We were very pleased with this excursion. After seeing how many large groups/tour buses where at these sites, the small group experience was certainly worth while. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. All the excursions we looked at included the rug demo but this one was no pressure.
My wife and I were amongst a group of eight people on this tour. Our tour guide Begum Hekimoglu was very knowledgeable & personable. the pace was slow enough that we could absorb and enjoy without feeling rushed. The trip to the Turkish carpet mart at the end of the tour was good until the high pressure sales pitch made us both feel trapped and under stress to leave. This was the best tour by far on our 12 day cruise to Greece, Italy and Turkey.

EXCELLENT tour because of Tour guide, Hakan. He was most informative and outstanding in every way. This tour was the best that we have experienced in our many travels. This is an excursion not to be missed.
The guide had a degree in history and provided great commentary the whole day. We never waited in line as she had walk right in arrangements. Stopped for lunch at a great buffet of local cuisine and they even had live dancers. 5 cruises in the last 5 years and this was the best excursion ever.
