We were in Turkey not for a very long time. we visited istanbul, ephesus, pamakkale, anatalya, fethiyye and then went to the greek islands. We actually just booked a bus ticket to ephesus but then decided to go with the guided tour in ephesus and pamukkale. The tours were good, guide was intelligent and food was delicious. In short time, we could manage to see a lot. The bus journey was really long and a bit tiring but the buses were comfortable. Turkey is a very big country. M. Karlsonn

Ephesus and Pamukkale are two great sites to see. We did the tour by bus and it was very long bus ride. It becomes budget but I can suggest you to take plane instead. Otherwise everything was perfect in the tour. recommended.

We booked this tour online before we came to turkey. they were very quick in replies and made everything clear for us. the bus journey was a bit tiring but we enjoyed ephesus and pamakkale a lot. The guide John (maybe Jan) was perfect and very informative.
