Getaway to Mesopotamia | South East Tour of Turkey | 7 Nights
So spectacular are the ruins and natural beauty of Western Turkey that many travelers neglect to venture out to the exotic and compelling sites of the Southeast. Long before the great Greek and Roman cities rose up along the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts, civilizations even more ancient flourished in an area lying between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, known as The Fertile Crescent. Much of what was once northern Mesopotamia lies in what is now Southeastern Turkey. It is the land of the Hittites, Urartians, Assyrians, and Sumerians, the birthplace of Abraham, the site of the world's first university, and the first Christian communities - a rugged, breath-taking land in which successive cultures mingled with and influenced each other.
Today, we can only marvel at the awe-inspiring landmarks and relics bearing testament to millennia of continuous habitation in a region that was once the technological, scientific and cultural center of the world. Over the past decade, archeologists have excavated stunning new finds, including the unique Roman mosaics of Zeugma, which have been carefully preserved with the help of UNESCO.
With coastal Turkey such a magnet for travelers, the Southeast, in particular, is a region where our "insider" knowledge and expertise enable travelers with limited time to concentrate on visiting the sites of greatest interest, without the hassle of arranging for guides, transport, meals, entrance fees and accommodation. What's more, we help you to become acquainted with one of the timeless charms of the region: its people. We arrange for you to enjoy the local hospitality, culture and cuisine - all of which are legendary, even among Turks living in other parts of the country.
As always, we arrange air-conditioned, comfortable transport and professional drivers, accommodations in top hotels, knowledgeable, friendly guides and an itinerary that helps you make the most of your stay in Turkey. Relax, and marvel at the glories of Southeastern Turkey, the Gateway to Mesopotamia. And leave the rest to us.

If you would like to visit any other places not mentioned in this itinerary we are happy to make a tailor-made tour to suit your individual requirements.
