Easy online reservation, great service, first-class treatment! I was in Izmir last month with some friends and booked this tour on our first day in order to familiarise ourselves with the city. As a city, Izmir is beautiful, and it has a long, long history. We spent time in the city centre, and visited this iconic Clock tower. The architecture is cool, and we took many photos there. We also went to some ancient sites, and was quite interesting to learn the history. Walking around the centre was something exciting, as we saw the locals and we realised how friendly they are. A great city tour, and value for money!
Good option for families. Our holidays were all about spending time at the beach, but I couldn’t leave Izmir without a proper guided tour. We went around the city, at some very interesting sites. The ancient agora was impressive and there the guide told us many infos. We also visited a hill from where we could enjoy some fantastic views over the city. Another thing I want to say is that this tour is great for families. Many nice places for different interests, so there is no chance you won’t get excited about something.
I was on a business trip for a couple of days in Izmir and wanted to see everything. This tour was the best!! Our guide was so friendly and polite. She took us to some very interesting locations around the city, many sites from the Hellenistic and Roman periods. We also had some time for shopping. One thing I didn’t know is how to bargain. Now, I know! Clock Tower was one of my favourites and it’s the city’s landmark, I couldn’t miss it! This tour was exactly what I needed, I had a great time, and it was convenient with the transfers and everything.
