1983, Pacha Tours was founded in Paris for the sole purpose of providing the best in accommodations, transportation and guiding in Turkey-a country that offers an endless wealth of history, culture and natural beauty. Within three years, our US operation started. In 1998 alone, more than 120,000 Europeans and Americans explored Turkey with Pacha Tours.
Our approach to travel is considerably different from other companies who spread themselves out over many different destinations. We are focused and single-mindedly dedicate all of our resources to Turkey. Specialization translates into:
In-depth Knowledge - The tradeoff between larger choices of countries is an in-depth knowledge of a destination. We know Turkey inside and out. With this knowledge comes greater traveling opportunities for you. From East to West, North to South, group travel to individual travel, land expeditions to sea expeditions or a little bit of both, we can plan the best trip for your taste and budget in Turkey. Pacha Tours do not follow beaten paths, we create new ones.
Quality Control - By focusing on Turkey and controlling our operations we not only can plan the best trip but we can be sure to deliver what we promise. Every phase our tours is under the guidance of the ultimate travel expert: Your English speaking, Turkish, Pacha guide. Additionally our field manager in Istanbul is a phone call away.
Choice - Weekly departures throughout the year, more than 15 escorted tours, at least 15 regional packages (each with many hotel choices), Fly & Drive programs, many different cruises and the ability to design your own trip. We simply offer the biggest choice for travel to Turkey.
Not considered a big travel organization by US standards, we are, however one of the top tour operators in Turkey. 120,000 passengers from all over the world explored Turkey with Pacha Tours in 1998 alone. This means purchasing power for us and significantly better rates for you.
