A really great tour. The contact regarding the transfer was timely and uncomplicated. We were warmly welcomed at the winery, given a short tour and then we were allowed to taste some wines. The atmosphere was very cozy, so that we each ordered our favorites as a glass and sat down in the evening sun. The driver is waiting on site, you can freely divide the time for winery/Zia. The 4 hours are absolutely sufficient for both. This is followed by a short transfer to Zia with free time. Of course, the village is very crowded at sunset, but the crowds spread out quite well. The village and the sunset are really very beautiful. I definitely recommend the tour! :-)

I really love Gurkan’s (the tour guide) knowledge of the sites and his hospitality to us. He is a professional tour guide that has a passion in what he does, so my husband and I really enjoy each site’s tour. The driver, Okan is punctual, warm and show an excellence hospitality. He even brought us a hot pretzel bread as an extra service! We love them both specially and become good friends! I highly recommend this tour! My husband and I will definitely book through this site again!

Melih was our guide and well inform on the subject. The tour was a rushed at times and being an older couple, we struggled to keep up with the pace. A lot of time was wasted at silk and leather factories and the feeling was that some monetary kickback was involved in possible sales. Less time should be spend there and the guide should protect his guests against overzealous salesmen

Very good script, Spanish guide Gonca very attentive and kind. Very good itinerary and hotels. It was so worth it. Only one point of attraction in Izmir, Church under Polycarp's tomb, I would have liked to have visited and it was not possible. But, I continue to trust GetYourGuide and their good service and attention to customers and the products they buy.

Nice winery, delicious wine and the village of Zia at sunset a dream.
