The 'Fez Bus’ Turkish Delight pass gives you the whole Western Turkey experience and more! It includes the entire Fez Bus circuit from Istanbul to Istanbul, but you can start anywhere on the circuit, do the full loop and finish back where you started. This pass covers the full circuit (start anywhere) - valid all season.

Though you can start anywhere on the route, stay as long as you want, and do what you wish, Fez Travel has put together a sample tour focusing on what each leg includes. Below is a sample of a tour that begins in Istanbul.

Leg: 1 | Location: Istanbul - Gallipoli

An early start today as you head west along the northern coast of the Sea of Marmara. This afternoon, you can honour the ANZAC’s on an optional tour of the Gallipoli battlefields, the site of the ill-fated World War 1 campaign or spend the afternoon exploring Canakkale. Fez Bus stays overnight in Canakkale.

Leg: 2 | Location: Gallipoli - Kusadasi via Troy & Pergamum

This morning, you head south along the Aegean coast, stopping at the ancient cities of Troy and Pergamum for guided tours. If there is time, the tour may stop to check out some local handicrafts on the way. Tonight, you can choose to stay in either Selcuk or Kusadasi. This overnight stop is the best place on the circuit to do a day trip to the white calcium terraces of Pamukkale. Fez Bus stays overnight in Kusadasi.

Leg: 3 | Location: Kusadasi - Koycegiz

Today the bus drives towards the picturesque lakeside town of Koycegiz, known for the nearby turtle beach and mud baths. On the way you will have the chance to check out some local handicrafts before a short stop at Milas, which is the drop off point for those heading to Bodrum, and a swim stop at a hidden waterfall. Fez Bus stays overnight in Koycegiz.

Leg: 4 | Location: Koycegiz - Fethiye via Saklikent Gorge

Experience one of Turkey’s highlights today as you trek up Saklikent Gorge, Turkey’s longest and deepest canyon. Saklikent is awesome, it’s literally a mountain split down the middle by an earthquake. On the way you will get to learn a little about famous Turkish carpets then enjoy lunch by the river. Tonight, you choose to stay in either the harbour town of Fethiye or the beachside resort of Oludeniz, famous for paragliding. Fez Bus stays overnight in Fethiye.

*If you are sailing on a Gulet ( ), then consider the Gulet departure dates when planning your trip and remember, you may need to spend extra days in Fethiye to coincide with your Gulet departure date or arrival date.

Leg: 5 | Location: Fethiye - Olympos via Kas

The bus drives along the Mediterranean coast today stopping for a swim in the turquoise waters of Kaputas Beach, on the way to Kas, traditionally a small Turkish fishing village. You'll have a chance walk the ancient marble street and check out the local silversmiths before driving east to your overnight stop at the ancient city of Olympos, also home to the world famous tree houses. This evening, you can visit the natural wonder of the eternal flames of Chimaera. Fez Bus stays overnight in Olympos.

Leg: 6 | Location: Olympos - Cappadocia via Konya

Today, you'll follow the ancient silk trade route across the Anatolian Plain towards the amazing lunar landscapes of the Cappadocia region, where you can sleep, eat and drink in man-made caves and visit underground cities. On the way you will visit the Sultanhani Caravanserai and Obruk just as the ancient traders did. It is recommended that you don’t miss the optional Turkish Folklore evening, which includes all the food and drinks you can handle! Fez Bus stays overnight in Cappadocia.

Leg: 7 | Location: Cappadocia - Istanbul via Ankara

Leaving the moonscape of Cappadocia behind we head north through the heart of the central Anatolian plain to nation’s capital Ankara. We will have a short stop at the Anitkabir, the Mausoleum of the famed Mustafa Kemal Ataturk before we continue on to the exotic city of Istanbul where we leave Asia and return to the European continent. Early evening we arrive at Fez office, which is situated in Sultanahmet at the heart of the old city

Since the founding of Fez Travel in 1997, we have aimed to provide our clients with as much value for money as possible. We understand the importance of travel to our clients and ensure they get the best possible service, which creates an unforgettable travelling experience.

Fez Travel is a tour operator, a ground handler, a travel agent, as well as the only agency in Turkey to operate a hop-on hop-off bus service. Our focus is on budget travel and we are the only youth and student travel specialist based in Turkey.

Originally known as hop-on hop-off specialists, today Fez Travel is a Turkish-based international tour operator. Our tours cover both Turkey and Greece and we are one of the leading tour operators for ANZAC Day. Fez deliver more than 500 guaranteed departure tours across 12 months of the year.
Our customers come from all walks of life, so our itineraries are deliberately flexible covering a wide variety of personal interests to maximise our client's satisfaction. Our tours offer a good mix of free time, adventure, sightseeing, culture, history and fun.

In addition to our scheduled tours, we operate Tailor Made tours that cater for a variety of special interest requests including cultural, study, religious and adventure tours, with hostel to 5-star services and accommodation.

We are based in Turkey - we speak the language, we know the customs, the culture and the laws. Therefore, all your ground handling requirements are safe in our hands, from transport to accommodation to local guides. Our experience and local network ensures your clients will get the most out of their time in Turkey.

As a travel agent we provide a wide range of services including Tailor Made tour itineraries, international and domestic flight ticketing and outbound tour sales. Firmly established, we are the Turkish representative of several large international groups such as STA Travel and Top Deck.

Still the only hop-on hop-off bus service in Turkey, the 'Fez bus', or 'fun bus' as it is affectionately known to our onboard staff, is fundamental to our philosophy of budget and flexible travel. The independent and the not-so-independent travellers alike can benefit from the Fez bus because the onboard staff can make the logistics of travelling so easywithout undermining people's freedom to choose their own travelling experience.

Whether it's the local tour guide, tour leader, sales assistant or bus driver, we believe a good crew is fundamental to an efficient and successful operation. We employ a good mix of seasoned travellers and local professionals to give us the broadest possible knowledge base. The success of Fez is an obvious result of the loyalty and dedicationthat our personnel have demonstrated over the years.

Fez Travel holds a group 'A' tour operator license with the Turkish Tourism Authority (TURSAB), so Fez and our clients have the security of endorsement from Turkey's governing tourism body. In line with TURSAB standards, our clients are fully insured. In addition, we are committed to upholding high industry standards and are a member of ASTA.

We have enjoyed long-term associations with many reputable companies and we are proud of the reciprocal benefits those associations generate. We are working hard to ensure a great future at Fez and if we can assist you in any future endeavours, do not hesitate to contact our friendly staff for assistance.
