Reviews About Ephesus Tour from Bodrum
We chose Ephesus Tour and were very pleased. The House of the Virgin Mary is a spiritually rich place. We drove on the whole because of her. When we got there, we were very pleased. The place is prayed for, saturated with positive energy. We left little notes – we are really looking forward to the fulfillment of desires. In Ephesus itself, I really liked the amphitheater – when you look at such a structure – you feel so tiny – it takes your breath away. Join history
Our second trip was an excursion to Ephesus – a city with a very rich history. We were worried that this time the guide might not be as well-read as the last time. And in vain – everything, as always, turned out at the highest level. In Ephesus, the most memorable is the Library of Celsius – a very interesting architectural ensemble. Well, another amphitheater – a masterpiece of ancient architecture. Of course, Ephesus needs a lot of time – the ruins are vast. We will return – we will go again with you.
It takes only an hour to drive from Bodrum to Ephesus, be sure to take this opportunity and visit Ephesus. We really enjoyed our trip, especially the guide, an English speaking girl who had been telling us about Ephesus all this time. As part of this trip, we visited the house of the Virgin Mary, which is a place of pilgrimage for Christians. The energy here is amazing. Thanks to Excursion Market team for this day!
The whole family went on a trip to Ephesus. Something reminded Greece – ancient ruins, an odeon, an amphitheater – the culture is very similar. The brothel is a rather unexpected attraction. The most important thing is the ancient wonder of the world, the Temple of Artemis. Of course, this is not a temple at all, only a column has survived – but nevertheless – there were, they testified. Thank you for organizing such a wonderful excursion.
