The Highlights of Ephesus Accessible Guided Tour has a 4 Star Sage Accessibility Rating because it uses a wheelchair accessible van and is entirely step-free. It did not receive a 5 star rating because there is a bit of uneven terrain at the Ephesus ruins. It avoids the long downhill cobblestone-covered road that most tours take which allows it to get a 4 star rating.
