Visited Perge and Aspendos on a half day trip booked through TUI. Both sites were breathtaking and enhanced by the knowledge of guide who accompanied us. My only criticism would be that a full day would have been better in order to have more fully explored the Perge site

The trip was well organized. We were taken directly from the hotel at the earlier fixed time. The choice of places was very good. Explanations were in English, however the guide explained the most important points also in German. In Side we were left to ourselves which was OK
