Marmaris, a little bit Mediterranean, a little bit Middle East, and a little bit European, but unlike anywhere else in the world. Finally, relax on a 7-day cruise on a private traditional Turkish gullet.

Roommate Matching Policy

Roommate matching is done as a courtesy, and while most matches result in wonderful friendships, success is not guaranteed. If during the tour you decide you would no longer like to share a room with your roommate, you will need to request (and pay for) a single room at all accommodations. This can be shared between the two people in the room if it is a mutual decision. If you are a very light sleeper or snore, you may want to consider getting your own single room.
