In this article, you will discover everything you need to know before going to Turkey. Beforehand, find out the advantages of participating in a group trip to Turkey in 2021!
Like many people who accompany me already know, I love travel groups. Whether for the opportunity to meet different people, or for the security to visit exotic places, or to scare off loneliness, or so many other reasons.
Turkey is a Eurasian country, which means that part of its territory belongs to the continent of Asia and part to Europe. Turkey's capital is Ankara, not Istanbul, as many people think! There are a few points to know before going to Turkey, and you will see them below.
Visa for Turkey
Brazilians do not need a visa to stay or visit Turkey for up to 90 days. Permission to enter the country is acquired upon arrival there. If you have a European passport and travel with it, it is necessary to apply for a visa in advance.
Have you ever wondered what currency is used in Turkey? There you go: Turkey's official currency is the Turkish Lira. Despite this, in some tourist locations, the Euro is well accepted. Turkey may partly belong to European territory, but it is outside the eurozone.
When to visit Turkey
When it comes to travel dates, it is always a good idea to find out about the destination's climate. The best months to travel in Turkey are between April and October. Taking this into account, the summit of summer there can be very hot, take light clothes. Despite the heat, never forget to bring a scarf or pashmina to cover your head and shoulders during visits to the beautiful mosques.
What will it be like to visit Post Pandemic Turkey?
Turkey was one of the first destinations to receive the Safe Travels seal from the WTTC (World Travel and Tourism Council). This seal is a seal given to countries and tourist destinations adapted to the established security and biosafety protocols. Besides, these destinations' establishments and tourist points are checked, oriented, and reviewed with some frequency.
Traveling in a group is addictive! I say this not only from my own experiences but also from the experiences of many customers and personal friends. So, check out some of the advantages of taking this group trip below.
Make new friends
Choosing a travel itinerary says a lot about you! Therefore, the tendency is that in the same travel group there are people with interests very similar to yours. It guarantees a lot of laughter, meeting potential friends, and collecting memories that will last a lifetime.
Everything you experience on a trip is more intense, have you noticed? That way, the friends we make during the tour are more than exceptional! It's guaranteed fun.
Traveling in a group is a guarantee of a safer trip. This is because visiting countries with cultures very different from yours can cause some estrangement in some situations. Being with more people and a responsible guide makes everything go more smoothly. I say this not only from my own experience but also from the accounts of many personal clients and friends.
Most of my group clients are women who travel alone! They choose to join the groups to have company and not worry about safety during their tour.
More profitable tours
People with the same desire as you to discover certain attractions, cities, and monuments. Have you thought about how much this can make the trip even more exciting? Share your impressions with those who care and are just as interested as you are. As well as you can book a local taxi for your tours.
Time and money savings
Private transfer, a guide is speaking Portuguese and the following everything closely, exclusive visits and service priorities. This can all be very expensive when hired individually. But when you are in a group, all these services and perks become an accessible possibility. For example, in my travel group for May, in addition to a local guide speaking Portuguese, support and assistance will be integral. I will accompany the group and guarantee the best services very closely.
Eliminate communication difficulties
In addition to the guide who speaks the local language, all communication is more manageable with your group mates! Besides, there is always someone who knows how to negotiate well, a good connoisseur of gastronomy to choose the best dishes in restaurants, someone to make everyone laugh definitely, communication is no longer a problem.
