Spent a lovely day with Tijen at the Virgin Mary's house and Ephesus. She was so warm, knowledgeable and sensitive. Everything was fantastic - comfortable car journey from Bodrum and a delicious local lunch. Highly recommended. Thanks so much! We will definitely be booking Tijen again on our next trip to Turkey.
