Turkey Inland Tours
Travel Turkey to see the melting pot of ancient civilizations, Gobekli Tepe(Sanliurfa) dating from no less than 12.000 years back to the times of  Byzantine/ Ottoman empire years. Guided private land tour will be a great trip of all times. There are many places to see, if you have already seen the well known antique sites and the holiday resorts, which are mostly located in the western and southern provinces, and/or wish to have an itinerary, something no less exciting, then I can suggest some spectacular places from the highlights of Eastern Turkey such as snowy peaks of Mt Ararat or the blue waters of lake Van,or astounding Cappadocia,or profoundly peaceful Aphrodisias, the city of goddess Aphrodite. Even more exciting than all these, Mount Nemrut, southeastern province, where spirits of Commagene Kings are said to dwell ever since. 
Vast amount of information on recreations and the geography of Anatolia can be found under, Recreations, the respective links are given on the targeted page. General information is made available under  about turkey, The page offers information ranging from the history of the Turks and the land 'Anatolia' to Byzantine Empire.

Dress Code
There is no legally required dress code in Turkey for men and  women. On entering mosques women are required to cover their heads and from neck to the knees. Men can wear pants but should be long enough to cover to the knees. Rules are no stricter than what applies, say, at Duomo in Milan. For women face and neck can be seen. Turkey is not a strict Moslem country, but secular.
