Seeing the ruins of Ephesus was truly amazing! Our guide was so knowledgeable of the history and made it come alive for us. This was the highlight of our whole trip to Turkey. I do wish we had more time to explore on our own. My only complaint is that the tour bus stopped at 2 different places to make sales pitches for local products. That's not what I came for.
