The house in Panaya Kapulu, known as the House of Virgin Mary, was discovered in Ephesus after long research. According to Christian beliefs, after Jesus’ crucifixion, Mary came to this area with St Jean known as Apostle John and spent his last years there. This is why the house is considered a holy pilgrimage. This structure, which belongs to the Virgin Mary Association, was found in 1891. This small building, which was a small domed church, came to Ephesus.

Another important place to visit in the tour is Isa Bey Mosque. It was built in 1375 by Isa Bey, a member of Aydinogullari.

5 reviews for Ephesus and Pamukkale Tour From Istanbul 2-Days
  1. Magsino

    Absolutely, one of the best tours we have ever joined all around the world. It is worth every penny. We had a group of 6, including one elderly person. Ertugrul was our tour guide and everything was better than we could have hoped. Ertugrul was able to not only give us all of the information from a historical perspective but as a local, was able to describe the impacts and views of other locals. The travel package accommodation was nice and stellar. We decided to join the private tour for just our group since we had an elderly person with us on this trip. Ertugrul was gracious enough to allow all of us to move at our own pace, spend more time at every part we had questions about, and wait when we needed breaks. Thank you very much for your kindness. If we ever come back to Turkey again, we will join their other tours and continue to visit the country with them. Thank you very much.

    First, we really enjoyed our entire time in Turkey. We found Turkey to be an interesting and fun learning experience offering a wide variety of opportunities. We were surprised at how little I knew about the cultural and religious history of the area. And these guys really know what to do. The areas we visited were great for a first timer: Istanbul, Pamukkale, and Ephesus. Each is so different from the others which made it a nice combination. We will book a Cappadocia tour as soon as we can.

They created the most amazing itinerary for for us. All tour guides who were so knowledgeable and really gave us a flavor of each spot. We visited what we wanted and we determined the pace. Leave it to the experts and go with this travel agency. You won’t regret it.

Our guides were fabulous in Ephesus and Pamukkale Hierapolis. Hierapolis. This tour gave us more and allowed us more than we could ever imagine. 7 person of our group learned so much about Ephesus, Pamukkale and truly enjoyed our time there.

You can contact them online and you can do tailor made programe together or you can just pop into their office in Istanbul and organize your Turkey holiday tours face to face. You can hust call them or send an email. Thank you very much Mr. Erdogan
