Riding the Ottoman Empire CTU

Turkey

Fun roads, rich history and unbelievably hospitable people make Turkey a dream destination.

Think Turkey, and famous names like Ephesos, Cappadocia and Pergamon quickly come to mind. On this tour you can embark on an unforgettable balloon ride over Cappadocia, witness the the famous dance of the whirling dervishes in Konya and experience the unbelievable hospitality of the Turkish people. No matter where you stop, someone always offers you some Turkish tea, a very nice habit that you will quickly get used to. Pretty soon you will change from a visitor into a friend on a motorcy-cle, wrapped in Turkish hospitality and absorbing the manifold impressions the country has to offer. Needless to say, all of these highlights come in combination with countless curves and twisties.

Whether you cruise along the coastal road in the south of Turkey or discover some backcountry roads that will allow you a deeper insight into the Turkish culture, the roads just seem to be made for riding a motorcycle.
