Awesome! A++ experience! Our guide, Gonca, was extremely knowledgeable, very accomodating, and personable. We would request her again. The tour was well organized and with Gonca's explanations we were very satisfied with the entire day. Our family is still talking about it a year later!

Excellent tour. Our tour guide was great!!! The lunch we had at the carpet factory was awesome. If you interested in buying a Turkish rag make sure you know the size of the rug you want. The rugs are unbelievable but can be pricey but you are getting a quality rug that will last for generations. Having a private tour is the way to go. Ephesus is a must see. La Vacanza Travel did not disappoint.

This is an amazing tour! If you're on a cruise, this is your best bet - it's just your party, a guide and a driver. Lunch was delicious , Ephesus was unbelievable. You can take the tour at your own pace and ask as many questions as you want. A definite must if you're visiting Kusadasi/Ephesus.
