Since 1997 Peten Travels has specialized in the design and delivery of tours within Turkey. We are one of the few tour companies operating within Turkey, that is 100 percent Turkish owned and operated. Our lecturers and guides, who lead participants into the very heart of Turkey’s history and pre-history, are carefully selected from the intellectual elite. In addition to their profound academic and practical mastery of their subject matter, our guides have a thorough command of the English language while being wonderful travel companions! On a Peten Travels tour all lectures and tours of archaeological sites are conducted by the project directors or key staff members. This provides for a richly detailed and unique perspective for all of our travelers.

Our escorted holidays are ‘Journeys of Discovery’. Each features an extraordinary selection of exotic and fascinating sites, many of which are tours unique to Peten Travels. Every itinerary has been meticulously designed and planned to provide the traveler with a genuine sense of in-depth discovery. Additionally, Peten Travels’ flawless attention to comfort, style, expert guidance and high value-for-money assures you of a remarkable journey.

Our journeys also provide participants with a unique glimpse into the lives of the Turkish people along with their daily challenges, their proud traditions, goals and political environment. Our guests not only meet privately with internationally renowned experts working in the field, but with the local people of Anatolia as well.
