 Go for a Turkish Wellness Experience

Immerse yourself in some Turkish spa culture and treat yourself and your group to a trip to a Turkish Hamman or traditional Turkish baths! Discover the respiratory and immune system benefits of the gorgeous hammans as you relax and feel the stress melt away. 


Visits to Turkish baths are experiences in themselves without the spa treatments – but why would you want to skip the spa treatment? Many of the Turkish bathhouses are architectural and historic wonders in their own rights, dating back hundreds of years, with one bath in Istanbul built in the 1400’s – definitely one of the top incentives in Turkey and worth a visit!

Attend a Sufi Whirling Dance Performance

Take in the dancing, the music and the peaceful meditation in an incentive that will ensnare all of the senses.
