We were unable to find the theatre after 90 minutes searching. We took 2 taxis. Asked directions of 5 tour guides and one tourist agency. No one knew of this theatre nor how to locate it. We were very disappointed

The information on ticket was wrong it gave a wrong address for the experience. We spent two hours trying to find it. It was only when we went into a travel agency that we found the correct address. I even sent a message but no one replied. The actual whirling dervish experience was very poor and not enjoyable. I would not recommend it.

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.
