Check out two Bursa tour reviews we selected from Tripadvisor, which give you an idea of what to expect at this attraction

Unforgettable Bursa trip

The best tour I had in Turkey, Bursa is a must-visit city; we enjoyed the furs and birds, the jungle safari, and the cable car. It was snowing and felt incredible; we also enjoyed lunch, the Monira sweet factory, silk house, and green mosque. The trip was very well organized and rich in historical information. Thanks to the tour operator, Mohamed Hassan, he made the day unforgettable.

Great experience, must try!

Great experience, must-try! The hotel pick-up was spot on, the ride was lovely, and the guide provided bilingual notes across the ride to Bursa. The several stops around the road were just perfect as we were able to get several locally made products.
