This is an amazing tour. Breakfast and lunch included. Our tour guide was very informative about the site and will be joining the next site excavation. Please view this site with a tour guide because you will need to understand the historical artifacts that you are witnessing.
Burak was passionate and knowledgeable about Troy. As the area is 5 hours drive from Istanbul, despite the wonderful Turkish countryside view, it is perhaps better if you combine the visit with a tour to Gallipoli.
It was well worth the long bus trip from Istanbul to Gallipoli and another 40 minutes ferry ride to Troy. Turkey is beautiful, blue sky and great food. Everyone should try it!
A long day but well worth it. The tour guide was very informative and the site itself was very interesting.
This tour was fantastic! The tour guide was very knowledgeable. He made the tour seem to "come alive". He put the facts into a context that made it all understandable and fascinating. At first, I thought that the bus ride to and from Troy would seem too long, but it did not. We had breaks for coffee/snacks, for lunch and for dinner. Plus the ride with the view of the sea to the side was lovely. This is a great tour and I have already encouraged my friends to include it when they visit Turkey.
Long drive for just two hours at the site, but the drive from Istanbul is beautiful, and the trip was definitely worth it! Tour guide was wonderful - very interesting and very knowledgeable!
Tour guide extremely informative. It was well worth the very long trip to see Troy. Definitely recommend it!
We were the only 2 on the Troy tour for the day, so we were combined with the Gallipoli tourers, for the
ride from Istanbul to Eceabat. The handoff to the ferry and the guide waiting in Canakkale was flawless, and
the whole experience was very good. It's a long day from Istanbul but Troy is worth it. I would certainly recommend Viator to friends.
Our guide in Troy- Barista- was great! It's a long day for a short visit just so you know. But it's great to cross with the ferry to say you did it!!
I really enjoyed most of it. I thought the tour guide was very good with information and did well in keeping my interest. However, there was a problem once we got off the ferry in the first leg of our trip. The guide for Troy wasn't there to meet us at the ferry port and we looked around for about 15 minutes in the area, thinking that we'd missed him. If I'd been alone, I'd have panicked. In future, detailed instructions will be needed to given to know what to do and where to meet the guide, including a specific spot at the ferry terminal to meet.
Very good trip. Long drive but was not bad at all. At the end of the day it all worth it after you get to spend time in the City of Troy. The guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The lunch was great. We had a great time. Would recommend it. Prepare to spend about 14 hours for this trip.
