Highlight of my trip to Turkey! If you make it to this area, you must stop by Ephesus. And this is a fantastic way to do it!

While the sites were amazing, I have to first talk about the incredible guide I had. She was one of the best I've ever had anywhere! Incredibly knowledgeable in history, politics and culture, she has been doing this for decades and it shows. The tidbits and different points of view I learned from her were some of the things I remember most about the trip. We also had a very mixed group with different needs and interests and she did a fantastic job making sure everyone got the most out of their experience.

St. John's: Neat to see this but even better to hear all the explanations from the guide. I would have not known what I was looking at if it wasn't for her!

Ephesus: Incredible. The guide makes a big difference telling neat antidotes and explaining things you'd never know otherwise. Plus, free time is included to get to explore on your own.

Lunch: Some of the best food I had on the trip and I love that it was at a rug center that helped support local women. Yes, they tried to sell us stuff of course like you'll find on EVERY excursion but I actually learned a lot here about the silk and rug making process. In fact, while the rest of the group was shopping, I found myself outside with one of the women actually teaching me how to weave. I weaved a whole section and it was another highlight of the trip.

House of the Virgin Mary: I'm not Catholic but am Christian so I had some context. The guide helped explain so much more and I was surprised how much I enjoyed and was intrigued by this stop.

Polite and knowledgable guide. Excellent transport. Visit to carpet cooperative was very interesting but ultimately a sales excercise which is unfair to customers.

This tour was excellent. We were members of a small group and our guide was charming and well informed. We had a most enjoyable lunch where all the dishes were explained and, despite the sales pitch, the visit to the carpet factory was an interesting experience.

I have mixed views about this tour. It was incredibly good for the value (compared to the cruiseship tours). However, there is a LOT of walking in very HOT sun. I appreciated the airconditioned bus and the good tour guide who gave us tips at shopping/bargaining. Glad we had an umbrella but our calves tanned in the constant sun.
The best part was the Turkish lunch at the carpet making society.
It's too bad that we weren't able to shop more as it took the whole day (the entire time we were in port).
I also appreciated that they picked us up from the port.

Great tour! We ended up with a private guide and driver. Our guide was brand new to the profession and was a little timid, but she was very friendly and informative. We were driven around in a Mercedes van after getting picked from our cruise ship. My wife and I like to move quickly and our guide was more than happy to oblige. Similar shore excursions through the cruise company would have cost hundreds more. Definitely worth the money.

Excellent trip! So nice to get off the ship and have a private van waiting for you with your own personal guide! All at half the price of the cruise trips plus no waiting for people to load on / off a bus. We got to see everything and the lunch was fantastic. Our guide, "Honor" was fantastic and very knowledgable. I would definitely recommend this tour to everyone!

An excellent trip. Only complain was that we were told we were being collected at 10-00am when in fact we were expected at 9-00am. I understand that an E.mail was sent to my home advising us of this fact, but as we were already on our cruise this was not of much use.

Excellent ! Our tour was private and our guide was just terrific, Ober. We had an enjoyable time learning a lot about Ephesus and the surrounding areas. Our guide was helpful and very informative. Our driver was SAFE and did a great job getting us around.
We were very pleased with this trip and it was a good value for what we got in a tour.
Thank you Marla and Merrill Sinert

One of the best tours of our cruise. Our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. He really made this visit worthwhile. The food stop was crowded and the meat dishes were in short supply, but it was buffet style (all you can eat) and drinks with the meal included free soda, beer and red or white wine. This tour was well worth the price we paid.

It was like having a private tour all day from the moment we were picked up at port to the end of the day. Again a very personable, knowledgeable, experienced guide who spoke English clearly and was able to direct us around crowds and lead us to the most important sites.
