We had a an absolutely wonderful tour of Ephesus with Mete Pakyurek as our guide. There were five of us (four adults and a teenager). We were greeted at the port by Mete and his driver. The van's seating arrangement allowed Mete to face us and focus his full attention on us as we traveled from Kusadasi Port to Ephesus and other local sites (e.g., the church of St. John). His explanations of the history, and of each site we visited were terrific. Mete is very personable, knows his subject and is able to answer most any question. He gave us insights into the ancient life here, and also into contemporary life in Turkey. A highlight of our day was lunch at Melitour's country home, where we were shown terrific Turkish hospitality and served a delicious lunch of traditional dishes. Mete had a well planned itinerary for our day, and we moved from site to site very smoothly. He had tickets at the ready for entry, so we were able to concentrate and fully experience the treasures of each historical site and museum, all with his excellent explanations. Our Ephesus tour with Mete was one of the highlights of our trip, and we could not recommend it more highly.
