Christine, Mehmet & Mete make an engaging team: friendly, efficient and extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Ephesus and the surrounding classical ruins. And, as promised, there were NO visits to souvenir or carpet shops! This was completely the classy, personal experience we were looking for.

Very knowledgeable and flexible guide meant we were able to really appreciate this amazing site. Of the optional extras, we thoroughly recomend the terraced houses - wonderful mosaics, but maybe we were too impressed with everything else to enjoy Mary's House or St Johns Basilica.
