Aphrodisias in the best most amazing site I visited in Turkey, even better than Ephesus. It was quite spread out and had a nice theater, bath, several temples, a Sebastian, and the only oval stadium I saw in Turkey. It was a school for artists, and the statues, friezes on the Sebastian, masques on the theater and other art were beautiful. Much of it was housed in a nice museum on site. I don't know why more people don't visit Aphrodisias -- it was one of the highlights of my trip in Turkey. Laodicea was an important banking center that is undergoing extensive restoration. it was breathtaking to look across a wide valley to see the white terraces of Pammukale spilling down the mountain and see the remains of an extensive water system that brought water from Pammukale/Hieropolis across the valley to Laodicea. The lunch stop couldn't have been better, and it was a fabulous tour.

Thoughts:
a you'll learn more from 1hrs research on the internet than from the guide
b why run the trip on a monday when the museum is closed... one of the finest collections of ancient sculpture/statuary anywhere and you cant get in to see it! very annoying
That said the sites were brilliant and more than made up for a and b above, coupled with nice people on the trip and a good lunch. Martin Edinburgh
