Best day of our meditteranean cruise
Our cruise was selected by the fact that we wanted to visit Ephesus. We were a group of 4 adults and the highlight of our cruise was to be our stop in Kusadasi with a visit to Ephesus. Little did we know that our trip would be made even better than we ever imagined by our special tour guide Gonca. She met us at the port in a Mercedes van and off we went on a spectacular day. We visited the House of Mary and everything possible in Ephesus. It is a day that we will never forget and a day that will keep us in forever awe of the courage and sacrifices that the Christians made during Pauls visit to Ephesus. There was not one part of the tour that could have been better or that we would have changed after being there. This is the best value tour we had during our entire cruise and one that you will regret taking if you don't book. I highly recommend asking for Gonca if you want a pleasant, very informative tour guide that you will leave as good friends when the visit is over. Gonca even took the time to take us to a local store to buy some clothes for two of the people on our tour who did not get their luggage when they arrived in Turkey. Gonca and Osman Tourism are a big 5 star WOW.
Arzu was great
We had a great day. She is very knowledgable. The lunch adjacent to the carpet place was great. Arzu was generous with her time but of course got us to our boat on time. Thanks!
An incredible Experience
Ephesus is one of the most beautiful and well maintained sites I have visited in more than 40 years of travel. The library facade is breathtaking and to stroll an area where our Christian disciples lived, preached and suffered for our faith is touching indeed.
Well maintained place
Appreciate the turkish authorities taking efforts in maintaining the historical treasure. The place was clean but crowded in the early hours.
Ephesus tour with Osman Tourism's Julia & "About Ephesus"
We did a tour with Julia in Ephesus and it was fantastic She called me on the phone and I did not actually realize that she was going to be our guide until we got there and met her at the port. She was there with a board with our name on it, and she took very good care of us. We LOVED Ephesus and Mary's House. She also took us to a marvelous lunch and even had a special cake for our girls' sweet 16 birthday. The lunch was spectacular and held lots of very fun unexpected things, and we learned a lot about rug making as we got a demonstration. The only thing that I would mention is that the rug demo got a bit long, and they were really trying to sell us rugs. I had no idea that we were going to see this type of demo, and I wasn't prepared to buy rugs. We asked her to take us to a leather shop, and she brought us to a nice one where we were able to find some things, but we found more after we were dropped off near the port. Leather is big there, so keep that in mind when you go. She was a very informed guide, and we absolutely loved the experience. I would highly recommend this tour - especially if you can get Julia.
Poor English Skills (Gul Demir)
Unfortunately, our tour with Gul Demir of Osman Turkzim (Ephreus tours) was the worst tour on a one-month trip. The main concern was her lack of fluency in English. She would regularly say the wrong word such as wheelchair (vs chariot), bat house (vs bath house), sheep (vs ship) and after a while it became challenging to be interested in listening to her. My recommendation is to ask to speak with the actual tour guide you are booking - at the Ephesus ruins it felt like most other tour guides spoke superior English and had an overall better presentation.Also, we took about 15 different tours on our trip and she did more on tour texting and cell phones calls than all of the other tour guides combined.Finally, be prepared to be on a tour that takes you to a rug factory which will involve you needing to say no a number of times to avoid purchasing a rug etc. (this may be a feature of most Ephesus tours)The driver did an excellent job. Our tour guide was friendly but it certainly did not make up for the other issues. This tour occurred on August 5, 2014.

PRIVATE TOUR OF EPHESUS WITH TOUR GUIDE, Koray
Dave booked a private tour of Ephesus with Koray, with About Tours. He was to knowledgeable on the history of Ephesus which made the trip very educational and interesting. Koray also took us to others areas that we would not have know about. We enjoyed a luncheon at a wonderful cafe at a country side co-op where the local people made carpets and other had made crafts. We would not have know about these areas had we not had Koray as our guide. We hope to return to Turkey in 2017 and hire him as our guide to show us more of the beautiful country.Gerri Hayden & Dave Barrett
Unforgettable Tour of Ephesus
We cannot say enough about our memorable day in Ephesus! We booked a private whole day tour of Ephesus and had the most fantastic guide who was so knowledgable, educated, and spoke perfect English. In addition to this, he grew up in Ephesus playing in the ruins. He has a passion for this wonderful historical place and shared it with us for an entire day. We would not hesitate in recommending this company and tour and will use them again when visiting Turkey in the future. Enjoy this wonderful place!
we went there on a very hot summers day, but it was worth it, a very interesting site. it is a large site with many buildings, there is a Roman road still in the main city of Ephesus which leads to a beautiful building,which once was the librery. There are many relics around the area. take some food for the cats there are many there.
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.
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.”
