CULTURAL TURKEY

Turkey has been home to many great civilizations from Neolithic times up to the present. These cultures are like stones of different shapes and sizes all going together to make up a wall, each stone of which represents a civilization. No single stone is necessarily more impressive than another. We offer you the chance to tour this ‘wall’ from its beginning to its end and anything in between. Our specially prepared tour programs will enable you to turn over whichever stones you wish.
