Izmir to Istanbul

Jump to last reply

We have the last leg of our trip to Turkey to nail down - leave Izmir on Fri Nov 6 for Istanbul. We found lots of flights but are also considering a combination of train + ferry. But I found this online:

"The 6 (Altı) Eylül Ekspresi (September 6th Express) between Bandırma and İzmir, used to be coordinated with the İDO fast ferry between Bandırma and Istanbul, allowing you to travel between Istanbul and İzmir via fast ferry and train in less than eight hours—about the same travel time as the bus—but in greater comfort at a fare similar to that of the bus trip. However, these schedules are no longer coordinated, making this a longer journey (9 to 13 hours—the bus takes 8 to 9 hours, the plane less than an hour), which is not so convenient."

Any personal experience of the train/ferry combination? Comfortable? Scenic trip or not? Comments?

Thanks for your help in advance.
