Levent Soysal was very knowledgeable of the history of Ephesus and Turkey as a country. Learned a lot. Would recommend this tour to anyone with Levent as a guy and Bulent as a driver. We were very well taken care of.

Same shops, mall and shopping that you can find anywhere in the World. Do you need to come Istanbul to buy Gap, Nike or Benetton?

Around the Levent metro station, there are shopping malls with food courts and the money exchange shop in the basement of the shopping mall. The area is convenient for the tourist and easy to access to tourists spots.

Levent is a wonderful part of Istanbul. There are a lot of skyscrapers, shops, malls, hotels, but it is very crowded in the evening. Don't go there by car in the evening ! The best way to reach Levent is by underground for sure.
