Our party of 8 really enjoyed our day in Ephesus thanks to our excellent guide, I can't say enough about her enthusiasm and knowledge. The day was very well planned out and we saw everything we had requested, Despite my skepticism about the the carpet cultural experience, it was very interesting and one of us did end up buying a rug that she is very pleased with. We had a very nice lunch at a local restaurant, eating Gozleme (Turkish Nomad pancakes), sitting on cushions on the ground - it was like a movie set. Definitely request guide was excellent!
excellent staff very professional, pleasant and liable ... you just have to say more or less what you want and makes you a program suited to your needs really good..... Was my journey through the best Berkay and staff.
