Travel Guide

Best time to visit Turkey

Turkey is very large country, 3 times the size of Great Britain. Geographically, Turkey is located between Asia and Europe and surrounded by 4 different seas: the North Black Sea, the South Mediterranean, the Aegean sea, and the Istanbul Sea of Marmara. The Climate can change massively depending on where you are. The Mediterranean coast climate is mainly sunnier and warmer, whereas the Agean sea, Marmara sea, and Central Turkey are sunny, but cooler than the south coast.

The best time to visit turkey will depend on what type of holiday you're looking for. If you are planning to go on a Multi Centre holiday within Istanbul, Cappadocia, or along the coast for example, then the best time to go would be early or late summer; April, May, Jun or September, October. If you're after a Gulet Cruise or a beach holiday on the coast, but would like to avoid the heat, then it's best not to go in July or August.

"Sadly like many people our holiday for five people was cancelled due to Covid-19. The date of our holiday meant it was on, then off, then on and finally off again. Throughout all this I can't fault how Akin and his team dealt with all the hassle at a most difficult time for his company.  The refund was dealt with swiftly and our party can only thank everyone for all their help."  Mr Brian Chappell - 2 Jun 2020

"Our holiday in Turkey exceeded our expectations. Cappadocia was interesting and beautiful. It was exciting staying in cave. Istanbul was amazing. We had very little previous experience of Turkey and Turkish people, so we enjoyed the beauty of the country and friendly hospitality of the people. We felt safe and not at all threatened in the city. The quality of food and service in restaurants was good. Efes beer is very tasty."  Mr David Hyam
