    We had an amazing day. Our group was to big for one van and we booked and got two instead. All organization was very flexible, friendly and helpful staff. Tour guides were just perfect; friendly, knowledge and super english speaking. We all liked the selection of the activities during the excursion very much. Great job guys

    Perhaps the largest Roman ruins in the world, this site must be number 1 on anyone’s list to see in the area. Marble everything, numerous tiny carvings that can only be pointed out and explained by a guide.
    The new “apartments ” section that entails a small additional fee was an unexpected surprise – it is very different from the rest of Ephesus and is also a must see.

    The iconic Library at Ephesus is just one of the feast of ruins and partial reconstructions of this amazing City, – you just can’t help agree with all the superlatives! This is worth making a journey just to see it. Also one of the seven wonders of the ancient world is Temple of Artemis is important.
