Some of the reviews for this tour seemed mixed. I don't know why because it was fabulous. There were about 15 people between 2 ships in port. Our guide was excellent. His English was impeccable and his knowledge was boundless. The 8 hours flew by and we saw so much. There was a carpet demo but it wasn't overly pushy. Lunch was good although I wish it was a little more "Turkish". I would not hesitate to recommend this tour.
