We had a private group tour with our family (7 people). Our guide Abdullah and the private car picked us from the sea terminal and brought us to the hot spots in Istanbul. It was very nice to have the opportunity to be so flexible in tour planning and to see the most important places of interest in Istanbul. Our... More

I spent some time researching tours for our very long trip in Europe and decided on Archeologous for the Santorini day (a ship cruise port). They were amongst the very best of the tours we used, and we were certainly not disappointed. Wonderful guide, informative, flexible on the day and a lovely person to spend our day with at such...

In my experience there 2 types of guides: one type knows everything there is to know (maybe even passionate about it) and is able to transmit this knowledge (and maybe passion) into the people he is guiding, the other type know everything there is to know and just delivers it almost mechanically (never ending lists of facts and figures) Unfortunately,...

I just returned from my first trip to Europe where I used the travel company Archaeologous to make my travel and day tour reservations while in Athens. They suggested and booked for me, the one day cruise going to three islands, Hydra, Poros and Aegina. It was simply a delightful day filled with scenic beauty, live music, entertaining guides, delicious... More

Our travel group of 14 was on the RCL Serenade of the Seas May 19-31, 2013 western Mediterranean cruise. We booked private all day tours with Archaeologous at stops in Kusadasi, Athens, and Santorini. We could not have been more pleased with our drivers and guides!!! They were prompt, courteous, knowledgable, and accomodating. The vehicles were spacious, new, and comfortable.... More

Archaeologous Tours did a wonderful job. We booked a private tour for 20 of which 12 were children. John our guide for Izmir was on time and waiting for us at the port. He was entertaining and very knowledgeable. Our short schedule was accommodated with no issues and our lunch at the Hali Village was great. In Istanbul we had... More

Our special charter required a very flexible and professional approach and we had been very let down by other agents who were not sensitive to our needs and treated us like any old cruise company when ours was a very different product. Once a year we charter one of the Windstar cruise ships and have on board the English Chamber... More

This was a quite complex tour arrangement as alluded to by the reviewer. The excursion covered three major cities in Turkey plus accommodations, transportation, and refreshments for both the musicians and the traveling audience. It was a challenge but the principals of the whole excursion effort were pros in their own right and made it easier to accomplish a smooth... More

As part of a long weekend in Istanbul, my wife and I arranged a tour with Archeologous. With a limited amout of time it was a great way to sightsee and be guided to hidden attractions around the city. We've used this company last year for Ephesus and were very impressed.

I don't usually recommend companies-- just places, but the outstanding service of your company deserves a couple of my kudos. I had traveled to Turkey before a couple of different ways --backpacking and pensiones as a younger man, on ship cruise organized big tours, and the wife and I with a guide book. Maybe it's my age or want of... More
