Two-in-one Mediterranean: Greece and Turkey

Who doesn’t love a good two-for-the-price-of-one deal? Throw in the word “Mediterranean” and we’re sold. 

Here are few excellent reasons to combine a trip to Greece with a hop over the Agean Sea to Turkey:

1. They’re closer than you might think

Geographically, these two countries are a stone’s throw away from each other – right across the gorgeous Agean Sea (did someone say cruise?). So not only will you save a bundle in flights by combining a trip to Greece with Turkey, you can also fit in some of the most incredible sights in the world: think a visit to the Parthenon, a magical hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia, the whirling dervishes of Konya and a donkey-ride up the volcanic hills of Santorini. 


2. Your taste buds will thank you

Turkey is world-famous for its strong coffee, savoury döner kebabs, flaky sweet baclava and lokum (Turkish delight). But time here will yield more local favourites: the bagel-like simit bread, gözleme (a savoury filled flatbread), or ayran, a salty yogurt-based drink. Then when in Greece, stuff yourself with soft warm pitta and fresh tzatziki; white bean “fasolada” soup; spit-roasted chicken and lamb souvlaki; olives or crumbly feta – and chase it with a shot of liquorice-flavoured ouzo. Holiday calories don’t count, right?  


3. Relax on the Aegean

Right now, Travel Vision is offering great deals on trips to Greece (with some crossover into Turkey), starting from R23 415. Their trips are an easy introduction to the region if you aren’t a fan of the nitty-gritty logistics of planning. You’ll see all the highlights, without any of the hassle. Choose from the 9-night Greece and Turkey cruise, which visits Athens, Delphi/Meteora, Mykonos, Kusadasi/Patmos, Rhodes, Crete, Santorini. Or the 10-night Greece Island Hopping package visiting Athens, Mykonos, Paros, Santorini.


4. Sometimes more is more

There are many types of travellers: those who are content to chill on a beach for two weeks versus those who want to do, see, hear, smell, taste and touch everything, and everyone between. If you’ve pitched up at a destination and it’s way too hectic – or too quiet – for your tastes, it’s nice to have a reason to move on; combining two countries on a trip allows you to do just that.
