Totally recommended!!! We join as a family of 5 and kids loved it too. I’m getting really excited with sightseeing so I booked this tour because the schedule looked really interesting. Ephesus is a dream! There are so many things to visit, so many things to learn there. Our guide was an amazing guy, he knew everything about Ephesus. I was impressed and our kids learnt a lot of things from this guy. Lunch was good, at a nice restaurant. The transfers were also fine. Take this tour if you have time, it’s incredible for sightseeing.
Just came back at the hotel. I just want to thank the agency for the excellent organization. Our day was full but we experienced zero inconvenience. We visited many places. Of course the highlight was Ephesus. The ancient city looks beautiful, ruins are well preserved. The ancient theatre was fantastic, a truly impressing structure. Everything was on time, transfers, and breaks also. We had a tasty lunch break at a place close to Ephesus. In general this is a very good option for sightseeing. Lovely places, interesting history, stunning views. It has everything.
A very interesting excursion. Recommended to all. I’m on solo vacations in Pamukkale but also wanted to explore other interesting parts of the country. Ephesus is simply unique. I was checking the reviews of this tour and they were all suggesting it. They were correct! Great agency, incredible tour guide!!! We had breakfast and lunch during the day. Many options in the buffet. I really liked the atmosphere at the house of Virgin Mary. The surroundings are beautiful and very tranquil. The ancient city of Ephesus is a miracle. Totally recommend this trip, it’s very informative and you get to see some nice spots.
