Noticing how carpet-selling tactics were irritating time-poor independent travellers, Mehmet Esenkaya and his Australian wife Christine launched these small-group tours led by entertaining, well-informed guides, without any shopping side trips. Half-day tours include the Temple of Artemis and Ephesus; full-day ones add the Ephesus Museum and Mary's House. The Basilica of St John, Terraced Houses and Șirince cost €10 extra each.
