    Our family had a great time in the Ephesus tour which organized by toursce with a guide Mrs. Ela. They picked us from our hotel exactly at the time we agreed on. The tour was from 9am to 6pm. We visited most of the historical places such as the Ephesus ancient city ruins, the House of Virgin Mary, Basilica of St. John and Ephesus museum. we also stopped a lot of interesting local places like seven sleepers and Selcuk town. Mrs. Ela gave us a lot of local tips. She was highly knowledgeable and spoke fluently in English and Spanish. I would highly recommend this private day tour to anyone who’s coming to Kusadasi and want to enjoy the best-guided tour in this city.
