“This trip was amazing in every way. From the arrival to the departure, nothing was left out. Personalized attention and superb guides. Bottom line: Kensington Tours is definitely the best way to travel.”
Turkey tours offer visitors the chance to explore the many centuries-old buildings that are indicative of the country's storied history, but if you're looking to do something other than explore the famous structures, the country is also home to many idyllic beaches. There is plenty of coastline to choose from, but if you're looking for one of the most memorable beach trips you've ever had, there are several you can't miss.
Pirlanta Beach faces the Aegean Sea, and its crystal-clear water and almost impossibly-white sand make it a must see. Aside from being one of the most pristine beaches in the world, it is also one of the most conveniently located. The waters are just a short journey from the nearby town of Cesme, a small-coastal village that is ideal for anybody looking to get away from the fast-paced tourist hotspots.
You certainly won't be disappointed with a trip to Pirlanta, but if you're looking for a more remote getaway, Butterfly Valley is the most obvious choice. Located a little bit further down the coast in the region of Fethiye, Butterfly Valley sits in a beautiful gorge that was seemingly hand-carved out of the mountains surrounding it. The area is also well-suited for hiking if you're looking for something to do after lounging on the beach.
After seeing some of the best beaches Turkey has to offer, you should make the short journey and sample more beaches on a tour of Greece. Much like its neighbor to the west, Greece has many picturesque stretches of coastline. Among the most famous destinations is the town of Corfu, which is home to some of the most magnificent beaches in Europe, including at the Bay of St. George.
Look down in wonder at Buckingham Palace, the Palace of Westminster and St Paul’s Cathedral from your glass-walled pod on the London Eye, then gaze out over the Louvre and the Champs-Elysees from the top of the Eiffel Tower.
The scent of rich pine forests lingers in the breeze as the 13th-century ruins of Turaida Castle are revealed before your eyes in the lush Gauja River valley in a medieval sanctuary untouched by the march of time.
The aroma of dark roasted Viennese coffee hangs thick in the air as you tread the cobblestone laneways and bask in the elegant architecture, atmospheric cafes and refined restaurants in one of the most beautiful cities in Eastern Europe.
