Excellent tour !! From our pre-arranged pick-up from our Hotel to our guide it was one of the best tours I have done. Our guide made this visit totally worthwhile I enjoyed learning about Ephesus and the area its situated in our guide was full of information and was helpful answering any questions asked. The house of Virgin Mary was a must see hidden on top of a beautiful mountain where you could feel in the athmosphere the sense of peace and saftey it was wonderful to sit and zone out for a bit amongst all the beauty. Our transfer was perfect with a very clean and fresh minibus and an excellent driver and the view from Iznir to Ephesus was very pretty.
