For those have read The Iliad OR have watched that 2004 Brad Pitt’s movie this tour will be very rewarding.

Since I’m a hardcore ancient Greece fan and an enthusiast of all things ‘B.C.’, visiting the site of Troy has always been a dream. Finally, I decided it was due to come true during my trip to Istanbul in March, 2021.

An unexpected bonus: there were only 2 people on the tour, me included, plus our guide and a driver - basically, it felt like a private tour. Thanks to that, we have spent less time picking everyone up from the hotels in Istanbul, so there was more time left for visiting the new Troy museum, as well as for lunch and dinner.

Our guide Ensar is a very nice person, he's helpful and friendly, so it was a pleasure to meet him. The driver (sorry, I don't remember his name) was competent and drove carefully. It is quite a long way from Istanbul, so be prepared – but, to me, it was worth it.

It took me 5 hours bus travel from Istanbul to Eceabat to board the Ferry to Canakkale where the City of Troy is located. The view on the Ferry (top deck) is beautiful so I urge everyone to climb to the top deck of the ferry. The ruins of the various civilization of Troy (from Troy 1 to Troy 9) could be seen from the layers of soils and walls; amazing to see the excavation work that Turkey has done to uncover the history of Troy. Advisable to wear comfortable walking shoes because the site are not a flat land area.

Overall the tour was very good, however it could be improved in two main areas. The first one the food provided was not good.

The tour starts with a pickup which was good and on time, then a long drive to Troy which includes a rest stop and a lunch break. After lunch we took a Ferry to cross from the European side to the Asian side and drove about half and hour to get to Troy. Once there the ruins were great if you are into history and our guide provided good information. Overall the tour takes a full day, however you are really only a couple of hours in Troy.

A long trip, lunch, was acceptable at best, Troy was fantastic although the guide (who owned the gift shop and a small hotel next door) was inaccurate with his historical knowledge. City 6h was attacked by the Greeks not city 7 a big mistake from someone who was born in Troy. Anaeas fortified city 7 before he left for Italy where his descendants founded Rome.

A day trip to Troy is crazy hectic and worth it only if your really a history buff and really interested in the history. It’s a better option to opt for a 2 day trip rather than a day trip which gets crazy hectic , it’s a very long drive to and fro. Though our guide had a great in dept knowledge about the place and everything so it was wonderful experience.

Hello,
Today I just tried to complete a reservation, but an error message was received. But I received two times the charge for the amount in my credit card.
I would like to go next October 25th, (Vladimir Medina, I am staying in Samil Hotel).
Who could help me to know if my reservation is confirmed for only one person?
Thanks!

Ramazan from Crowded house was so accommodating & arranged our tours for us in a way which was far better than we imagined it could be.. We were able to do the day tour to Gallipoli from Istanbul, and be dropped off in Eceabat, as we were travelling further to Troy, Pergamon and Ephesus. After a wonderful tour of Gallipoli with our excellent and knowledgeable guide we were expecting to be dropped off at the ferry to cross to Canakkale. But Ramazan arranged for someone to accompany us on the ferry from Eceabat all the way to Canakkale. This young man even wheeled our luggage all the way to our hotel! The following morning, we were met at the hotel and taken to meet our bus for our tour to Troy. This was an outstanding experience, with, again, a superb guide who made it all come to life. Our lunch break was a unique experience at a Desen Halicilik a innovative carpet weavers Association where we were treated to a home made lunch. The carpets were of an outstanding quality all made by local women and the prices were excellent. We then drove on to Pergamon for another excellent visit to this wonderful sight. The tour ended in Pergamon but again with Ramazan's organization we were driven all the way to Kusudasi. The following morning we were picked up for a full day tour of Ephesus. Again a very informative guide and the highlight was the Terrace Houses which he guided us through although it was not part of the tour and dropped off at our hotel in Kusudasi after an incredible 3 days of excellent arrangements, friendly service and good guides.
Thank you Ramazan and your Team from Crowded House. We can certainly recommend this company.

Visting Troy was great -getting there and back was less great. The tour company picked me up at 6:00AM and brought me back at midnight. We spent two hours at Troy. Spend the night! It would be worth it and allow you to add Gallipoli to the visit.
