I just spent 3 days at istanbul and 2 days in Kusadasi at the recommendation of Tours Flame and loved it! I toured Ephesus and Pamukkale and spent a day relaxing on the beach. Kusadasi was so beautiful and it wasn’t too crowded either. It was a nice break from Istanbul and I so wanted to see Ephesus and Pamukkale. Tours Flame arranged everything for me. Everything was so easy and so perfect!
