  • Amazing tour! The guide was so helpful and he really explained it all very well. He was funny, engaging. The tour was slightly late, but good nonetheless. I would recommend.

  • Good tour but misleading. Tour said it went to sirince as well but that part of the trip was deleted without reason. Very disappointing and not worth the money.

  • this tour was excellent , the hotel magnificent and kusadasi nice, well worth it

  • very nice , the tour was awesome, Punctual and the location of the hotel at Kusadasi was excellent very close to the Marina

  • Time tunnel to the ancient Anatolia.. Everyting in the prescriped itineries fits nicely as scheduled. Recommended for those hunger for histories.

  • first day is spent at the hotel provided using the pool and discovering kusadasi. second day you visit all the places mentioned, third day you are sent back to izmir. the third day doesnt really count, so its a 2 day tour because on the third day you are collected from the hotel at 10 am and sent back to izmir by 12pm.
