About
We are a boutique tour operator, Turkish/UK owned. We have been in business for 25 years designing fine trekking, biking, cultural and rail-based tours in all parts of the country. From our base in Kas, we can provide bike hire and riding notes. Please get in contact with us if you would like private guided or self-guided trekking on the Lycian way, St. Paul Trail or Carian Way. Guided and self-guided bike tours are a pleasure in Turkey with quiet, scenic roads passing frequent remains of near-forgotten civilisations. We love train travel and arrange sleeper train tours across this huge country, linking the cultural highlights of Turkey together in a relaxing and rewarding travel experience.

While traveling in Turkey, my wife and I tried to make transit reservations for travel from Izmir to Istanbul, via Cappadocia. The Turkish train website was hard to navigate and did not show availability for the times and seats we wanted. We called Amber, and immediately got help, including the exact schedule we were looking for. Some of the travel legs were complicated, because they included changes from train to private car to bus. All of it was worked out by Amber, and the transit went without a hitch. They made our in-Turkey travel a relaxed and reliable journey.

Well it was my first self-guided hiking trip. I hiked 150km Lycian Way. I used Amber Travel for support. They are amazing, honest, reliable, punctual all the time from the moment I got the airport in Turkey

My support was Mrs. Yesim. Which did her best answered me back the moment I contacted her.
I also liked the programme that been done and implemented perfectly can’t complain about anything or any person. Highly recommend

I went with a group of 13 hikers on the West section of the Lycian Way. There are many companies offering Lycian Way tours but I chose Amber Travel because they are truly local. From the beginning they were responsive, flexible and able to give well-informed and helpful advice. Paul handled the initial route selection and hotel booking. This wasn't easy, having to find small hotels able to accommodate 13 hikers. He did a fantastic job. Then Yesim was our main contact at the start and throughout the tour. It is inevitable with a group of our size that last minute variations have to be made because someone is not up to hiking one day or needs to find an early exit. Yesim always responded immediately and always solved our problems. All of the transfers and pick-ups were on-time the drivers were friendly and helpful. The choice of accommodation was superb - we stayed in some charming and unique locations. The whole experience was everything we hoped for from beginning to end. I highly recommend Amber Travel to anyone doing to Lycian Way.

Highly recommended travel company. I used Amber's services to book train tix in Turkey (Istanbul to Ankara; Dogu Express). The communication was excellent; questions were answered promptly and the service was first rate. Tix on the Dogu Express can be scarce but Amber Travel came through. I'm sure for their range of tours the experience would be no less than five stars. Thanks!

On our journey from Switzerland to Georgia, Amber Travel helped us greatly in purchasing all our train and bus tickets as well as reserving suitable hotel rooms throughout Turkey. Yesim made the impossible possible by getting us two beds on the unique Döguexpress from Ankara to Erzurum, a very lasting experience to us! The system of indicating our needs (e.g. we would like to travel from Trabzon to Istanbul departing the evening of a certain day), Amber travel then providing the options to chose from, as well as purchasing the tickets as soon as a payment was made by us through a very simple web-application, worked perfectly well. We also highly appreciated Yesims advice on hotel locations (all with a very good cost-benefit ratio), health and safety recommendations and simply his extremely friendly, patient and helpful attitude towards us with a rather unusal travel idea. We thank Yesim and Amber Travel whole heartedly and can entirely recommend them to any traveller to Turkey who wants to use public transport and thus wishes to travel in a sustainable and close to the local population way through this impressive country.

I wrote to Amber, outlining a very short 3 trip we wanted to do outside of Istanbul. Yesim sent the itinerary the following day, with payment details to consider. She explained why one of our train selections wasn't available at this time. She also offered an alternative. Amber Travel knows about trains!!!

I intended to confirm the following day, however, due to flight changes all of a sudden, we were forced to cancel our trip even before it began. I notified Yesim & apologised for the trouble that I had put her through. She was so understanding. We are intending to return next year to travel more extensively in Turkiye and we would only consider using Amber Travel. Yesim and her company have certainly gained our trust and admiration.

I used the services of Amber Travel to book rail tickets on the Dogu Express from Ankara to eastern Turkey. Tickets for this train sell fast and Amber Travel booked the tickets on my behalf. They were very efficient and helpful and I can totally recommend them.

Amber Travel is brilliant, especially if you are doing anything involving railways or Unesco sites. Yesim is a star. The after-sales service is impeccable. So if you are travelling independently in Turkey, this is the firm to use.
