Group tours always incude a shopping part, this is the way they can maintain cheap prices. Only private tours are free of it. Have a lovely holiday season! AnneSee more

    Best parts:
    Hotel pickups and drop-offs, good communication with local agency
    Worst parts:
    The tours are very traditional and geared towards older clientele, including commission-based shopping stops which I was not interested in.

    I loved Turkey and found it a very safe country to visit. A lot of places are set up for tourists, which carry pros and cons.

A lot of places are set up for tourists, which carry pros and cons. The first day I participated in a tour organized by the local tour agency, I was quite shocked to encounter 3 different shopping stops, as I did not realize I had signed up for shopping tours. The tour agency didn't think to alert me to this as they are accustomed to setting up this type of tours for other tourists. As someone who is used to more independent travel this was not my style and quickly grew to resent the amount of time I was 'stuck' in these shopping stops. On this same trip I signed up for a few Airbnb Experiences and found them to be much closer to my ideal way of experiencing the place—spending time with locals doing what the description of the experience said we would do (no hidden shopping stops). I tried to tell my local agency about Airbnb Experiences and they did not believe that these experiences would not contain shopping stops. The tourism industry offering the types of tours consisting of shopping stops needs a huge rehaul if it were to appeal to millennial and middle-aged travelers who are more used to custom-tailored experiences that don't make people feel stuck and having their precious little time abroad wasted on activities that do not appeal to them.See more

As the prices of these tours are low, they make shopping stops, a common practice all over the world. If you are a regular budget traveler, surely you have encountered this before. Only private tours guarantee that there will not be shopping unless directly requested by the client. However, the cost of such a private tour is much higher. As for the airbnb experiences, if you look carefully, they work out much more expensive than what you paid. For example in Istanbul, a ½ day tour of the classics costs 50€ per person but it only includes the guide’s services. No pick up, no lunch and no entrance fees (that are expensive in Istanbul) . The tour you chose cost 70€ for a full day with pick-up, guide’s services, lunch and entrance fees. So the two tours cannot be compared at all. Best regardsSee more
