Rich historic sites: Troy, Ephesus and Hierapolis. The guide was very knowledgeable. Gallipoli is of interest to those with an interest in the Second War history. The views are beautiful.

The sights were great. Gallipoli was the best and very impressive to stand there at the historic battlefield I was honoured. Troy was awesome as well, wasn't as big as I thought it was. Kusadasi has a nice town to go and have lots of fun, it's like a resort town, right by the beach. Pergamum had the best view, love the natural white mountain and little waterfalls that you can walk down. Every site had an ancient theatre. no matter what. Our tour guide was great and the driver was also great. I highly recommend this tour to see some history.

What a wonderful tour. Our guide was so passionate and knowledgeable about the history of Turkey and it made the tour really meaningful. He had some wonderful stories and made all feel very comfortable. Our hotels were well appointed and clean and we also had time to explore on our own. Turkey is so beautiful and the people so accommodating and friendly. Highlights were Gallipoli and the Travertine Terraces.
