In his latest blog post, Dale Dunlop, The Maritime Explorer, continues on this tour around Turkey and stops at Antalya - Visiting Another Great Turkish City. If you are interested in dates and prices for this trip please check out our Small Group Tours to Turkey.
Our western Turkey odyssey with Adventures Abroad continues as we depart the site of ancient Phaselis and head for the city of Antalya where we will spend a few days exploring both the city and the surrounding area. It is the largest Turkish city on the Mediterranean coast (Izmir is on the Aegean Sea) with a population of around one million and is actually the fastest growing city in the country. There's a good reason for this as Antalya has a beautiful location on the coast with the fabled Taurus Mountains in the background. It is home to one of the largest and best preserved historic districts in the country, lined with Ottoman houses. Other parts of Antalya feature leafy boulevards and seaside promenades. It also has one of the best archaeological museums in a country famous for them. Please join our small group as we explore this most interesting city.
Papeete - Walking Tahiti’s Capital City
In his latest blog post, Dale Dunlop, The Maritime Explorer, wanders around Papeete - Walking Tahiti’s Capital City. If you are interested in what Adventures Abroad has to offer, please check out our Small Group Tours.
This is my third post from a trip Alison I took with Adventures Abroad to French Polynesia. In the first post, I gave my reasons for both visiting French Polynesia and why Adventures Abroad was my tour operator of choice. In the second I described the great relaxing atmosphere at the Te Moana Resort where the tour began. In this post, I'll give my reasons for coming to French Polynesia at least a day early so you will have time to explore the capital city of Papeete on foot. Please join Alison and me as we tour the only actual city in French Polynesia.
Phaselis - Romantic Forested Ruins by the Sea
In his latest blog post, Dale Dunlop, The Maritime Explorer, read about his next destination right on the Mediterranean Sea under the shadow of Mount Olympos, Phaselis - Romantic Forested Ruins by the Sea.

In this post, we continue our journey through western Turkey with Adventures Abroad guide Yasemin Reis as we enter the Province of Antalya. It is as rich in archaeological sites as any area in Turkey as we will find out over the next few days. Our first stop in the province was a visit to ancient Myra where we marvelled at the Lycian rock cut tombs and gazed upon the amazing frescoes in the Basilica of St. Nicholas. Our next stop is at the Greco/Roman city of Phaselis which has a beautiful location right on the Mediterranean Sea under the shadow of Mount Olympos. Please join our group as we explore yet another great archaeological site.
Myra - Visiting the Home of St. Nicholas
In his latest blog post, Dale Dunlop, The Maritime Explorer, travelling in Turkey, stops at Myra - Visiting the Home of St. Nicholas. If you are interested in dates and prices for this trip please check out our Small Group Tours to Turkey.
For the past two days, our western Turkey Adventures Abroad tour has been stationed in the small Mediterranean town of Kas. Yesterday we enjoyed an outing by boat on the Turquoise Coast which will surely be one of the highlights of the entire trip, but it's time to move on. Today we have several interesting stops before reaching the city of Antalya starting with Myra which quite plausibly was the home of the original St. Nicholas. Who knew that Santa Claus came from warmer climes than the North Pole? Please join us as we see more Lycian rock cut tombs before meeting St. Nicholas.
Te Moana - A Great Introduction to Tahiti
In his latest blog post, Dale Dunlop, The Maritime Explorer, travels to and blogs about Te Moana – A Great Introduction to Tahiti. If you are interested in what Adventures Abroad has to offer, please check out our Small Group Tours.
This is my second post from a recent trip Alison and I took with Adventures Abroad to French Polynesia. The first post was an overview of the entire trip and gave the reasons why I thought it was pretty well unique in terms of what tour operators are offering in this area of the world. In this post I'm going to get down to specifics, starting with the first place on the itinerary, the wonderful Te Moana Tahiti Resort just outside of Papeete. Here's why I think you should take the time to spend at least one extra day here before the official tour begins.
The Turquoise Coast by Boat
In his latest blog post, Dale Dunlop, The Maritime Explorer, takes in The Turquoise Coast by Boat. If you are interested in dates and prices for this trip please check out our Small Group Tours to Turkey.
In the previous post, we arrived in the small town of Kas having stopped at Fethiye along the way to view the Lycian rock tombs. A few years ago Alison and I and some friends embarked upon a week-long Blue Cruise that took us along the Turquoise Coast of Turkey to some of the most beautiful places on Earth. It was one of the most idyllic and memorable weeks of my life. Today Alison and I are going to get a chance to relive some of these memories as we embark on a boat cruise with the rest of our group as we continue our exploration of western Turkey with Adventures Abroad. We will visit some of the most popular places on the Blue Cruise route. Please come aboard.
