Absolutely amazing place to visit. It is a must see for anyone travelling to Turkey. Enjoyed every minute there.
Mind blowing !
I was going to miss this excursion I am so glad I didn't. It was one of the best things I saw on my cruise. I advice you read up on things before you go. Our guide was good but we missed a few things. There are guys asking to take your pictures try it ours turned out amazing for 3 Euros each. It is blazing hot make sure you slather sunscreen on everyone and use the bathroom before you enter. Also once inside there are no stalls to purchase drinks and such and believe me you will need a cold drink to walk with in the summer. There are toilets on the way out. Take lots of pictures and enjoy.
Great tour of Ephesus!
Our tour guide Bogra, a native of Turkey was great. Perfect English and has a degree in Religion and knew a lot more about Christianity and the Bible than I did (even for a Catholic of 50+ years). Ruins of Ephesus were amazing - a fair amount of walking over uneven surfaces - not too bad, just continue to look down as you walk across the marble stones as there can be large holes that are not marked and you can twist an ankle.We stopped first at the House of Mary. Interesting, and a beautiful area, but it's a small chapel with a lot of tourists coming through in buses. The accommodations - separate driver and large Mercedes travel bus were first rate. The tour has an obligatory stop at Turkmen's rug shop, where you eat a nice lunch. The demonstration was actually really interesting, they then put you in a private room and show some absolutely beautiful rugs. The operation is subsidized by the Turkish government, so the sales pressure isn't bad at all. A bit strange though as most of the rug are well north of $2,000 USD, out of the reach of most tourists one would think? If they had some more affordable wool ones - perhaps smaller I think they would sell a lot more. This is a very modern place that is very nice, not a smokey/divy bazarre where they pressure and hound you.I checked "fee for this attraction" but the fees to the ruins and even the optional Terrace houses are all included.Great tour, highly recommended and perfectly timed!
Fantastic Private Tour
We were on the Royal Carribean but decded to do a private tour of Ephesus with Atilla Demir. We had a huge van waiting for our family of 4 at the port exit gate .Atilla was a fantastic guide throughout our tour, very knowledgeable, cooperative, piunctual and polite. The vegetarian meal we had requested for was also arranged accordingly and was delicious. In all he made our tour very enjoyable and comfortable. Would definitely recommend him.
We stopped in Ephesus on our Royal Caribbean tour. I decided to book a tour for my husband and I without going through the excursion on the cruise. So happy we did! We had a private tour with an amazing guide who was extremely knowledgeable! We had a private van that took us to the ruins, a place where they make turkish rugs (where lunch was included), then we went to a leather store and made some purse and belt purchases! It was so interesting, so glad we booked it! Great experience!!!!
We were on a cruise and we booked the tour before we left home. There are not enough adjectives to describe how wonderful and memorable the tour and entire day was. We were picked up on time at the dock and left on time for our tour. We met our guide Nafia at the gate of the port and she was punctual, professional and smart. We had a very comfortable and spacious Mercedes Van just for the two of us drive by Umit. We were given so much wonderful information on what we were going to see and what we were seeing along the drive to Ephesus. So much history. Our itinerary was one day Biblical Tour visiting the House of Virgin Mary, Ephesus Ancient City, St. John's Basilica, the Temple of Artemis and The Seven Sleeper’s Cave. Lunch at a small country restaurant was included and it was delicious!The tour of Ephesus itself was unbelievable. Our guide and driver were so knowledgeable and easy to understand. It was easy to ask questions and get answers from them. Thank you Nafia and Umit for a terrific day!If we get to the area again, we will definitely book with Osman Tourism again. We highly recommend this company.
The tour of the amazing and historical sites of Ephesus are not to be missed. We were met at the cruise port and made the short drive to Ephesus. The Temples and Ancient City are filled with so much history. The House of the Virgin Mary was an amazing highlight. We enjoyed a delicious Turkish lunch at the School of Carpet making overlooking a garden setting. After lunch, we were given a tour of how the carpets are hand-made. We weren't in the market to purchase a carpet, but enjoyed the setting. Our guide, Ugur, was very knowledgeable and provided a thoroughly detailed tour of the ancient ruins. If you are interested in an abundance of historical facts, he would be ideal. We enjoyed our visit to Ephesus and would recommend visiting the sites.
Wonderful, Moving Ephesus Tour
Since we were on a cruise,my husband and I decided to take a private tour with driver of Ephesus since we had limited time. This was an excellent decision. We were met at the port at 7:30 AM, so we could beat the crowds. Our guide Gonca had a complete knowledge of the history and sights.Since we left so early, we were the only people at The House of the Virgin Mary making it a extremely moving experience. We also were early enough to beat the crowds at The Temple of Artemis and the Ancient City of Ephesus. We enjoyed a carpet demonstration and ceramic demonstration without any pressure to buy. We had a delicious lunch at an open air restaurant. This was all included in our tour fee. We would highly recommend About Ephesus tours.
Our About Ephesus Tours was the best
Our tour of Ephesus was the highlight of our cruise. We shared a private tour with another couple who made all the arrangements before we left home. This way we were able to customize where we wanted to go. We explained we had no interest in visiting a carpet demonstration since our time in Ephesus was limited and we would rather spend the time seeing the Terrace Houses. It worked out perfectly. Our guide, Koray, was a wealth of knowledge and very helpful. We had lunch at a delicious open-air restaurant and it was delightful to have a chance to talk to Koray about what life is like in Turkey in 2015 and not 2,000 years ago:-) I accidentally left my eye glasses in the van but didn't realize it until we had boarded our ship. I emailed About Ephesus Tours and explained my problem. I got a quick response back that my glasses had been found on the van and that they would mail them to me at home which is exactly what happened. Do not hesitate to use this company. They are very professional and easy to work with and do what they promise.
1/2 day tour to Ephesus was a highlight for us.
Jem from About Ephesus Tours picked us up at the cruise pier at 8:30 a.m. He was so knowledgeable about the area and the things we had wanted to see. Our tour consisted of seeing the ancient city of Ephesus, the terrace houses - which were amazing, and then seeing how silk carpets were made. That was very interesting and there was no pressure to buy anything. We also had a traditional lunch in a garden area. The 1/2 day was wonderful and one of the highlights of our cruise.
I would like to book,
Wondering what to see?
Celsus Library is one of the finest buildings in Ephesus. The two-story building contained over 12,000 hand-written books, making it one of the largest library collections of its time.
