What people are saying about Izmir Province

Very good. The tour guide Fatima, showed us all the interesting places and she knew a lot of interesting info as well. Also, we were a small group so she gave us extra time to get familiar with rhe things that we were most interested in. Also Ismail, the coordinator, made the impossible to happen. I almost couldn’t make it to this amazing city but he helped me and make it happened. I’m very grateful to him and my tour guide.
