Solo traveller, been there a couple of days ago. Before coming to Istanbul, I research I bit about daily tours and found this one. I like history so I booked it right away. Booking online was easy! The road trip was quite interesting with some nice views. We first went to see a replica of the trojan horse. The city centre is cool and the guide, a lovely girl, explained to us many things. The group wasn’t that big, so we all met and became friends. Then we went to some archaeological sites, and we even saw ruins of ancient troy. This area is full of history, and I think one day is not even enough!!! Recommended for all!!! It was my pleasure to be part of it!
