Turkey is the only country where Jews have lived in peace for over 500 years without persecution, since the days of the Ottoman Empire. 1992 witnessed the celebration of the 500th anniversary of the arrival of Sephardic Jews in this land. We designed these tours for our Jewish friends, especially the Sephardic Jews, to share the experiences of their ancestors by visiting ancient synagogues, Jewish neighborhoods, museums, etc. Even if you stay only one day in Turkey, you can still have a memorable time by doing a full-day Sephardic Tour of Istanbul. This tour includes visits to Istanbul, Bursa, Canakkale, Izmir and Sardes, where you can visit the new and the old synagogues.
