I was in Izmir for 2 days with my family, in Hotel Blanca. I found a brochure of this trip on the reception desk. The price was ok and i wanted my children to see the magnificent archeological site of Ephesus. The trip was organized very well, 3 hours of discovery with a tourist guide who speaks english very good, who is very kind and who has a knowledge limitless about Ephesus. My children enjoyed a lot too, Thanks a lot to everyone for this wonderful day.
