My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed this outing. It was great to get out of the hustle and bustle of Istanbul. Our guide was Baruk. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. We went there not really knowing what to expect. We left knowing more than we ever even could of imagined. If you ever want to visit this historic site. I highly recommend taking the tour. You will get so much more out of it. As it has been mentioned before yes it is quite a roadtrip, I personally love roadtrips. You see so much more of the country this way. Take in the beauty of the country. Everyone at Crowded house was great. They responded quickly to all my messages. We were on the Asian side and they helped us make special arrangements for pick up and drop off at our hotel I highly recommend this tour. The meal that was provided was also quite yummy!

Funds had everything arranged perfectly. The guide was great and very knowledgeable. I learned a lot from him. It was fun to have someone there to have Troy-educated discussions with. As always, GetYourGuide did a great job of making a lifelong desire to see Troy better than I imagined! Thank you to all!

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!

While I really liked the tour and I totally recommend it, I should say that making the visit in one day is super heavy. Five hours one way and another five back tired a lot, I recommend taking the two-day one that includes Galipolli.

Guide was very knowledgable about Troy, enjoyed the experience
