  • Why we love Turkey

    • Drift through the Sapphire Coast between Fethiye and Antalya on a not-especially-fast sailing boat
    • Fly over the fairy chimneys of Cappadocia at dawn by hot air balloon. A whole valley of these extraordinary stone columns reaching up like arms of the earth in the silent pink light, slowly drifting beneath you, resolute and unmoving
    • Stand in quiet contemplation at the beaches of the Dardenelles, like Gallipoli
    • Try a testi kebab, an Anatolian speciality. It’s a variation on the kebab you already know; a mixture of meat and vegetables cooked in a clay pot or jug over fire. Then, when it’s ready, the pot is smashed open and you eat from it with a chunk of Turkish bread
    • At every corner, Turkey happily offers visitors sensual pleasures: where else but Hierapolis can you bathe among Roman remains in thermal waters, or other than at Kekova could you swim among the ruins of an ancient sunken city?

We don’t tolerate any form of sexual harassment at Peregrine and Geckos, either between passengers or involving our leaders or local operators.

    What's it like to be at the Gallipoli ANZAC Day Ceremony?

    By Sarah Yates

    I wandered off in the darkness to find a quiet spot from which I could warm myself and watch the service. The track was rough, bumpy and crumbling. There were Turkish soldiers everywhere; with guns so big they looked pretend. Even though the guns on these shores were long silent...

    Impressions of Istanbul

    By Oliver Pelling

    Before visiting Turkey, I had few preconceptions of the place. I had fewer still of Istanbul. This likely isn’t a good thing for someone who writes about travel for a living to admit, but there we go.

    All I had rattling around my mind were a few stock travel...
