What a wonderful experience. Our guide aka Rose and driver Ferret (sp), were amazing! She was very knowledgeable about history and present day in Turkey. Very patient and great sense of of humor. Shared the local art and food establishment, Lotus Garden Ceramic and Seven Sleepers Pancake Garden and had a marvelous time. We all enjoyed the “eye candy”, Thank you for telling us about your wonderful people and culture.

My guide, Begu, was superb.

Fluent English, knowledgeable, insightful.

Had multiple, in depth conversations in general about Turkey and Ephesus in particular.

If you are interested in learning the history and culture of this period, Begu is the one to ask for.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and we had a great tour, we were surprised that we were the only two people on the tour, we assumed it would be a small group tour. being such a small group it was easy to hear all the info and we could "modify" the stops a little since we weren't hungry right away. the meal was very good and the visit to the co op was informative. they did bring out carpet after carpet to show us he work (and try to sell us something) but weren't pushy as we live in Hawaii and have more of a tropical décor and the Turkish rug just wouldn't fit into the design

We had an amazing tour of all 3 major sites via Kusadasi. Our guide Ibrihim was very knowledgeable and pleasant. We could not have been happier with the tour and the very nice lunch banquet that was included. We were traveling with 2 toddlers and my mother-in-law. Ibrahim was patient and thorough. We got to see everything. His explanations were thorough and accurate. He understands what tourists want to do. Very safe and comfortable. Amazing sites off the beaten path. Very fond memories, we are anxious to return.
