My Review

The tour was great and the guide knowledgeable and easy to understand. He also had a nice loud voice. I learned a lot and would recommend the tour.
However: I had a problem on return to my hotel. The driver of the bus had me get off the bus (late at night and I'm 75 years old) and walk to the hotel. I was willing to do that, but found I was in the wrong neighborhood. To make this short: someone helped me at another hotel with the same name, called a taxi, and the taxi, first took me to the second hotel with the same name. I finally made it back to the hotel very late...long day. I have asked that the taxi trip from one wrong hotel to the next be reimbursed. it took 27 lira's, but I want 25 returned to my credit card account. I gave him a 2 lira tip. I have explained this to the company and was told they are 'researching' it. So there you have my review: the good and the not so good. Where is the return of the taxi fair?????
