Troy day trip from Istanbul was great. Beautiful sights, a lot of historic places, great attention, and a very knowledged guide made this trip a time to remember!

Although the tour indicates that it would be 16 hours, if you are brisk, you might get back by 9 pm - which makes a lot of difference! the tour is nearly 12 hours of bus ride. since there were only 5 of us, it was a very comfortable ride. hopefully we weren't noisy companions and thankfully, our company wasn't. lunch stop is on the way and you get another break on the return. a short boat ride helps break the monotony of the ride.
Troy itself is a whole gathering of ruins - with a longish walk around the ruins. Understanding and appreciating Troy helps if you have been to Greece we came after spending a week. The ruins means a lot is left to imagination and the guide. our guide - Mustafa - did an honest, sincere job of explaining Troy from 2 millenia ago.
definitely worth a visit - if you can put up with a long journey and hopefully you have quiet company!

Mustafa is a great guide and took great care of us. He h has a good knowledge of history. The mini van was very comfortable.

We were a little concerned that the journey to and from Istanbul would be too long but the guides made it all very interesting and the journey time was fine. As well as the commentary from the guides we also enjoyed the views of the countryside while traveling to and from the site of Troy. Everything went according to the schedule and we found the experience at Troy extremely educational. The trip included a ferry ride and stops for breakfast extra cost and lunch included. My only suggestion for improvement would be for the guides to allow us a little free time on our own at the Troy site so that we could soak up the atmosphere there. I can definitely recommend this trip. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The tour was interesting although the two-way car trip took up the majority of the day so do take note of this.

Part of the area used for animal sacrifice at Troy.


Ruins of troy

Just rubbles and rocks. Your imagination needs to be rock solid to be able to envision how Troy was!


Replica Wooden Horse of Troy

The replica of the Trojan Horse was magnificent. But you would need butts of steel to endure the journey to this place if you are doing a day tour to visit this site.

What did they find? How did they find it? Where in the city was it found? What happened to it? Where is it now? You must go on the trip with a guide to hear the stories.

Our guide explains what makes the city special and about various technologies used to protect the city.
