Denizhan was an excellent tour guide in Ephesus. He was very knowlegable and explained everything to us. He was also very caring as one of our party was not very good at walking so he did the tour at our pace which was very enjoyable. We also had a lovely driver who also was pleasant and helpful. The whole tour was comfortable and enjoyable. Thankyou
