Awesome! A++ experience! Our guide, Gonca, was extremely knowledgeable, very accomodating, and personable. We would request her again. The tour was well organized and with Gonca's explanations we were very satisfied with the entire day. Our family is still talking about it a year later!

Excellent tour. Our tour guide was great!!! The lunch we had at the carpet factory was awesome. If you interested in buying a Turkish rag make sure you know the size of the rug you want. The rugs are unbelievable but can be pricey but you are getting a quality rug that will last for generations. Having a private tour is the way to go. Ephesus is a must see. Viator did not disappoint.

The guide was more interested in taking us to places to sell us products like ceramic and Carpets, than guide through the places. He should be a sales man. I read more about these places though "lonely planet" than from him. We didn't have any free time to explore Ephesus. We only saw the Theatre from a distance where I had to zoom to take pictures. Tour to the Temple of Artemis was a Joke, I had literally 5 minutes to get out of the van and take a picture. The guide just wanted to rush us to the shops. When we were in the shops, we had more than enough time to do shopping, there was no rushing us. He keeps saying everything is a cooperative and everything goes back to the people who works to make it. I later understood that it was nothing like that, saying "cooperative" was a trap to loot foreigners who would assume "Cooperatives" are what it would be like in European countries.
I didn't enjoy the trip. It was a complete waste of money. It would have been better to go with another group of people, so we didn't feel along, vulnerable and trapped. We were at the mercy of wherever he took us. It is not a great feeling when you are with a little child.
