Location: İstanbul

Istanbul Old City Tour (B)


Set off today of your full day tour of Istanbul! Spread across two continents, this historically important city played an integral role in the development of both the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires. Visit the famous 17th century Blue Mosque, the Aya Sofya museum, former residence of the Ottoman Sultans at Topkapi Palace, and the Hippodrome. Overnight in Istanbul.

Gallipoli Battlefields & Memorials (B/D)


This morning you'll take a drive to Gallipoli, where you will receive a fully guided tour of this World War I battlefield site. Once home to some of history's fiercest battles, today the site contains a plethora of memorials. Visit the Lone Pine and Chunuk Bair memorials, ANZAC Cove, Johnston's Jolly, The Nek and the Gallipoli Museum.

Day 4: Canakkale - Kusadasi, Turkey

Location: Kuşadası

Troy & The Acropolis of Pergamum (B/D)


Start your day with a short drive to the ancient city of Troy. Lying undiscovered until midway through the 19th century, the excavations brought back to life the legend of the Trojan horse and the poems of Homer. Drive south to the acropolis of Pergamum, a former kingdom where you will have a full tour, including the Temple of Trajan and the famous library, which helped shape Pergamum into a renowned cultural and political centre. Overnight in Kusadasi.

Day 5: Kusadasi, Turkey

Location: Kuşadası

Ephesus, Sirince & Kusadasi (B/D)


After breakfast this morning, visit Ephesus, the city that at one time housed 250,000 people and is regarded as one of the best preserved ancient cities in the Mediterranean. Discover the Temple of Artemis and explore the ancient marble streets of this ruined Roman city. In the afternoon, visit the vineyard village of Sirince and learn about the history of carpet weaving. Overnight in Kusadasi.

Day 6: Kusdasi - Pamukkale, Turkey

Location: Pamukkale

Pamukkale & Hierapolis (B/D)


Your day starts with a drive to Pamukkale, site of the white calcium terraces known as travertines. Pamukkale is one of the most extraordinary natural wonders of Turkey; the buildings appearing to be made of snow or clouds as a result the hot thermal springs that pour down the hillside depositing calcium carbonate, which solidifies as travertine. We call this geological fairyland Pamukkale, or 'Cotton Castle.'


The ruins of Hierapolis are the other main attraction. The city was founded in 190 B.C. by Eumenes II, king of Pergamon. In the 2nd and 3rd centuries, it reached the height of its development as a Roman thermal bath epicentre. Hierapolis has extensive ruins: the city walls, the octagonal Martyrium of St. Philip, the 2nd century theater, Temple of Apollo, basilica, then the necropolis which spreads 2 km and contains ancient tombs. This area is considered to be one of the best-preserved cemeteries in all of Anatolia. The thermal hot springs have been used since Roman times, now you too can take a relaxing soak in these mineral-rich waters. Overnight in Pamukkale.

Day 7: Pamukkale - Cappadocia, Turkey

Location: Cappadocia

Silk Road to Konya (B/D)


Today, travel back in time fand follow the ancient Silk Road towards Konya. Learn more about the history of this important trade route with a stop at the Sultanhani Caravanserai, before getting to Konya and visiting the Mevlana museum. Overnight in Cappadocia.

Day 8: Cappadocia, Turkey

Location: Cappadocia

Cappadocia (B/D)


Today head out and explore the beautiful and surreal landscape of Cappadocia. Unlike anywhere else on earth, this setting creates a fairytale view full of improbable rock formations and underground villages.

Overnight in Cappadocia.

To this day, this is the best tour we've ever done together as a couple! The fun activities, great hotels and nice guides worth the money! We were always taken care of and they made sure that we had a good time. This tour is definitely worth taking.

The Bamba Team really made my journey one of the most memorable experiences of my life! Still so nice and supportive! They handled everything and responded to each question within a few minutes. I wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone. Especially if you want to do a lot of activities and travel to a lot of different places without feeling rushed. They've also helped me with specific issues that weren't covered by the tour, as well as answering general questions. Thank you so much for making my journey so enjoyable!

The tour was fantastic; I was able to visit some of Japan's most beautiful locations, and the accommodations were excellent, with convenient access to the city's best attractions. Also, our tour guide was fantastic. I will pick bamba again and recommend the tour to anyone who wants to see Japan while having a good time!!

I only have good words about our trip to Kenya. The entire experience was totally magical and I struggle to say how fantastic it was. We were fortunate enough to have a brilliant vehicle for ourselves, but we had great luck with David for our guide too. He was very knowledgeable, courteous and nice. Thank you for helping to create this fantastic safari experience. I Highly recommend this company.

Bamba Experience has been the best tour guide I've ever had. Every tour has been a thrilling experience. There are so many things to choose from. Bamba has been extremely helpful in providing us with all of the necessary information for our departures and activities! Bamba has made this a simple and enjoyable experience. I'll certainly tell my friends and family about it! Thank you very much, Bamba!!

Feb 20 2020

We organized a trip through Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia on the hop-on, hop-off bus. It made the trip so much simpler for us as first-time travelers because we just had to send an email to arrange the bus, which avoided the hassle of looking for the best price and so on! We also had a number of tours included, they were all amazing and saved us the trouble of trying to find the best offers on our own; it also meant we got to see a lot of stuff we wouldn't have seen otherwise. Overall, it was a fantastic experience that I will strongly suggest and use again!

Our Bamba tour of Vietnam was fantastic. We had a lot of new experiences and all of the help we needed to make this a stress-free vacation. The well-organized accomodation and transportation were excellent. We will certainly use Bamba in the future.

Jun 25 2019

I had booked our Uyuni Salt Flats & Desert Adventure 3D/2N (Uyuni to Atacama) tour via an Australian travel agency, but they had made an error and refused to assist us or take responsibility. This was very difficult for us because we wanted to have a stress-free honeymoon. I contacted Bamba and I asked if we could talk on the phone so they made the improvements to our tour reservation that our travel agent declined to make. The quality of service was exceptional and they generously offered to us a complimentary gift because it was our honeymoon. I can't say enough good things about Bamba.
