Our tour, Taste of Ephesus, was outstanding. Necdet met us at the pier and we walked to meet our van. During the drive to Selcuk we were given a brief history of the area and Turkey in general. This helped us understand the region better.
Our first stop was at Turkish Pizza, where we tried ayran, a traditional yogurt drink, and two types of pizzas. We then walked through the town to Kokorecci, where we tried a unique food!
Our next stop was the village of Sirince, where we went for a lovely wine tasting. We tried six different wines along with a charcuterie board and some amazing jams. We walked through the village to our next stop where we had traditional Turkish coffee, made in sand!
Our final stop in Sirince was at the restaurant Sirincem , a family run restaurant, where we had lamb kebabs, dolma, and other delicious foods.
We then rode back towards Kusadasi and stopped for Turkish Delight and baklava.
Our tour, and Necdet specifically, was wonderful and gave us a great appreciation of Turkey and Turkish food.
