Renae R

3 star rating: Worth doing
June 2012

I must admit that I was a little disappointed (and a bit concerned) when a black Renault with 2 men in it (without any obvious form of ID) showed up to take me on the "tour" I had booked on to. The voucher I received said that I would be in an air conditioned coach, so I guess I just assumed that I would be touring the sites with a group. The tour guide went to sleep for most of the trip to the site, so I was left wondering if I was actually being transported to an unpleasant situation rather than the tour I had been promised! He turned our to be a good tour guide with a great knowledge of the sites, so my day turned our great - although at times I did feel like I was being rushed along a little bit. I guess, as a single female traveler, it would have been much more comforting if I were notified that I was the only person on the tour, and that it was not a coach, but a car that would be picking me up. The guides should also be required to show their Professional Tour Guide ID, without being asked to.

Tour does not normally include Museum - if you want to go, bring a copy of the Viator itinerary! Guide did not emphasize medical context after I specifically requested this at the beginning of the tour. Nobody else was scheduled on this day, so it was a private tour.

I was the only one on this tour. The guide was knowledgeable but was always in a rush to get back to the car and do his paperwork. I had a lot of free time. Also, we went to Acropolis and Asklepion but did not go to the Bergama museum, and no explanation was given.

We were two of us in a nice and clean car. Didn't book a private car, though. A speedy driver, Guide could have been more efficient. It was OK. Organization n time, clean car, lunch very poor with crowds of tourists in Pergamon.

We were pleased to have seen the sights but thought that our guide could have gone into much more detail. We also expected to go to the Pergamum museum, but this was not included in the tour. In fact, whereas the tour should have been a full day, the two main sites were almost rushed through. Then we were given lunch, after which four of us--there were eight people in total on the tour--were put in a taxi with no air-conditioning, three people squashed in the backseat, and driven back to Izmir. It was a very hot day. It appeared that the tour leader still had to get the other people in the group to Troy.
