    Turkey has long been the bridge between the East and the West. Five thousand years of civilization has left its mark across the country, making it one of the most fascinating places to explore, especially with kids. Historical cities, ruins and the most incredible beaches, coupled with some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet and one of the great cuisines of the world make Turkey an unforgettable destination.

    Highlights include:

    Istanbul is Turkey in a nutshell. With its ancient covered bazaars, palaces and mighty mosques, Istanbul is one of the most exotic cities in the world.

    Cappadocia: A region of underground cities, fairy chimneys and hotels built into caves - Cappadocia is a unique and enchanting landscape that makes for incredible exploring.
    The Coast: In addition to world famous beaches, the Turkish coastline is dotted with the fascinating remains of ancient Greek and Roman settlements.

    "Our trip to Turkey was absolutely amazing! We had a fantastic time & just wish we could have stayed a bit longer.
    We were very impressed with all of the history and the culture on a whole. Neither of us knew that much going in so we filled up on as much information from our guides as possible. And speaking of which, the guides were simply wonderful. They really helped us to get a better understanding of the culture & appreciate the country as a place we would definitely like to visit again.
    Thank you again Quivertree for creating such a wonderful holiday package for us!"

  • Morocco

    Morocco offers everything you would imagine Arabia to be. The kasbahs, the oases, the snake charmers, the whitewashed cities, the incredible food.
    Its ancient cities are labyrinths waiting to be explored, the markets are bustling and of course, the cuisine is absolutely delicious. Morocco is not only a cultural experience - from trekking in the mountains to lazing at the beach, it offers a family a full range of holiday experiences.

    Highlights include:

    Fez and Marrakech: Two ancient cities with incredible bazaars ripe for exploration. Snake charmers, musicians and acrobats entertain the people nightly at the famous Djemaa el Fna in Marrakech, while Fez is the last remaining medieval city in the world.

    The Atlas Mountains: Trek from village to village meeting friendly Berber tribespeople as you go along.

    Essaioura: Originally a Portuguese colony, this is the quintessential Moroccan fishing town, offering a peaceful break from the hectic cities.

    The Oases and the Desert: In the deep South, visit the remains of fort-like Kasbahs, nestled in oases of thousands of palm trees, and explore the mighty Sahara on camelback.

    Comments:
    "Traveling with a teenaged and pre-teen son brings a challenge: keeping everyone interested, engaged and happy. When we decided to ask Quivertree to meet this challenge and show us Morocco in 13 nights, we knew this was a tall order. Having just returned from our vacation, we can happily report that Quivertree exceeded our expectations, and put together a trip that we all thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish. There were no disappointments, no glitches, only highlight after highlight. Kudos to Quivertree for customizing a trip to suit our tastes and for making it so memorable. We will cherish our memories of our Morocco trip always" (Marty and Paulette, Vancouver, Canada, 2011)
