The team made sure we were picked up and dropped off on time both days, and had someone escort us from the hotel to the meeting point on day 2. As a solo traveller, this was really helpful. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and passionate about both Troy and Gallipoli. I highly recommend this tour!

We thoroughly enjoyed our two day trip to Troy and Gallipoli. From the beginning, it was very well organised. The drivers and administrative staff were all very helpful and friendly. Both guides in Troy and Gallipoli were passionate about the history and enthusiastically shared this with the group. Staying the night was a good option as we really got to appreciate the area and the long journey to and from Istanbul was not on one day. I would have no hesitation in recommending this trip.
