Upcoming BRS Events

 

  • SOUTH EAST TURKEY TRIP

        10th - 17th OCTOBER 

 

It is some time since we were asked by members to organise a trip to some of the most historical and ancient sites in Turkey and that is what we have just been able to do.

 

The attached flyer available on the following link gives details of the 8-day trip starting on 10th October and it is the most ambitious trip we have organised taking in some of the world’s most revered sites.

 

Whilst some of the detail is still being worked on, the tour will be accompanied by two English speaking tour guides and a BRS representative to ensure everything goes smoothly.

 

The cost of the trip represents excellent value for money and we are hopeful it will prove popular to those members interested in culture and history.

 

We need a minimum of 10 members & guests to make the trip viable and because of the need to book flights as soon as possible the offer is only available until 1st October.

 

          i. Booking.       When booking please give the full name detailed on the passport and you will need to pay in full at the time. Once the trip has been booked and the monies paid to the tour guides it will not be possible to make refunds.

 

            ii. Travel.           Although our tour guides confirm that over 2 million tourists visit this area every year and they have not been subject to any danger arising from the Syrian war in the past, the UK FCO has issued travel advice for this region and you should read it before making a booking - https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/turkey

 

In addition:

 

· Travellers are responsible for arranging their own online visitor’s visa for Turkey

· Passports must be valid for at least 6 months before travelling to Turkey

· All travellers are advised to take out personal travel insurance
