I just came back. I can now say it’s a bit exhausting but 100% worthy! I really liked everything about this tour. Our guide was a very friendly and knowledgeable lady. Ephesus is so full of history and the site itself it’s impressive. I’ve learn so many things today. Pamukkale was phenomenal. The hot springs create such an amazing atmosphere. Unfortunately I couldn’t swim in the antique pool but my friends told me it was super. My day was perfect, full of sightseeing, lots of new info, a nice atmosphere. I really enjoyed my time today.
My wife and I really like to explore history and visit archaeological sites. So we went on this tour as Ephesus is a very interesting place. The bus was comfortable, everything was arranged good. In Ephesus we had a great time, there are so many things to see and the guide kept on giving us more and more information. Personally I believe Ephesus can be a standalone tour, it would be great if we had more time there. Pamukkale was also a nice place. Lunch was tasty. Overall, we had a nice experience. Thank you for the memories.
