Since 1997 Fez Travel has been delighted to bring Turkey & Greece to life and are now proud to extend our range of destinations to the Balkans, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Israel, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran and Uzbekistan! We are celebrating our 20th year of operation and pleased to release our 2017 brochure. (Links to pdf versions of our brochure may be found at the bottom of any web page at www.feztravel.com) This brochure is filled with an exciting collection of tours for 2017 including guaranteed departure escorted group tours to each of these new exotic destinations. We are also a leading tour operators for ANZAC Day.
The spirit and passion for travel that drove our early success lives on today and is reflected in everything we do. For us, travel is more than just a holiday – we believe that it deepens our tolerance and understanding of historical, cultural and social issues. This is reflected in our itineraries which strive to provide more authentic experiences to our guests, and in the approach of our tour guides when they are on the road.
With Fez Travel you will see all of the “must-see” sights, and our expert local guides will show you plenty of hidden treasures as well. Holidays are precious, and so we have designed each of our tours carefully to give you unforgettable memories and great value. Our travellers come from all walks of life and so our itineraries have also been planned to provide the perfect mix of sightseeing and free time.
We aim to show you the heart of both of these countries, and for you to walk away feeling as though you have had an experience, rather than simply ticked off a list of places to see.
Whether you are a history buff, prefer to get off the beaten track, or simply want to relax and enjoy the sun and sea, whether you prefer a small group tour or a more independent style of travel, Fez Travel has something to offer everyone.
Inbound tour operator
We have more than 800 scheduled departures of our escorted small group tours each year, covering Greece, Turkey, the Balkans, Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Morocco, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran and Uzbekistan. If group tours are not your thing, we have a team that will work with you to design tailor made itineraries and private tours that cater for a variety of special interest requests including cultural, study, religious and adventure tours staying in anything from budget to 5-star accommodation.
If you are an international tour operator, looking for a partner in destinations we operate, look no further! All your ground requirements – from transport, to accommodation, to local guides are safe in our hands. We have a local operation team in each destination – we speak the language, we know the customs, the culture and the laws, and our experience and network of local offices guarantees your clients will get the most out of their time. We currently provide ground services for several large companies around the world, managing all aspects of on the ground operations for their own brochured product.
As a travel agent, we provide a wide range of services including tailor-made independent travel itineraries, international and domestic flight ticketing and outbound tour sales.
The year was 1997, and Turkey was a hot destination for backpackers from all over the world. And so Fez Travel and our fledging Hop-on Hop-off bus service around Western Turkey were born in response to an identified gap in the market. Although in the beginning just a few buses departed each week from a tiny office in Sultanahmet, our first year was a staggering success and our range of services quickly grew.
By the early 2000’s Fez was a leader in the budget tour market, and seeing an opportunity to diversify, Fez moved into the scheduled tour market covering the West of Turkey. In 2003, we expanded across borders, adding tours that included Greece to our suite of programs, an indication of Fez’s strong and ever expanding brand. In 2016 we have extended our product range and covering more adventure destinations where we offer a unique experience to our guests. Australia has traditionally been our biggest market and we opened our first international sales office in Sydney to assist all our travel agents and travellers.
Over the last 20 years, as our reputation for providing good value, quality tours spread, and demand increased, we have made the shift from being a provider of budget tours to a leader in the provision of comfort tours, city day tours and shore excursions.
From our tour guides to our bus drivers and operation staff, we believe a good team is fundamental to an efficient and successful operation. We employ a mix of seasoned travellers and local professionals to give us the broadest possible knowledge and skill base, and we invest in continuously developing our people. The success of Fez is a direct result of the loyalty and dedication that our personnel have demonstrated over the years.
Why Choose Fez ?
Quality and Value for Money
Fez Travel tours offer great value for money – we’ve worked hard to get all of the ingredients that make up a great tour just right, and we have honed all of the activities on tour to get the perfect mix of sightseeing and free time. All year round we check the quality of our suppliers, and we know every town we stop in like the back of our hand. This means we know the best places to stay, the best places to eat, and the best places to go in your free time.
Established local operator
When you book with Fez, you have the peace of mind of knowing that we operate our own group tours. We speak the language, we know the local customs, we hire our own guides and operate using our own vehicles and so we control the quality of our tours. We’ve been around for 20 years and so we know the ropes and all of those small things that help to make a tour great.
No local payments, no surprises
At Fez we believe there should be no surprises for you on tour, and that holiday budgeting should be simple. When you book a Fez Travel tour you have clear information about what is included. Your only decision is which optional activities you might want to do, and we give you clear information about the cost of these in your pre-departure pack so that you can budget for these before you leave home.
No large groups
We believe that you can’t really get to know a country if you are travelling in a really large group, and so our escorted group tours have a maximum size of 20 people (with the exception of ANZAC Day tours).
