Yes, your guide can schedule your program to allow you to have enough time for shopping. Turkey is famous for high-quality handicrafts. Turkish carpets, tiles, ceramics, and leather products are some of those items you may like to see not only for shopping but also observing the arts of locals. There are government-supported carpet weaving associations, leather factories, and ceramic art schools you may be interested to visit to learn about the traditional and historical arts in the region.
Since the region of Ephesus is full of these art manufacturing centers, you may even order a leather jacket designed or a carpet woven specially for you. The products recommended by your guide are guaranteed for quality and price. Your money will be returned back if you can find the same item, with the same quality for a lower price. If you do not want to do shopping, please let us or our guide know about it.
