Our philosophy is simple - to get out of the cities and into the countryside where you can discover the charm and beauty of Turkey, Istanbul in Turkey, Gallipoli, the Bozdac Mountain and the Black Sea. Walking with a small, like minded group is the best way to explore them. It is important to have time to "smell the roses", not to rush through but to soak up the atmosphere. We are great believers that the journey is what matters, not the destination! All our holidays in the Middle East are guided - we are not there to overload you with facts and figures but discreetly share with you the wonderful places we have discovered during our "journey".
