Our guide Mehmet and driver were great. We were the only two on the the tour so we had them all to ourselves. Saw everything as described in the overview and enjoyed our tour as Mehmet was knowledgeable and personable. We learned so much from this tour. Also really enjoyed the lunch. Loved the tour and would recommend this tour if you are able to spend a day out of the city.

This was a perfect tour - very nice weather and excellent tour object. My tour guide - Sigdem Göktas - gave a very good and thorough presentation of Pergamum and Asklepion. She also gave me some free time to shoot photos and walk freely along the tour sites. My guide was very polite and answered to all my questions very patiently. Also drive to tour site and back was nice and in time. Pergamum itself is located to unique place on top of the hill, which gave exceptionally nice sceneries. Surely a place to visit. Many thanks to Neon and La Vacanza Travel!
