Wow. Begum was beyond an amazing tour guide. My wife and I were on our honeymoon and I booked this because I read that this was really the only way to really understand and see Ephesus. We did the personal tour from Izmir, so they picked us up in a car that allowed her to talk with us facing each other and we had such a wonderful conversation learning about Turkish culture, where we were going, and where we were, not to mention just sharing stories of traveling.
Once we were there.... Wow were the reviews right to say that this was the only way to do the tour. She was so well educated on everything that we asked about. We got the real information, learned so, so, much, and had a blast while doing it. She made it so easy to enjoy and it was OUR tour, so we could go at our own pace.
We ended by eating some wonderful food at a quiet Co-op where they make the Turkish carpets right in front of you. I couldn't have left any happier being able to see this and learn so much about how these are made.
When we went to Athens a couple days later, all we could say was that we needed to come back to Athens and hire a personal tour guide again because we know missed so much after having such a great time with Begum.
Thank you!!!! "
