Thank you so much for responding to my e-mail. You've actually been the inspiration for me to post my question. I've been reading all the reviews to get more familiar with the different options for our excursions and it's been so helpful. I have e-mailed Hello Ephesus but have not heard back yet. We may just end up going with Ekol and faxing them our credit info. Did you deal with Ekol via phone or e-mail? Did you get the 25% off because you paid in advance or because you are a long time patron?
