Excellent trip when you get to Ephesus and Pamukkale. It would have been nice to know in advance we would be stopping at all kinds of little shops that the tour operator was linked up with. It's exhausting being on a bus all day, let alone stopping at some leather shop to try and sell tourist leather goods and then a jewelry shop and then a rug shop and then a stone crafting shop...If you can tolerate all that rubbish, it's worth doing. Otherwise, if you can rent a car and are comfortable driving around Turkey, do that instead.

The tour does not align with the description -- much longer days than the schedule calls for, no stop at a rug making pla.ce -- bad leather jackets instead. The entire experience felt very chaotic, from the 1/2 hour late pick up at the hotel to the transfer to the buses, and then again the transfers to vans at the end of the trip. Buffets were all the same even though in different locations. Luckily Ephesus and Pamukkale were beautiful, so despite the bad logistics, it was a trip worth doing

When I booked, it said my tour package would include a Turkish Folkloric Show. I was really looking forward to this and there was no show at all. Instead they took us to a gold store to be pressured to buy gold and to a leather shop for the same. I think I should get some $ back for no show! :(

Good , nice 2 days... Happy to see those lovely places... Only disappointing , because apart of seeing Ephesus and Pamukkale , the took us also to jewelery, ceramics and leather shop. We were practically pushing to buy something, always followed at least 2 people behind my back, trying to sell something. Lots of people from my group were fed up by that and they just been hurry to get exit as soon as possible. We spent in leather shop something around 35 min. I would prefer to spend this time for example in Pamukkale as there was not so much time to see everything and have nice swim in thermal Cleopatra pool.
