Hi, we attended on a all inclusive Turkey coach tour and our tour director was very knowledgable. There are a lot of explanatory signs around the site that you can follow. I would suggest you read up on Troy via the web before going so you do not get confused with Levels and Epochs.
Regarding travel to site, it is a long haul from Istanbul, at least 4 hours one way.
Hope this helps.
