This photography tour starts and ends in Istanbul, one of the world great historical cities.

From there we travel back in time to the eastern borders of Georgia, Armenia, Iran, Iraq and Syria,

where the population is made up of mostly Kurds and the lifestyles are more traditional and nomadic.

The landscape, along with the climate, changes from the north to the south. Then, as we travel back

towards the west, we encounter the surreal landscapes of Cappadocia and the historical features left

behind by the Roman and Byzantine empires.

As we are travelling late Autumn this means less tourist and autumn colours in the western sector.

Mike & Jackie's believe that they are offering you the best Turkey offers, photographically speaking.
