5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

An excellent guide (thank you Ali:) and two beautiful locations have made this a perfect day, complimentary and tasty lunch included. Turned out to be a private tour since there were no other participants. A must do☆☆☆☆☆

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

I was fortunate to be able to be the only person on this trip and Ali was a great guide. As I was the only person I felt a little bad that he was taking me all the way there, but he gave me some free time and was knowledgeable of Pergamum and Asklepion. Pergamum was a great site, not as crowded as Ephesus and had a more rugged beauty to it. The theater was marvelous and the location superb. Asklepion was quite a different scene, it was quite spiritual and I thoroughly enjoyed wandering around
