I would very highly recommend anyone to take this trip back in time. It was a great day trip from Istanbul by plane that allows you to see everything. The archaeological site in Ephesus is simply magnificent, to say the least, the last house of Mary, mother of Jesus is also quite amazing! A tip, bring some empty bottles to collect the special waters that pour from 4 fountains there! The tour guide was quite knowledgeable and attentive. The shopping went without any hassle, lots of information they provide. Great day.
