Touring ancient Ephesus with an informed, thoughtful local guide Apr 2023 What an experience. We booked a private tour with Troy Tours, and I was impressed by how prepared and communicative the organizers were. They helped us pick the ideal date for our trip (i.e., helping us avoid dates with higher-than-average cruise ship tourists), and worked with us to find the best flights to/from Istanbul. They arranged transportation to and from the airport, making the whole process seamless. Where things really got good: the tour itself. Our tour guide was Leyla, and just as others have said, she was informed, kind, and knew how to make each point of our trip interesting. We could tell that she modified her tour type based on her audience’s interests; we are history and architecture buffs, and she made sure to connect dots for us that only history nerds would care about. Because we were on a private tour, Fatma helped us get a good sense of the day’s activities and re-calibrate how long we spent at each location according to our interests and curiosities. If we end up in Turkey again, Leyla and her team will be hearing from us. What a delight she was, and we cannot recommend her enough. Please note that you will be given the opportunity to see local artisans in the rug-weaving and ceramics industries. They’ll show you the ins and outs of their crafts (e.g., with the weavers, we saw how silk was processed from cocoons, dyed, and bundled, and how the famous Turkish double-knot technique worked). The artisans will, of course, give a sales pitch – they’re trying to make a living like everyone else. You are never pressured into making a purchase; just go in there treating it like a museum experience, ask the questions that interest you, and enjoy local artisans taking time out of their day to teach you things you are unlikely to learn elsewhere. Thank you Troy Tours..Iglesias Tour Group!

Had a great time in Turkey. Troy Tours was great, no problems. Tour guide Ozkan was excellent. So much to see, the people were so friendly and nice, would recommend this trip to anyone . . Also, such nice people on the tour. Troy Tours seems to attract a nice group of people and their guides are terrific . I went to Israel with them previously and loved it as well.

A wonderful trip with a very well-organized tour director I enjoyed this tour very much! The hotels were of the great quality, the tour guide was very intelligent and information he provided was very interesting. Visited great places in Turkey – highlights for me were a cruise in Antalya, ballooning in Cappadocia, and a Bosporus river cruise. Definitely good value for money! Thank you
