Our guide, Ahu, was delightful, her English excellent and her knowledge exemplary. We learnt a lot and would definitely like to visit Ephesus again. What a stunning place with so much history. The drive there and back was good too especially as we returned by a different route. It was interesting to see the agriculture and scenery outside Izmir. Thank you.
