An English-speaking guide from Dijon Travel team leads the group. We will have a private minibus with driver.  A cook at campsites, and mules and mule drivers for luggage are provided when necessary.

We eat Turkish meals in restaurants and at camp, prepared with local products. Sometimes we will have a  picnic lunch which each participant will carry in his day bag. For mountain treks we provide snacks.

All transfers are by private minibus. Transportation in mountain areas is made by appropriate vehicles (4 wheel drive or tractor) or by pack animals.

Of course we ensure all aspects of your trip respect the recommended public health and sanitary guidelines.

A daypack is needed to carry the items you want to use during the daytime: camera, pullover, water-bottle. Walking boots, open lightweight shoes or a pair of trainers, shorts/skirts, gloves, hat, casual clothes, rain/wind jacket, water bottle, personal medicine-box, sun cream etc.

No technical difficulty during trekking and ascension. Walks are on good trails. Duration of the walks vary depending on days and tours: the average is about 5/6 hours per day.

Just for you and your family or your close friends, dream up your ideal trip and let us craft your vacation around your interests, your budget and your travel style. Experience the hidden treasures of Turkey at your own speed.

Of course we ensure all aspects of your trip respect the recommended public health and sanitary guidelines. For a minimum of 2 travellers you can travel anywhere in Turkey to the sites you want to visit as your own private group just with your guide. Sit back and enjoy your vacation, our travel consultants take the stress out of travel planning.

We stay in good category hotels (3 or 4 stars) in Istanbul and Ankara, at the beginning and at the end of the tour and in "pensions" and comfortable hotels in Cappadocia and elsewhere. During mountain stays, we provide spacious double tents (1 tent for 2 persons), mattresses and all camping gear needed (mess-tent for the evening, kitchen tent, cooking utensils, cutlery, plates etc.). Campsites are selected according the natural beauty of the site and the presence of drinking water. Clients must bring their own sleeping bags and personal mountain equipment. On boat cruises we sleep in cabins or out on deck if weather permits; bed-linen and towels provided.

Our perfectly bilingual guides are meticulously selected according to their experience in walking in mountainous areas and leading groups with good relational skills. They have in-depth cultural and historic knowledge of the areas visited and go the extra mile to make sure our guests are delighted with their stay in Turkey. Of course all our guides have obtained their cultural guiding licence qualification from the Turkish Tourism Ministry.
