Our group of 8 had an excellent tour with our Guide "Alex". He was waiting for us when we came off the ship. The air conditioned bus was welcoming and clean. Alex was very informative (his English was very good) and he fit the tour to suit our needs and requests. Umbrellas were provided to keep the heat of the sun off of us when walking around Ephesus and he graciously took our group pictures in strategic beautiful locations. The House of Virgin Mary and ancient city of Ephesus were definitely highlights but we also learned about the art of carpet making right from the way they obtain the silk to the hand tying of knots. We were able to walk barefoot on several carpets to feel the difference while served some traditional Turkish beverages. Another highlight was going to a leather producer and having our own private fashion show on the runway just like the stars. Our guide provided us time for shopping with out feeling rushed and let us even sample some good Turkish Delight. We would highly recommend this tour!
