We can't say enough in praise of Alex our tour guide, his driver and Curio travel for giving us this memorable journey to ancient Ephesus. Alex was extremely knowledgable about the excavations taking place here and clearly wanted to make sure that we had a pleasant experience.

This tour was extensive and well led by Selda the guide. The highlight was undoubtedly the Terraced Houses which are amazing and not to be missed on any tour of Ephesus. I would have no hesitation in booking with Curio again.
