New Company Offers Fully Commissionable Packaged and Customized Tours of Turkey, Greece and Egypt

New York, NY ( July 16, 2013) Utilizing more than 17 years of experience in providing U.S. and other international travelers to Turkey, Greece, and Egypt with the highest quality land arrangements, in-depth discoveries, and meticulous attention to detail, one of Turkey’s leading DMC’s is now offering a wide selection of escorted tours, cruise packages and FIT services directly to U.S. travelers via travel agents.

Founded in 1997 and achieving international success as Crossroads Travel, the company has been rebranded as Crossroads Tours International to reflect its emergence as a full-service, world class tour operator. As part of its introduction, the new company is offering travel agents 15% commission on all land arrangements through July 31, 2014. Crossroads Tours International’s website is

The founder and Managing Director, Erol Anay, spent years as a guide and tour escort in Turkey, and has incorporated his exceptional knowledge of the country’s rich historical and multi-cultural heritage and its natural treasures into Crossroads Tours’ escorted programs, “Blue Cruises,” and other packages, and in the designing of customized tours for individuals and groups.

“From the outset, our goal has been to provide travelers to Turkey, Greece and Egypt with a more in-depth experience than the typical ‘six cities in six days’ tours,” said Anay, in explaining his transition from a DMC to a full-service tour operator. “We accomplish this by employing only the most qualified tour escorts, maintaining a stringent training program for escorts, and developing itineraries that take our guests to parts of Turkey and attractions not included in many other tour programs. This includes offering them the option of staying at unique ’boutique’ hotels and resorts where they can ‘feel’ the history, tradition and local color of their surroundings, all from a comfortable setting.”

Anay added: “As a tour operator, we can now fully utilize our expertise, services, and strong buying power to offer Americans planning a trip to Turkey, Greece or Egypt the type of immersive travel experiences¬† and exceptional value¬† they are looking for.”

In addition to fixed departure tours of Turkey, Greece, and Egypt, Crossroads Tours International offers “Blue Cruises” (yachting holidays) on Turkey’s Aegean and southern coasts, special interest and special occasion tours, as well as customized and special interest tours for individuals, families, and larger groups.

“We look forward to introducing more Americans to the historic, cultural and scenic riches of Turkey and our other featured destinations,” said Anay.
