Comment:
We feel very fortunate to have had Taner as our guide - what an amazing day! Our excursion (you have both a driver and a guide for the day) - was for the Ephesus and Terrace Houses tour (NOTE: while this is an extra fee, do NOT miss the Terrace Houses as this will be a highlight of your tour) which also included lunch and the carpet making demonstration tour. Taner met us at the Pier and took us to our waiting air conditioned mini-bus (very spacious for the 6 of us - 3 couples). On the 20 minute drive to Ephesus, Tanner used a microphone to tell us facts/info about Turkey and the region that we had docked in...all very interesting. Upon arrival, he handled the ticket purchase and made it clear that the tour was "our tour"...he loved to share this historical site and would give us the "full detailed tour" but if we felt that we wanted less info (or more!), it was all within our control. Taner worked really well with ensuring that he gave our group the time to take pictures and or spend more or less time at different points within the site...and he worked extremely well with the other tour guides to ensure that he timed our visits to the various interest points to be less crowded. I can't express how much we all enjoyed this tour - I felt like a student again (in a good way!) learning such amazing history. After Ephesus - Tanner took us quickly to see one of the 7th wonders of the world - and prefaced it with the right sentiment - as after Ephesus, it really can't compare! We then drove to one of the Co-ops for lunch. Lunch is provided for free by the co-op members (it is not paid for by the tour company). We had an absolutely delicious lunch of Turkish bread, salads and spreads, meatballs, chicken, tomatoes and french fries with a large watermelon slice for dessert - and because there were only 6 of us - Taner was able to sit with us over lunch and we learned a lot more about the Turkish culture. During lunch, Taner clearly told us that we had the option to see the carpet demonstration - or not - it was totally within our control. He told us that if we did want to see the demo, we should follow some "custom" tips in terms of taking the offer of a beverage (Turkish coffee or water - you should take it not to be rude, but you do not have to drink it). He then told us that they (the co-op members) would "encourage" us to buy a carpet...but that we should NOT feel obligated in any way. One of our 3 couples did decide to buy a carpet - but they didn't see one at the co-op that they liked, so Taner offered to take the one couple to the Co-ops other store near the Pier - and in addition - drop the other 2 couples off at the boat. He stayed with that couple until they made their purchase - which was very much appreciated. As one of the 2 other couples that did not buy a carpet - I can honestly say that I have had more intense sales pressure from "share time condo" sales people...and while I sincerely appreciated the meal and the demonstration - I did not feel obligated to buy. I am so glad that I went through the demo to better understand and appreciate this wonderful dying art/craft. Feel free to contact me for more info...but I give these folks multiple thumbs up!
