Our tour with Denizhan was perfect, despite the very scorching heat. Denizhan was very knowledgeable about Ephesus and its history, from the way of life of the people to the materials used in construction of the city. We had a very exciting and interesting experience; he brought to life the stories he told about ancient history. Denizhan was also very accommodating, patient and kind.
