What people are saying about Akhisar

'A personalized 'History Channel' experience' It's a great time to see these historical sites at extremely affordable prices. Through historical references and myths, Emre explained the religious and trading significance of the cities to Anatolia and the whole region. Okan drove us smoothly between tour sites and our hotels in the vehicle's air-conditioned comfort. The team gave us a gift that included hand-sanitiser and more than enough masks for the whole trip, which we are using several days after the trip . Other bonuses include a night at the stunning Kusadasi beach, a trip to the world heritage Pamukkale, white limestone terraces and thermal pools, and enjoyed some tasty meals at little restaurants along the way. There's also an opportunity to get some great carpet, pottery and leather bargains at this time as local shops are keen for business. A great trip for singles and couples - might be a struggle with young kids.

We absolutely enjoyed our visit to seven churches and all that was arranged to make our visit comfortable and informative. We could not have asked for more. Our guide Emre Dasdemir and driver Okan Hizal are amazing team. They both bent backwards to accommodate our request and cater for all our needs. I would ask for Altinkum and same driver and guide everything if I visit Turkey.

Underbart och väldigt velplanerad.

I boked my trip online. The company GetYourGuide arranged the trip very well. The driver, convenience and the hotels were very comfortable and nice. I want to mention our guide EMRE. He was very nice, well trained and well informed. His dealing was excelent. Me and my parents enjoyed our trip with the copmany and its arrangements. I recomend them with 100% marks.

The tour surpassed our expectations. Emre (guide) Okan (driver) are a fabulous team. Everything was organized, we were not rushed and the food choices were awesome. With their help we were able to add another tour with our trip. We finished our last day of the 7 churches with Gonca, she made the tour just as enjoyable as Emre.

The tour was excellent and the guide we had, Emre was the best.

The was tour was wonderful. You offered one of the best tour guides with a driver that was always on time. Emre was definitely exceptional and extremely knowledgeable on his subjects. Faruk was a very good driver. Thanks Faruk. Baie dankie Emre. Regards Koos and Nellie
