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.
