Great Tour Company
This company is very good and I would highly recommend them. Top notch from inquiry to tour. We had Gorca as a guide and she was incredible. Very knowledgeable on all aspects and perfect English.
Wow !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the best way to see Turkey.
Your company is professional, courteous and Gonca is delightful. Gonca Kililhan: she made our tour an exciting experience. Thank you very much for the wonderful and informative tour. We cannot come up with the right words that describe our experience in Turkey.Also thank you and the driver and all of the other people that helped me to get myPrescription glasses back on time for us to catch our cruise which was leaving at 4:30I think from my first phone call to the time the driver came by where you met meIt was maybe 25 minutes………..outstanding service and commitment from all. OSMAN TURIZM – the only way to travel in Turkey !!!!! We will tell anyone who wishes to travel to your beautiful country. Take care Gonca from all the 4 of us, it was a great pleasure to meet you.Warren and Maureen with Barb and Joe.
This is the one!
If you are looking for an excellent informative Ephesus tour that will pick you up at the port and bring you back ON TIME, this is it! Booking the tour was a breeze, prices were fantastic, especially if you are able to gather a couple of families together to make your own private group. We were traveling with friends and had NINETEEN children in our group.That did not phase Gonca, our beautiful tour guide! She was interactive with children, very easy to understand and VERY patient. She went at our pace and still was able to share a ton of her knowledge about Ephesus with us. Do NOT forget to pick up your passports from the cruise ship before you disembark as you will need them for buying children's passports. Also, because we knew we had to be back at the boat at a certain time, our "obligatory" leather goods stop was cut to a minimum (beautiful leather coats, by the way). Definitely recommend this company!
One of our best ever private tours
This was an exceptional private tour of Ephesus and our guide Levant has to be one of the best around. He told us everything we wanted to know and more. He was so very patient and more or less allowed us to dictate the pace. Ephesus is quite magnificent and is steeped in history. Do include a trip to the Terrace Houses as they are well worth the visit. Our venue for lunch in the countryside was rather lovely and the food we were given was excellent. This was followed by a carpet demonstration at the same location and although we were not very keen to include this on our itinerary we changed our minds after seeing the work that goes into making these very fine rugs. I believe we might well have bought one had we been prepared in advance. We may therefore have to return! Thank you once again Levant for a wonderful day and also to Adam and everyone at Samyeli Travel.
Osman Tourism - Gonca
We booked the tour online before we left for our cruise, Gonca met us as planned at 8.30am at the port gate in Kusadasi, and the 2 of us were taken by mini bus to Ephesus by the driver Alp. Gonca was very friendly and informative, she said we would be better visiting the terrace house inside Ephesus instead of Marys house and I am so glad we didn't miss this part of it as it was the best part. If you go make sure you do not miss it out. We were there before all the coach parties which meant we were able to see everything really well. The lunch we chose to go to a traditional restaurant with more choice and it was superb Turkish food. We didn't go to any of the carpet weaving etc and asked to be dropped off at the beach on the way back which was no problem to them. Would definitely recommend this tour.
Awesome Tour, Awesome tour guide!
We weren't sure what to expect since this was our first private tour off a cruise ship which we booked on our own after some research. We could not be more pleased. This was one of the highlights of our trip and it was clear from the start that we would be very happy. We were met by our tour guide Hulya Acar as we disembarked from the cruise ship and then met our driver to make our way to Ephesus. The drive was beautiful in the Mercedes van which was very comfortable. Hulya was very knowledgable and we were very comfortable with her immediately. We spent several hours touring the sites (including the house of the Virgin Mary and then Ephesus. The arranged lunch was delicious and we opted for the more traditional lunch. We also visited the carpet making but that was optional and there was no pressure to attend it which was appreciated. Overall this was a very worthwhile tour and more than worth the cost. In fact we were very impressed with what we did receive for the money paid. I highly recommend this tour company and our tour guide in particular.
This was by far the best tour we did - the guide was so knowledgable and being a history geek I loved this amazing piece of history - being able to walk a long the streets and so much still in tact is impressive!
Ephesus Private Tour with Mehmet Gokbora
I would like to say how much my husband and I enjoyed our recent private tour of Ephesus with our professional tourist guide, Mehmet Gokbora. He was waiting to greet us, along with a driver and a brand new 6 seater mini bus which we had to ourselves, when we disembarked from our cruise ship. The tour of Ephesus was fascinating and Mehmet's knowledge first class. He always managed to miss the worst of the crowds which made the day all the more enjoyable. We shared a delightful traditional Turkish lunch with him, before visiting the Ephesus Ceramic Centre and purchasing a beautiful hand thrown and painted bowl, which was safely wrapped and survived the flights home. His little gift bag was an additional treat.
Very knowledgeable guide, terrific day trip
Booked a tour for just the two of us rather than join our cruise ship tour. Ali was our friendly, extremely knowledgeable guide who was also very flexible with the itinerary - we often got to venues before the large coach parties or, if necessary, we swapped the running order around to try to avoid the crowds. The City of Ephesus was amazing and Ali really brought it to life for us. We would have missed out on a lot if we had tried to do this tour alone. The air conditioned minivan was a joy in such searing heat and driver comes to meet you so you aren't walking back miles to where he dropped you off. Wear comfy shoes with decent tread because the marble steps can be slippy, wear a sunhat and sunscreen because there is very little shade and take water! The tour also includes lunch which was delicious. The price was probably a shade cheaper than the cruise ship tour price but it was fantastic to get such a personal service. It was a memorable day for all the right reasons.
Great Tour Operator
I booked a private day trip with Ephesus Tours after I read the high reviews on TripAdvisor, and I am glad to say I was not disappointed. Gonza was there to meet us at the airport, and was very flexible as we ended up changing the day's plan. Gonza was superb, and patient with our family of 9 :)
I would like to book,
Wondering what to see?
The Terrace houses
The houses built on the terraces on the slopes of Mount Koressos were inhabited by the wealthy families of the city. The first houses are dated to the 1st century AD and they had been used with some renovations until the city was abandoned.
Testimonials & Reviews
“Wishing to avoid the high costs charged by a cruise line for a visit to the ancient sites of Ephesus and having read previous Trip Advisor reviews, we e-mailed Ephesus Tours to arrange a private tour. Met us exactly as promised on arrival and the guide that they provided us was excellent with fluent English.”
