Ephesus is a place you must see if you are interested in roman ruins of history. It's amazing that so much is still intact in such a concentrated area. There is excavation still ongoing so there will be more to see as time goes on. The romans were amazing engineers. My tour turned out to be simply perfect. My guide (Mr. Riza) was a treasure trove of information. He has a great deal of knowledge of the culture and history of Ephesus and the entire region. The tour started out amazing and got better as the day went on. it felt as though I was walking backward through time. So many things to see. My driver (Mr. Burak) was right on time waiting for us at each spot. Great driver. Thank you both for a tour I will never forget.
