    THE POWER OF OUR LOCAL KNOWLEDGE

    Turkey – just the name itself conjures up visions of oriental splendor, mystery, and intrigue. This was the meeting point of the world’s three great civilizations; Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman. Turkey was the nucleus of the 1,000 years Byzantine Empire with its capital established at Constantinople, now Istanbul. It was here too, that early Christianity first took root, to be replaced with the advent of Islam, first under the Arabs, then under the Seljuk Turks and the Ottoman Turks.

    But Turkey is not all history. Turkey offers you seas, mountain ranges, high plateaus, and fertile river valleys – an excellent destination for lovers of nature.

    Moreover, today’s Turkey is a safe, modern country with a booming economy. Her cities with their glittering shopping facilities, business towers, and an unparalleled combination of historical sights, state-of-the-art conference facilities, and world-class hotels make it the ideal destination for exciting and memorable concepts of incentive programs including team building ideas, meetings, and congresses.

    FAQ

    We know what gets asked a lot about bringing groups to Turkey. Here’s our fast track answers, so you know.

    WHAT IS THE EASIEST WAY TO MAKE PAYMENTS IN TURKEY?

    You may find ATMs almost at every street corner. The international credit card Visa is the most practical. Euros and US dollars are mostly accepted and there are many money exchange offices in the cities and tourist areas. Traveler’s checks are perhaps less practical in the sense that you need to queue at the bank.

    HOW CAN WE COMMUNICATE WITH PEOPLE IN TURKEY?

    Turkish is not an easy language to learn and unless you have special interest it will not be necessary for basic communication throughout the country. Almost in all of the touristic places, English will be the most spoken and referred language. Especially in holiday resorts, people can speak at least a little English, German, Russian and French.
    In case there remains no choice of verbal communication, you might then experience the various creative ways Turkish people present using any kind of tool (starting from the body language) to understand and be able to meet your needs.

    WHAT IS FOOD LIKE IN TURKEY?

    Considered to be one of world’s greatest cuisines along with the French and the Chinese, Turkish Cuisine promises a unique culinary feast for the visitors. Turkey enjoys an abundance of fresh food produced locally because of the pleasant climate and rich soil. The long coastline Turkey has along the Mediterranean Sea means there is always plenty of fresh sea food and vegetables on offer. In fact Turkey is one of the few countries that produce more food than it consumes and is able to export food surpluses.
    People in Turkey love salad and this is almost always served before the main food course in any big meal. There are many types of delicious salad and dips served at lunch and dinner as appetizers. If you are visiting a town on the coast of Turkey you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to sea food, which is always caught locally and fresh. Fish is usually fried or poached and served with vegetables and lemon juice. If you prefer eating meat then Turkey has great lamb, chicken and beef which are usually cut up and served as a kebab. Kebab is a staple food in Turkey and is charcoal grilled before being served in pita bread stuffed with salad and sauce.

    ARE THERE ANY ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION RESTRICTIONS?

    The same alcohol restrictions apply in Turkey as in the rest of the Western world. Wine bars, American bars, Beer bars and local taverns offer all kinds of alcohol – world famous brands as well as local ones, served any time during the day and night. The same applies in hotels, restaurants, night clubs and discotheques.

    IS THERE A CERTAIN DRESS CODE TO RESPECT?

    There are no official dress codes to respect and it is not compulsory for women to wear head scarves. However headscarf for women will be required before entering the mosques where everybody is also asked to remove shoes during their visit. If your clothes are inappropriate, you will be lent a shawl or a scarf at the entrance. Outside the big cities, as in Western Europe, it is always best not to shock the local people by wearing revealing clothes. In Istanbul, as in other cities and seaside resorts, miniskirts, shorts and low-tops fit in with the setting
