Our CompanyRead Customer Testimonials

After 18 years of leading tours in Turkey, Asia Minor Travel & Tours opened an office in the United States in 1998 to better serve the needs of our customers. You can communicate
with our U.S. office or directly our Turkey office to plan and pay for your travel arrangements,
our Turkey office will help you with any last minute requests or any problems you may encounter while traveling in Turkey. This unique partnership allows for a more personalized service that you normally wouldn’t get from a mass-tour company.

Touring with Us

Asia Minor Travel & Tours specializes in custom tours with a strong archaeological and cultural focus. We give priority to meeting each participant?s needs and take pride in the personal attention we provide. Our tours are a wonderful learning experience as our guests meet many of the locals and gain an understanding of the Turkish people and culture. Additionally, we follow strict guidelines to preserve the environment and ecology. Simply, our goal is to provide the most comfortable way of travel possible within the limits of given budgets while our guests explore the country and enjoy the natural beauty of the land.

Qualified Staff

The majority of our staff members have an academic background, mainly in archaeology and history of architecture. All of our guides are experienced and have an in-depth knowledge of the areas we visit. They are fluent in English, well-mannered, flexible, and responsible, and all of them are officially certified professional guides.


Small Groups

The maximum limit for each group is 22, and we run tours for as few as two. Traveling in small groups allows the participants to get to know one another and also allows for more flexibility and spontaneity.

Urgup House hotel roomAccommodations

We carefully select hotels with high standards that also provide a genuine feeling of the local culture. We try to avoid international chain hotels, where possible. The hotels we choose always have modern amenities in every room. The cleanliness and safety of the facilities is one of our primary concerns.

Single Travelers

Some people join our tours with a companion, while others come on their own. We have lots of experience with single travelers, and our tours are often the beginning of lasting friendships.

For All Ages

Our tours are designed to be enjoyed by people of all ages and interests. Turkey is a fascinating destination that offers a memorable travel experience. Whether in the city or countryside, there is always something to stimulate young and old alike and arouse the spirit of adventure.

ShoppingRug shop in Cappadocia

We do not arrange any kind of scheduled group shopping. Tour participants will have plenty of free time to do their own shopping. Our experienced tour leader will provide you with information and suggestions on shopping if you desire. However, we will not take any responsibility for shopping or purchases made in Turkey.


Safety is high on our list of priorities. All of our drivers are experienced and have excellent driving records.

Traveling by Midi-bus

We use comfortable, air-conditioned buses, minibuses or cars, depending
on the size of the group. We use Turkish Airlines for air transportation in Turkey. If you have a problem that restricts movement you should inform us in advance.


We carefully choose our restaurants so you will have the opportunity to sample a wide variety of authentic Turkish cuisine, which is highly regarded around the world. In order to accomplish this, we usually choose restaurants outside of the hotel where you can enjoy your meal in the local atmosphere. We will do our best to accommodate special dietary
preferences as long as we are advised prior to your departure.


Our itineraries are designed to create a balance between traveling, sightseeing, and leisure time. Each trip has its own highlights. Detailed descriptions of tours can be found on the tour pages.
