Inte lika positivt. Guiden pratade inte så mycket, verkade inte intresserad eller kunde inte så mycket om resmålen. Inte så bra engelska. Vid Alexander den stores slott/borg fick vi frågan om vi ville se mer eller om vi var nöjda. Då de fyra andra i gruppen var nöjda besöktes endast utsiktsplatsen. Inte heller Agora fick vi mycket information om utan det var mest att vandra själv och då ger det inte lika mycket när man inte får höra historien kring platsen.
This trip was disappointing. Although the tour itself could have been a pleasant little historic promenade through Izmir including two museums, the visit of the Kafidekale castle etc., it turned out to be a catastrophe - due to the guide. Güler didn't know I lived in Izmir and that only my parents were here for the first time, as real "tourists". Already within the first five minutes after pick-up, conversation tipped out from historical aspects (which is the actual mean of this trip) to her own political opinions explained in an offensive manner. She simply was unprofessional, this is the best way to describe. She's supposed to having studied history and archaeology but none of this was visible. My parents were constantly correcting her behind or reminding her antique names she had 'forgotten' while explaining history in the museum. In the end she even reminded us "to not forget to tip the driver", in a quite undiscrete and unpolite manner, although she didn't even take 30 seconds to introduce him to us nor to thank him (like guides mostly do), in fact she didn't even introduce herself ! Unprofessionalism pushed to its paroxism. It's sad for VIATOR because other trips I have done with this travel agency were great ! Thank you though for all interesting tours you manage to organize ! Next time will be better.
