This was a good tour and our guide was very knowledgeable. We certainly would have missed some of the significance of the Ephesus site if we went on our own. Our guide scheduled visits to St Johns church and the Virgin Mary's house to go at the least busy time, however, with several cruise ships in port and Ephesus being the star attraction, you cannot help but share the Ephesus experience with hundreds of other people. Still, our guide did a great job getting us through the site. I did not like the carpet presentation at the end. While the lunch was good and the presentation interesting, of course there is a hard sell to buy a carpet. I had absolutely no interest in buying a carpet, so it made me feel awkward. However, all the tours seemed to include this stop
I'm usually a do it yourself travel person, but the Vatican museums can be overwhelming so I decided to book this tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made it a better experience. Plus, on a Saturday in May, there were thousands of people in line so the skip the line option is worth it alone.
