    My friends and I did this tour on July 2022 and it was perfect! We were able to swim in the hot springs and visit the ruins of Pamukkale and Ephesus. The guides were so experienced and friendly. The lunches we had was amazing and included lots of vegetarian options. I would highly recommend this tour.
