Westminster Classic Tours
In 2014, we are offering a number of land tours in addition to our traditional gulet cruises.
The season begins with a tour to southeast Turkey with lecturer, Shane Brennan. Following the high level of interest in his Last Chance to See Hasankeyf tours in 2013, Shane’s spring tour will focus on the cultures and communities of this rarely visited part of the country. Richard Stoneman will be lecturing on an exciting new land tour of Classical Turkey. This tour includes some of Turkey’s most magnificent sites including Pergamon, Ephesos, Aphrodisias and Troy which should be stunning in springtime.
We are delighted to welcome archaeologist Eve MacDonald to our team. Eve will be lecturing on our Cruising the Cyclades tour with Jeremy Barnett on board the beautiful Aegean Clipper and she will join Richard Stoneman for Lycia with Kastellorizo in September.
Highlights of our autumn programme include a new walking tour in Lycia with John Weston and, as we approach the Gallipoli centenary, James McKay will lead a unique tour which aims to place Gallipoli in the context of a long history which includes the Trojan Wars, the Persian Invasions and the Campaigns of Alexander the Great.
2013 was a very good year for tailor-made tours and we hope that 2014 will be equally successful! If you have a party of 4 to 24, we can arrange a private charter for you. Please call for information about possible itineraries in Turkey, the Greek Islands and Croatia.
