    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.

    This is an amazing tour! If you're on a cruise, this is your best bet - it's just your party, a guide and a driver. Lunch was delicious , Ephesus was unbelievable. You can take the tour at your own pace and ask as many questions as you want. A definite must if you're visiting Kusadasi/Ephesus.

    Very informative guide, we learned so much. Lunch was fantastic. Worth ever penny.

    The tour was very good until the high pressure sales pitch to buy a rug.

  • 30-Oct-2016

    We had a great guide who knew a lot. Turkey is a beautiful country. Our guide took us to a leather warehouse where we got a private
    runway show of models wearing the jackets. It was amazing. The lunch we had was so quaint, outside in a little courtyard and the food
    was really good. We then stopped at a rug making factory to watch the women weave those rugs. Some were as high as 35,000. The owner showed us the difference in the threading to see how they get so expensive. All handmade. It was very interesting. Nobody seemed upset when we declined to buy anything.

    Our tour guide Emri was awesome, he was very informative and knowledgeable. After the tour of Ephesus he took us for lunch to a place where they weave carpets, but the restaurant had a vineyard feel to it, and the food was fabulous, a variety of dishes keep coming. After lunch we had the tour of how they make their Turkish rugs, interesting enough, our friends purchased some rugs. All in all fantastic day.

    Our guide, and #34;Neel and #34;, was excellent. She was very knowledgeable and let us set the pace of the tour. Lunch was authentic Greek cuisine at a small family restaurant. Highly recommend this tour.
