Esra was a knowledgeable and really good guide. I appreciated her English skills.
Brilliant, fantastic and all other positive adjectives you can think of. It was a very log trip and the other people I think did it a better way, by spreading two tours over two days based in Canakkale or Eceabat. They also tagged on the Gallipoli tour as well. Because of the small number there was only four of us on the tour, one got off in Eceabat to do the Gallipoli tour that afternoon and myself and an older couple did the Troy tour. Our guide Faruk, think that is how you say/spell his name, was fantastic there go those adjective's again as was our driver.
He was so informative and a great talker - not sure if he got the Kiwi humour though. We had a great day. After the tour the coupe were dropped off at their Hotel in Canakkale and it just left me for the ride back to Istanbul. The tour does not normally involve a stop to see the Brad Pitt Trogon Horse, the one picture in this picture in Canakkale, very misleading but we got there early Ferry and Faruk walked back with me to get pictures. Great day, great driver and guide, with good company.
Was a very long drive back on my own though.
Would recommend this tour to everyone.
Being in Troy was special, the guide was friendly and knowledgeable.

As the other reviews said, it is a long day but really worth it. The van driver and tour guide were both excellent. We learned so much history not just about Troy but about the site going back to BC times. We didn't realize until we had the tour that length of the history 8 layers of different times being built and more being found. The site is well laid out and easy to get around with amenities such as very clean restrooms and a gift shop. We would highly recommend devoting a day to going as you get to see so much of the Turkey outside Istabnbul and how people live.
What a fabulous visit to Troy! The bus picked us up from our hotel on time, was very comfortable and the guide made time pass quickly. The lunch was delicious. Troy was spectacular though it really helped to have researched the site before visiting to make sense of the different levels. I've read about Hector, Achilles, Menelaus, Priam, Agamemnon and all the others from the Iliad and Odyssey all my life how amazing to see Troy and bring them to life! Only criticism is I wish our guide at Troy would have linked areas of the site to specific parts of the myth. I would definitely take other tours with Viator.
Incredible tour, a little long if you only go for the day but well worth it. Would say to go early 2016 as they are currently building a huge meseum and are beginning to excavate again next year.
Such lovely tour guides too!
Of great historical significance, expertly guided and explained!
The tour took 14 hours with about 1.5 or 2 hours at Troy. It was well worth it. The minibus was spacious and comfortable. The tour guide to troy picked us up before we boarded the ferry and brought us back to the minibus after the visit in Troy. The tour guide to Troy knew a lot about the dfferent archeological opinions concerning Troy, which was interesting and informative.
