The Aegean region of Turkey's east coast is a rich cultural blend of Greek and Turkish history, where ancient civilisations rose and fell many times across millennia. What we are left with is a treasure trove of archaeological sites unmatched almost anywhere else in the classical world, with the likes of Ephesus, Hierapolis and Didyma just waiting to be explored. For this week long, centre-based tour you will stay in the beautiful village of Sirince, famed for its attractive Ottoman Christian architecture. As well as in-depth tours of the region's main sites, you will enjoy wine tasting, and a traditional Turkish bath experience.
We have highlighted the standard of accommodation featured on a tour immediately above the tour itinerary.
In some cases, tours include some departures in one category and some in another: you can see and select the different tour types under ‘tour variations’. For these tours, the itinerary is generally the same and just the standard of accommodation varies. However, if there are any variations in the excursions included, these are shown within the itinerary.
Superior: Most Cox & Kings tours fall under this category and are based in 4- or 5-star accommodation, or the best available.
Luxury: These tours will usually feature 5-star de luxe accommodation throughout.
Standard: Simpler in emphasis, these itineraries typically feature 3- and 4-star accommodation throughout.
Discovery: This type of holiday is best suited to the hardier traveller, as it will typically include some quite basic accommodation, possibly longer and rougher road journeys and, in some cases, more arduous activities, such as trekking.
