Izmir was a city full of charm! We visited Agora, Kadifekale, and two museums. View from the Kadifekale was unforgettable. Without this guided tour, we could not see the city in such a compact time slot because the local trails might be a bit complicated to aliens! The guide named Ihsan was really professional! We enjoyed every moment with uncle Ihsan. I was a bit worried about the return time to the cruise ship, however, we could get to the ship in reasonable time.

Great. Fantastic. Our guide was so nice and so knowledgable. The driver was very good, and also very personable. I enjoyed the tour and guide so much I didn't want it to end. Also, it was obvious how much she loved her country, and that was wonderful.

Superb guide, fascinating site. I especially enjoyed the opportunity to enter a small mosque and discuss its traditions. The guide's historical knowledge and sensitivity made for a very special tour.

Our tour guide knew all about Izmir and took us to places and explained things that large tours could not do. A wonderful tour with a fantastic tour guide.

This was a really great half day tour with Mehmet who looked after us extremely well. He is a very personable character with a friendly but professional style - loads of knowledge, history and cultural background. By lunchtime we felt that we had a good flavour of Izmir as a City and how it fits into its historic background. Mehmet made the the whole visit both interesting and lighthearted - we were lucky to be the only visitors on this particular tour so we had undivided attention ! Great stuff.

Knowledgeable guide, could have done without the "rug demo" since you are essentially stuck at there until the sales staff finally recognizes you aren't buying. Turns out our itinerary had shifted and we came in to a different port (Kusadasi). Viator, in typical fashion, just rearranged us to attend the Kusadasi half-day tour instead. I ALWAYS look up Viator options before booking a cruise ship excursion or anyone else.

We enjoyed our half-day Izmir tour. Our party of 4 was also joined by another couple on their honeymoon in Izmir. We were able to see much of the city and experienced a little bit of the culture and also had time to visit the local market and have Turkish coffee. Our tour guide was very informative and very pleasant.

Mahmet was an excellent guide. Great historic background talk on Izmirs' past. A very cold day in Turkey, but he and the driver kept us comfortable and entertained throughout the tour. Be prepared for typical bantering by the leather salesmen during your walk through the city market.
