Turkey

Turkey or officially the Republic of Turkey, is a country whose territory is almost entirely located in Asia (97%) and the remaining 3% - on the Balkan Peninsula in Southeastern Europe, but more than 20% of its population on the Balkan Peninsula. It borders east with Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Iran; to the south - with Iraq and Syria; to the west - with the Aegean Sea and the islands in it, Greece and Bulgaria. Turkey's location between Europe and Asia makes it a country of particular geostrategic importance.

Fantastic trip with Penguin Travel! Loved all the sights we got to see in Saudi Arabia. Abdulaziz and Lyuben were very helpful, kind, and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend for solo and group travelers, especially those wanting an "off the beaten path" experience. Can't wait to travel with Penguin again!
