Over 30 Years Experience
Why Choose Alkans/Eastern Turkey Tours
Over 30 years of satisfying customers

Our experience and social network means you, our guests, will enjoy an unforgettable time and hopefully will become a part of our extended and growing world wide family.

Fully accredited travel agency

We operate a class "A" licence under the auspices of TURSAB (Turkiye Seyhat Acentalari Birligi - The Association of Turkish Travel Agents).

Not just a tour agency

We work to provide more than just a holiday; we want you to deepen your understanding of our part of Turkey. Not only are we based in Eastern Turkey but we are native to this area; we know the customs, cultures and laws of the land and will share our knowledge with you.

No stone unturned

We personally seek out and inspect hotels and facilities we use to ensure that the services, rooms, cleanliness and price are of the highest quality.

Turkish origin

We have lived, worked and brought up our families in this spectacular region and have many years of experience sharing our hospitality and knowledge with travellers from all over the world.

Why book your tour with a big agency based abroad?

Big agencies organise their tours with local operators anyway. Come directly to us, get a better tour and save money. Invest in the places you visit.
