Group Solo Travel in Turkey

Travel solo as part of a group tour to Turkey

Why travel solo to Turkey?

A solo group tour of Turkey unites classical architecture and an azure coastline with the country’s famously warm hospitality.

From sailing the Mediterranean coast and dining on fresh fish, to visiting the Unesco World Heritage Site of Ephesus and soaking up the dusky hues of Cappadocia’s fairy chimneys from a hot air balloon, Turkey is a country that packs a punch.

Its cities hold their own, too – a stroll through Istanbul’s atmospheric streets will gift you minarets, mosaics, and mosques, not to mention the heady aromas of the spice bazaar. And, of course, no trip to Turkey is complete without indulging in its rich food heritage, from gözleme (flatbread) pitstops and kebab banquets to a spread of meze washed down with a bottle of the country’s tasty fruit wine.

Our Turkey trips

Top places to visit in Turkey


Set around an azure bay with a gorgeous seafront promenade, Turkey’s third largest city is a laidback cultural hotspot. The palm-lined boulevards are dotted with elegant mosques and atmospheric bazaars, while ancient Greek and Roman ruins look down from the hilltops.


Famous for some of the world’s best preserved classical sites, the pretty countryside town of Selçuk is where you’ll be able to immerse yourself in Artemis Temple, Isa Bey Mosque and St John Basilica and Ephesus.


Home to the pastel fairy chimneys, which rise up from the ground and cover the landscape. The best way to experience them is up high in a hot air balloon, and from the driving seat of an ATV – both of which you can do with us.


Byzantine, Genoese, Ottoman, and modern Turkish architecture collide in Istanbul’s impressive skyline. When you’re not ogling beautiful buildings, you’ll be nosing around markets, learning about the nation’s rich cultural heritage and dining at some of the country’s best restaurants.
