The ONLY highlight of this tour was our guide at Troy who was a passionate, amateur historian. Otherwise, it turned out to be a 20 hour long bus trip with only 1.5 hours at Troy. Sadly, the outsourced transportation company chose to take the tour group to gadawful restaurants where the food was tired and tasteless and the service was perfunctory. The long bus ride could have been an opportunity to share more about the rich history of Turkey, but the guide spoke for about 5 or 6 minutes when we passed near the Bosporus. Seriously! There are SO many other things to do and enjoy in this gorgeous city. DON'T GO!!
Sharp, well-informed, spunky guide took me to a variety of food and historical places. Lots of walking involved along uneven pavement... so if you're not comfortable walking briskly on cobblestones you should give this a pass. Otherwise, I highly recommend this fun and informative tour.
