Good tour of Ephesus and engaging guide

We had a fun day seeing Ephesus and surrounding village. Our guide was very engaging. We didn't quite get what was advertised. We didn't go to the Temple of Artemis (not that there's much there) or the Basilica of St. John and the House of the Virgin Mary. But we did get a delicious lunch. We probably could have done without the visit to the carpet and leather shops.
