    Book this wonderful trip from Turunc about 3 hours drive, but was worth it! The ruins of Ephesus are very well kept and gives insight to the Roman rule in Turkey. We had an amazing guide who was very informative. Please remember that you have to walk a lot, so wear comfortable clothes, take a hat, water and most importantly comfortable walking shoes. Entrance fees are not included in the price, so keep some cash with you, our guide helped us with the tickets. Breakfast and lunch was great and provided by Mares Travel which comes within the price.
