Very long transits for an interesting but not exceptional destination
Sep 2018
I had to come on this tour and am glad I did. I have always wanted to visit Troy and this one day excursion from Istanbul is an easy way to see the site. I didn't want to spend several days in the area. (Others went on a two day tour which included the WW1 sights at Gallipoli).

Why go ? Because you've read Homer and want to see where it all happened.

Why not go ? It's a long drive - over 5 hours there and a little less (traffic) back to your hotel. You leave around 0630 and return beteeen 2230 and 2300 - traffic permitting. Time in Troy 2-3 hours, which is plenty unless you're a fanatic. Day includes plenty (not too many) food and toilet stops, 2 ferry trips scross the Dardanelles.

Troy is a moderately interesting archaeological site - nine cities on top of each other, abandoned 1500 yesrs sgo, vandalised by German archaeologists 150 years ago and handled more carefully since then. A new and significant artefact museum is due to open later in 2018 ('in a few weeks' we were told) which will significantly increase the detail you can see.

If you're struggling with what excursions to choose from Istanbul ... I woud overall give this an average rank. Different prices through different agencies for the same tour so shop around a little. I found my €75 including lunch reasonable value for money.
