Ephesus (2 nights)
Beach – including Pamukkale (8 nights)
✈️ UK to Izmir (Selcuk/Ephesus) 2 nights: On arrival in Izmir you’ll be transferred to Selcuk, the gateway to the ancient city of Ephesus. Here you’ll spend two nights exploring this once-thriving Roman city. Wander through the well-preserved ruins, marvel at the grandeur of the Library of Celsus, and stroll along the marble-paved streets, passing by the Great Theatre, one of the largest theatres in the Roman world, once believed to accommodate 25,000 spectators. Here you can climb the seating tiers and get a sense of its impressive scale and architectural ingenuity. You can also visit the Temple of Artemis – one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and located just outside the main Ephesus site.
🚗 Ephesus to Beach (8 nights): Next, you’ll head for some R&R along the Aegean coast, to a beach destination of your choice – for example the vibrant town of Bodrum or the smaller, charming village of Gumusluk. Bodrum offers a lively nightlife, bustling markets and historical sites such as Bodrum Castle. There is a great range of accommodation from luxurious beachfront resorts with private beaches and views of the Aegean Sea to boutique hotels nestled in the heart of Bodrum’s charming Old Town. Gumusluk provides a more relaxed experience with its beautiful beaches and pretty seafood restaurants with twinkling lights and lanterns. Just off the coast of Gumusluk you’ll find Rabbit Island where you can stroll across at low tide and enjoy the scenic views and of course the island’s friendly rabbits.
Your beachside stay includes a day’s excursion to Pamukkale, located next to the ancient city of Hierapolis. Pamukkale, meaning ‘cotton castle’ in Turkish, is famous for its terraces of white mineral-rich thermal waters which cascade down the hillside, formed by the carbonate minerals that are deposited by the flowing water – and which you can walk and take a dip in.
✈️ Bodrum to UK: Your Turkish adventure comes to an end as you board the flight back home to the UK.

From initial contact through web surfing, to personal contact by Hannah, and thereafter Hannah searching for the holiday which we subsequently booked, our experience has been excellent. We needed a reprise of our first long haul holiday from years ago , to best celebrate our upcoming Golden Wedding, and this is what Hannah has sourced. Plainly we have yet to take our holiday, but our experience so far with eShores and particularly Hannah, gives us great confidence. Many thanks. Glynn and Joan BensonPosted 6 days ago
Lynette was so helpful in planning our road trip. She listened to what we wanted and offered suggestions. I don’t think I’ll use anyone else for our holidays. The price for our trip was so competitive as she got us great deals. Definitely a 5* servicePosted 6 days ago

Absolutely perfect. Special thanks to Rachel for arranging our holiday of a lifetime. The whole process from initial enquiry to getting off the plane at the end of our holiday was easy, smooth and straightforward. Our 3 centre holiday included :- flights from London to USA, 3 hotels in different cities, 2 internal flights in the USA and one way car hire. Everything was in place and all timings etc meshed perfectly. The hotels were all located in the areas we wanted to visit minimising additional travel. Rachel was so helpful with her advice and guidance. We will definitely be asking Rachel to arrange our next adventure trip. We can't thank everyone at Eshores enough.Posted 1 week ago
eShores were recommended by a friend. We would normally put together our own itineraries but wanted some help with a South America itinerary. Nick was excellent throughout, with recommendations for slight changes to the itinerary for logistical reasons and great choices of hotels that we would never have found! We were so pleased that we returned to eShores for a South East Asia trip with friends - and were pleased that Nick was responsible for this itinerary too; which we are all very pleased withPosted 1 week ago
Nothing was too much trouble for Kelly from Eshores. Will be using again in the future.Posted 1 week ago
