I've been coming to Istanbul for some 40 years and took the history for granted as I'm not one for spending hours looking at every artefact. But this tour was an eye opener, explaining the back story of this amazing city's history. Istanbul - Nova Roma!

Selcuk Ephesus Tour was an excellent way to go for older adults! We had a great tour guide who really took care of his customers. Our group enjoyed one another and the tour even included an excellent lunch before going on . It was hot but we didn't have to do a lot of climbing and the distance walked was just right. The ruins were unimaginable...a walk into time long ago. The guide gave us historic information that made the ruins reflect the time and understanding of how they lived. Selcuk, where we stayed, was a wonderful moderate city, and staying close to the center of the city square made it enchanting. We stayed at the Selena Hotel which even offered breakfast in the morning and was totally affordable. People were friendly everywhere we went.

Ece was a greatly knowledgeable and personable guide. She laughed a lot. My teenager really enjoyed her while listening to all the history. It was fun going to shops and hotels to see Roman foundations and mosaics. We loved the panoramic view at seven hills where we stopped for coffee. The cistern with the art exhbit was a special treat. .
