    The Tour and Tour guide was perfect but they should give some beverages or something with this kind of money... After talking to our friend we found that this tour agent is really expensive and super VIP .

    The Agency was able to set up the tour for me in less than 24 hours. The guide was a Scholar! I learned so much on this tour. Oh and the city of Ankara exceeded my expectation. The old town inside the castle walls was probably the highlight of the tour. The guide also gave me helpful hints to continue sightseeing on my own.

    This is a must for people who are interested in ancient history. It's like a few hours of refresher course on ancient and world history. Very friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable tour guide. Many thanks, Mustafa!

    My tour guide, Mustafa, gave me a terrific private tour of Ankara. His insights into the city, its history, culture and personality, were wonderful. I also appreciated his willingness to dash through the rain with me so that I was able to experience all that Ankara had to offer. My private car was clean and always ready when we were moving on to our next location. Mustafa's English was wonderful. I felt comfortable asking questions, taking the time to look at the things I wanted to see, and asking for recommendations. As a single woman with a limited amount of time in which to tour, this was the best option I could find. I would definitely recommend this great service and would use Viator again based on this experience!

    We hit the major highlights of Ankara with our guide and because it was a private tour we were able to customize some and asked to be taken to a small neighborhood spice and fruit market. We also walked the neighborhood streets and visited local shops. Fun tour!

    A must visit is the Anatolian museum. Attaturk's memorial is great.

    Anatolian Museum and Ataturk memorial both well worth a visit.
