    Ephesus is a wonder of the world! Our guide, Nizamettin, was as great as Ephesus. The tour is a must-do if you visit Turkey.

    At first I was hesitant to buy this 1 day Istanbul to Ephesus travel package, but I am glad I did. The package included airfare, lunch and pickup from hotel to airport and from airport to the start of the Ephesus tour and back. Ephesus is obviously a city of ruins but when the tour guide starts explaining the important events that made Ephesus one of the great cities during the Roman times. your imagination starts to wonder. For Christians, take note that this was the ancient city where St Paul wrote his letters to the Ephesians. St John the Beloved remains are buried in the Basilica of St John, also in Ephesus. The last leg of our tour is a visit to the House of the Blessed Virgin Mary, an hour away from the Ephesus ruins. Consider this as a pilgrimage. I highly suggest taking this 1 day trip to Ephesus if you don’t have time in your itinerary. A couple of days tour will allow you to visit more places in Ephesus.

    Te trip was very good. The guide Nizam was pretty good. Your agent in Selucik Apsas travel was good and hospitable
    The unfortunate part was return leg. The flight was booked to SAW airport on Asian side. It took 2 hrs plus to reac hotel Sheraton Istanbul aTAKOY. The driver tried his best.Even if I had taken a latter flight leaving Izmin but landing in Attaturk, I would have reached hotel earlier
    Kindly keep this in mind for furture bookings

    Best Regards
