A good way to see of the major sites, and covering a lot of ground. Both our tour diector Ismail and our driver, were both very good.Managing the disparate needs of a large group. From transfer at the airport, to return transfer ,all for our individual flight times. The hotels were good, apart from Capadoccia, which was disappointing and isolated, and Kudasaki, where there is a wealth of better options.
We did seem to spend an inordinate amount of time, at workshops,high priced retail outlets, time which could have beeen better employed at the places we wanted to see, and given the amount of sales generated, at these outlets, to internet savvy tourists, perhaps everybody's valuable time, could have better employed.
I gained a lot of insight from Ismail, history,geography,culture, all delivered with a sense of humour,
a true professional.
The optional tours, eg Balloon, Ephesus appeared overpriced, given local rates for the same experience, about twice the price.
Nevertheless, in general brilliant driver, excellent tour director, plenty of pit stiops on long drives.
As a keen photographer, i was disappointed at our stop in Pergamon, whch completely ignored the main site at the top, one of the reasons for going on this tour. Also the decision not to vist Gallipolli,
which was steamrollered through, without a debate, at the behest of more well heeled clients.
Both these places were major reasons for electing this tour, which were outlined in my itinerary, plus free entry to Ephesus, although i had to pay another 75 dollars, to actually see it.
I appreciate the time constraints, and travelling long distance, but , these are major selling points, and the reason for picking this tour.
