This tour if great BUT a long day if you are staying in Izmir. First of all, there is nothing to do in Izmir and the tour company is 1 1/2 hr from Izmir, so stay in Kusadasi. it is a 3 hour drive from the tour company but it is worth it to see mother nature in action!
Excellent tour! you see all the "must see's" in Istanbul. no complaints
The ferris wheel is very, very hurried because there is then a 20 minute drive to the tavern. While a great night, it gets better once you can relax after you are rushed through the ferris wheel.
