Make sure you have correct footwear.. non slippy soles are the best.. Walking on uneven slippy surfaces of marble and granite. Hot, hot, hot and no shade, so be prepared with lots of sunscreen and hat and take a fan to keep you cool. Lots to see of historical interest.. Walking in Alexander the Great footsteps.Extremely interesting.. Our guide was so informative and enthusiastic. A fabulous day out..
Temple of Artemis was beautiful. Ephesus is also the site of a large gladiators' graveyard. The most amazing is the Library of Celsus founded in 10th century BC It is Still standing, incredible.
GREAT PRIVATE TOUR OF EPHESUS WITH GUIDE ARZU ALTUN
Arzu is an incredibly knowledgeable guide who answered our many questions about Ephesus and went out of her way to make our one-day tour a highlight of our trip to Turkey. My husband and I were picked up at Bodrum, driven by air-conditioned van to Ephesus where we saw Ephesus, the Virgin Mary's house, and went to a restaurant for lunch where we saw a demonstration of Turkish carpet weaving. The driver was very professional, the van spotless, and Arzu was a delight to talk to. It was a very hot day (mid-July) and Arzu even had water bottles ready for us. We spent 2 1/2 hours touring the site and were it not for the heat, would have stayed longer. Booking the tour was easy, communication was effortless. We highly recommend the tour company and Arzu.
We met five others on cruise critic and one of our group organized this tour with About Ephesus. We met on the ship and they were waiting for us at the exact stated time. The van was lovely and comments by the guide were excellent. When we arrived at the site the tour was extensive. We opted to go to the Terrace Houses, which were excellent to see though be prepared for many steps...a big climb both going up and the path, staircase back down was steep also. On the way back we stopped at their office to pay and where they gave us a book about the site and a box of turkish candy. We also used the restrooms there. Skipping the stores and returning back to the port after the tour gave us time to snack and shop at the port. Headphones would have been a good addition but with such a small group it was boarder line whether they were necessary.
Lots of impressions
It is a must be place in the nearby. Ancient Ephesus city is preserved very well. The only minus is that if you order a group excursion (60 USD per person) they take you to the shops where I personally didn`t want to go at all.
Ephesus is an amazing site and it is one of the most impressive ruins that we've visited. The library is breathtaking. Expect the uneven walking surface, the crowds and the heat if you visit in the summer and be prepared. We carried an insulated backpack with water and sunscreen and we were fine. We wanted to spend a lot more time there, but were on a tour and had to depart with our guide. It's one of the few ruins that we hope to return to.
Visit to Ephesus by Ephesus Tours
An excellent tour. We took a private tour; just my wife and myself. The Guide Tour Gonca was really wonderful and everything was explained and carefully; At lunchtime we had a choice of three restaurants and we chose a typical Turkish restaurant; this was also a good choice. All in all there was nothing to complain about; quite the opposite. Thank you for Gonca and for the company, A very professional tour. The lunch was included with the price and we were given a gift box also.Michael & Minka
About Ephesus Tour was an amazing experience
I booked my tour with Mr. Istemihan Teleri from the About Ephesus Team (Osman Tourism PLC). He answered all my questions via e-mail and provided all the information related to the tour in advanced. The tour guide's name is Istemihan Teleri. She was amazing!!!!!. I recommend her. My 13 year old son enjoyed listening to her stories. Transportation with air conditioning was perfect! We visited Mary's house, Izmir ruins, traditional lunch, carpet store and then back to the vessel. I almost forgot, they give you a party bag with souvenirs and tourist guide and information related to other touristic sites of Turkey. highly recommend this company.
Ephesus was the highlight of our cruise
We booked our own guided tour with Mr Istemihan Teleri of About Ephesus Tours 3 months before our cruise. We were met at Kusadasi on time and prior to this the arrival point in Turkey was to be Izmir. Not a problem to this tour company and without being prompted they had reduced the tour cost by US$5 because of the shorter distance to travel to Ephesus. Friens who had been before said that Ephesus was not be missed and how right they were. What an amazing place, particularly the Terrace Houses which were being worked on by archeological students. A lot of the excellence of this tour can be put firmly in the hands of our delightful tour guide Goncha whom we highly recommend as being well informed and who speaks very good English and has a ton of personality. We spent a good 3 hours here and it was eye opening and from our point of view a step up on other ruins we had seen such as Pompeii. After leaving Ephesus we went to a delightful little town Sirinice where we had a lovely typical Turkish lunch including refreshments. We then had a walk around this little town and bought some table mats and turkish delight before heading off to Rossini Leather in Selcurk. We had no intention of any of us, there were 6 of us, buying leather jackets but thanks to the private viewing, and the high quality of the leather goods available, we ended up purchasing 5 jackets between us at prices that we bargained heavily for and were happy to pay at the end. We have since found since coming home that they are well worth what we had paid for them and would cost considerably more for jackets of lesser quality. As a result of our wallets being lightened we needless to say did not purchase any turkish rugs at the next stop, and I must say, contraryu to what we had read that there was no pressure placed on us to buy. Overall the tour was extremely enjoyable and value for money and we had a brilliant day out, thanks very much to Goncha. About Ephesus is highly recommended to other people who are considering a tour to Ephesus.

Wondering what to see?

Testimonials & Reviews
“Eight of us on 12 night Mediterranean cruise arranged a tour through Ephesus Tours and were fortunate enough to be met at the cruise terminal by Gonca Kizilhan, a.k.a. Rosie, the most wonderful tour guide in all of Turkey! She was so knowledgeable, was able to answer any question asked of her and had the most pleasant personality.”
