Full description
Following a pickup from your hotel in Selcuk, enjoy a short drive to Ephesus in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan. Start by visiting the extensive ruins in the ancient city. Admire the fascinating ancient structures surrounding you, including the spectacular Temple of Hadrian, the stunning facade of the Library of Celsus, and the vast Great Theater.     Continue the tour to the Temple of Artemis, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Then, stop by the house of Virgin Mary, a popular place of pilgrimage for Catholics, where it is believed the Virgin Mary spent the remainder of her life.

    Our guide, Marcy is a warm-hearted passionate woman. She is a great storyteller, so as we were touring, we could envision the ancient places. Ephesus is really worth going with a great guide.

    This is probably the best tour I had during my stay in Turkey. Our guide Marsy was so informative and entertaining, made the whole tour a great experience.
