I will be landing at izmir airport from istanbul in the morning and would like to take a private tour of ephesus and house of virgin mary. Since I'll leave for Alacati in the evening,my suitcase will be with me as I will not book any hotel at izmir. So can I take the tour with my luggage kept in the car or will there be a problem?

I am trying to arrange a private tour for 17 or 19 people off a cruise ship in May 2016....we arrive at Izmir and our primary request is to visit Ephesus and the house of the Virgin Mary....we do not wish to visit any leather or carpet factories, our interest is sight seeing and not purchasing items...we are travelling from Australia and many of us are spending 6 weeks travellling Europe so we have no room for extra items of leather, carpets or pottery....I have read some very bad reviews of other companies which force you to visit these places but we seriously are not interested but would love to have a great guide who can explain these amazing places and history to us 60's something oldies.....many thanks Dianne Simms
