Being on the crossroads of the civilizations, we are really lucky as there are lots of things to offer to ourtravellers. There are Biblical sites as well as historical sites and no need to tell the beauty of the nature.

Bitinya Tours have the expertise of the region. The partners of Bitinya Tours are high school friends who after university and other work experiences found we all had some direct connection with travel in Turkey and abroad. One of us led camping tours for mostly European students in Turkey, one led adventure tours all over the world, and another specialized in art tours for retired North Americans, while one of us organized meetings for foreign businessmen and women. So with our variety of experiences, we put our energies together to form our own company in 1998!

Generally, the people in this part of the world will show great natural kindness to foreigners and we are proud of that, but there is still the need for knowledge, where to see contemporary art or an insight into politics and religion here! We have all traveled extensively for both work and pleasure and know what it means to be a traveler. We see foreign visitors as travelers, not just passengers, also because we deal with small groups, rarely more than ten people. Our services are personalized as we communicate directly with our clients and by the time they arrive, we already "know" each other.

Bitinya Tours offers different itineraries to the region. You may want to design your own itinerary as well. You just need to tell us where you want to go and we can combine the places with the comfortable accommodation and best available transport.
