The Escape trip starts from Dalyan where cliffside tombs stand testament to a time forgotten. From Gocek, cruise along the Mediterranean Sea with overnights at exotic ports and island moorings. You will also experience the exotic and charming towns of Kalkan and Kas, and the Ottoman city of Antalya, where we treat you to the luxuries of the Ruin Adalia Hotel.
Only Great Explorations:
- Small groups, extraordinary guides, and authentic experiences.
- Each of our trips in Turkey has a local guide and support vehicle driver.- traveling with us every day, they add immensely to the experience.
- A ride you will never forget: Kalkan to Kas and so many others.
- Our private yacht, with captain and crew and superb food.
- Order off the menu at restaurants you won’t find in guidebooks.
- Distinctive, charming hotels too small for larger groups.
- We design and operate our own trips so there are only good surprises.
In Turkey we offer extensions to both Istanbul and Cappadocia. Although the Istanbul extension would normally be done before your trip and the Cappadocia afterwards, you can do them before or after. See prices and inclusions below.
STRAIGHT TALK: Turkey has seen many improvements over the years, particularly road paving and bike lanes. We stay in a variety of hotels on this trip, and we hope you’ll find each authentic, comfortable and memorable. The Escape trip of 9 days/8 nights has 5 days of cycling (two days of other activities), whereas the longer Expedition trip has 8 days of cycling – we recommend the Expedition length trip if you can.
