    Booked online from adavegastravel.com which was convenient, secure and discounted price. Our guide reliably picked us at the hotel on time. He was Ilkay Candar (Kai) and he was professional, entertaining and knowledgeable. Ephesus is a must see collage of time and religions, better than Pompeii. Afterwards we had a delicious lunch and visited a carpet weaving factory which was interesting but a little hard sell. The carpets were amazing but expensive as you would expect for hand made.

    This was such an amazing visit. As a Christian it was a special place to visit. The biblical history was incredible and brought much of the new testament alive for us!

    What an amazing glimpse into history. This early A.D. Society had a terra cotta pipeline to bring fresh water into homes and public baths. They designed intricate mosaics for their walkways. They used condo-type residences; created a massive 69,000 seat theater. And built a library in the style of Petra’s. Wear shoes with good traction, and a hat. Consider an umbrella as another source of shade. Bring water. Be prepared for stairs, if you visit the fascinating terrace houses – and you should. And get a good guide with a professional travel agency like Adavegas Travel. Our guide was our excellent guide. Our guide highlighted unique items, such as the stone backgammon board. You need at least three hours to adequately visit this amazing place.
