I have been in this tour last saturday. I am really interest in Ottoman history. And the city, Bursa, is the first capital of the empire. When we got into the bazaar, I felt the history of Ottomans. The guide, ahmet, was really informative about the history of Ottoman. He answered all the questions patienly. He was enthusiastic to explain the Ottomans.
Really appreciated the service

The trip was excellent, I just didnt like the driver while driving because he was faster then roads allowe him to drive., I wish that you can be careful about choosing a driver with my points. I am giving less point because there is no place to put points for driver. I am sorry.

I joined bursa day tour with my family. It was very good but I have a little disapoint because they did not make any discount for my childeren. They told me that if make discount we will not bale to provide meals and seat for your child that's why ı had to pay for them too. I was not able to carry them on my lap. Overall, service was fine and they were on time for everything.
