We decided to do a private tour as it was only slightly more expensive than a 15 plus people group. Glad we did.
Hakan met us at the hotel and went through the tour.
We had Zeynep who had a excellent command of English.
We did the Ancient city of Ephesus and also being a private tour we requested to visit a Turkish rug making factory and they have a restaurant with traditional Turkish food which was one of the best we tasted! After that as we had time we went to a leather factory where high end European leather labels are made and bought some items at 75% off the retail prices. Highly recommended and will use again.
