What people are saying about Kusadasi

Most worthwhile trip from Kusadasi - highly recommended

We were well pleased that we booked this taxi tour to fit in with the hours our cruise ship was in Kusadasi. Denis was an excellent tour guide and we appreciated all the information he was able to give to us as we drove to Pamukkale (Hierapolis) and also Laodicea. The hot springs are an amazing sight and the ruins of both Hierapolis and Laodicea are quite incredible. It was the highlight of our trip to Turkey! It was great to see something of the Turkish landscape other than what was close to the cruise ports. The van was very comfortable for our adult family of four and we appreciated the bottled water provided.

An awesome experience.

The tour guide arrived on time to pick us up from the hotel. We went direct to the boat. The music was nice and the staff was brilliant. We had lunch and there was more then enough to eat. We online and were taken back to our hotel. Will recommend and use this company again in the future.

Really good boat trip to some amazing bays

Really good boat trip to 3 amazing bays. Food was really nice too. Only issue was we were meant to be collected at 8.40 but I had to whatsapp the company because nobody came. We had to wait 30 minutes for a driver to collect us. But other than that really good trip.
