A short half day tour concentrating on Ephesus. The pick up was spot on and straight to what we wished to see. Good steady drive from the driver throughout. The guidance was excellent with plenty of info. Overall a good value for money tour.

We worked with Samyeli Travel prior to our cruise. They arranged a wonderful private tour guide named Bulent (Bill) who met us at the cruise terminal. He was the Indiana Jones of Ephesus - quite famous it seems! He was an archeologist and professional tour guide - ask for him by name for a superb experience. He made the day... More

Me and my friend picked a random holiday destination where we both had never been before, not knowing much we decided we should get ourselves a tour guide and see what happened. It was not a regret.

We had a group of 10 people contracted with Samyeli Travel through the Cruise Critic Roll Call board for our ship. We selected the "P02" Istanbul tour.
