Great tour and guide! Worth the price.
Our guide was absolutely great. He was very upbeat, lively, attentive and with a wonderful sense of humor. He provided a great deal of detail.
Each site was nice to visit and better to visit with a guide instead of doing it on your own. You see the same site, but you get a better appreciation when someone is sharing stories, history and facts about the site that you visit.
Of course the Mosques are the headliners, but the lunch in the restaurant with the views of the water and city was a great surprise.
Although the Grand Bazaar is included on this tour ~ you will need more time since it's so big. I recommend using this tour as an introduction to how HUGE the Bazaar is then go back and visit on another day when you have several more hours to devote to it if you are a shopper.
Excellent tour and guide. Amazing views!
When reading some of the other reviews prior to buying I was worried about being rushed through the site, but that was not the case. We has a guided tour through the site and then time to explore on our own before meeting at the museum. Our guide was very clear and provided many details about the site. She also shared many stories and facts during the ride up and back. There was never a dull moment.
My trip was on Oct 4th and the sun was beaming so it was very hot. I recommend bringing an umbrella or hat if you visit on the sunny day - and deodorant if you sweat a lot. It will help. :-) Oh - and the bees are friendly, but no one got stung.
Perfect tour! Make sure you do this one! My trip was on Oct 3rd and was FABULOUS! The weather was perfect and everything was well coordinated. Even if one little thing went wrong (which it didn't in my case) it would still receive an A+++ rating because there is so much beauty, so much relaxation, so much shopping, so much culture, so much fun that one would have to be a real sourpuss to have a real complaint about this trip. I definitely recommend this tour. Bring money, film and your bathing suit if you like to swim as you will be given an opportunity to do so on Hydra. Blue-est, prettiest water I have ever seen. Safe travels!
