The shows is not performing, anyway they got my money and now awaiting the refund. I wasted my precious holiday time looking for a completely fake advertising. I called customer service and the provider, any of them are working. The Orient Express restaurant, beside the event hall inside the Sirkesi train station, indicated me that they stopped the show two weeks ago.

I had two major issues with this tour. It got cancelled last minute. The operator sent me an email at 5:15pm (start time was at 7pm) and I obviously didn’t see it. So I went there and only after I arrived I learned that it is cancelled. They should have called me or texted me. The second issue is that it is nearly impossible to find. The description doesn’t specify exact location, so we ended up running around several blocks and asking many people for help until we found it. Operator should do better job describing where the show is. We had terrible experience. I don’t recommend.

It was a really lovely experience. I enjoyed it a lot. And the sales executive called "baby Bayram" was really funny and remarquable person. He gave us all the informations we neesed before selling us the dinner cruise ticket. Big up to him🙏

This is a very solemn and dignified performance. Thank you. In the future, I would appriciate a short introduction and a hint if applauding is appropriate.
