Back from another amazing trip! (my 4th with C R McPhail). China is the most amazing place. Ron and his team really turned it on with the first Fonterra Farmers trip. The hotels were beautiful – we kept saying they couldn’t get better but they did!
A lovely mix of farming venues and sight seeing – the Great Wall, Terracotta Army and then the cruise down the Yangtze to see the 3 Gorges Dam.. mind blowing and should be on everyones bucket list. So many highlights, too many to mention but the food, the people and the culture plus many friends made on the trip.. a lifetime of memories.
New for 2020 is Turkey, a special place for many New Zealander’s and a fascinating and extraordinary country where East meets West and ancient meets modern.
An important stopover on the Silk Road, Turkey’s history has been touched by the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines and Ottomans and ancient ruins such as Ephesus and Troy are living reminders of the past. Agriculture is still the mainstay of the country and with a diverse landscape and fertile soils, Turkey is one of the world’s few self-sufficient countries.
With delicious Mediterranean cuisine, ancient monuments and the spectacular sights and sounds of Istanbul, this tour is a winner, but with the added bonus of the emotional Dawn Service at Anzac Cove in Gallipoli, this tour is a must!
