A Recent Review of this tour

We enjoyed an excellent personal tour yesterday by Zeynep. It really is the only way to see the area, small and one on one. She was waiting for us as we left our cruise and enjoyed many sites in the area including Ephesus and The House of Mary and a great lunch and carpet demo. I will do full review when I return. Thanks again!!!
