Know More about this tour

Perfect for first-time visitors, this Izmir sightseeing shore excursion starts with the wonders of the ancient Agora, one of the best-preserved agoras in the world. It was once a bustling Roman bazaar, and today you can still see colonnades of Corinthian columns, vaulted chambers and a reconstructed arch.

Then head to the Archaeology Museum, where youll see Greek and Roman artifacts and the head of a gigantic statue of Domitian that once stood at Ephesus. Continue to the clock tower located at the Konak square, a symbol of Izmir. Decorated in Ottoman architecture, the tower features four fountains around the base in a circular pattern.

Finally, wander around the Alsancak district and Pasaport Quai, a historic and beautiful area on the waterfront.

    Knowledgeable guide, could have done without the "rug demo" since you are essentially stuck at there until the sales staff finally recognizes you aren't buying. Turns out our itinerary had shifted and we came in to a different port (Kusadasi). Viator, in typical fashion, just rearranged us to attend the Kusadasi half-day tour instead. I ALWAYS look up Viator options before booking a cruise ship excursion or anyone else.

    Izmir was a city full of charm! We visited Agora, Kadifekale, and two museums. View from the Kadifekale was unforgettable. Without this guided tour, we could not see the city in such a compact time slot because the local trails might be a bit complicated to aliens! The guide named Ihsan was really professional! We enjoyed every moment with uncle Ihsan. I was a bit worried about the return time to the cruise ship, however, we could get to the ship in reasonable time.

    We enjoyed our half-day Izmir tour. Our party of 4 was also joined by another couple on their honeymoon in Izmir. We were able to see much of the city and experienced a little bit of the culture and also had time to visit the local market and have Turkish coffee. Our tour guide was very informative and very pleasant.

    we were met at the ship on time and that was good. I thought that from the information before booking we would visit the Izmir Museum, which did not happen, perhaps i was mistaken, as we did visit an historical sight. the guide was very kind to my 5yr old grandson which was very special. the highlight was a delicous lunch we enjoyed at one of the cafes at the market.

    Great. Fantastic. Our guide was so nice and so knowledgable. The driver was very good, and also very personable. I enjoyed the tour and guide so much I didn't want it to end. Also, it was obvious how much she loved her country, and that was wonderful.
