Reviews from previous customers..
We recently traveled to Greece and Turkey with a group of 28 from our wine club in California. My husband had researched several tour companies because we did not want to participate on the gigantic excursion groups offered through our cruise. How lucky we were to spend the day with Goncha, our delightful and extremely knowledgeable guide. She has an effervescent personality and exudes pride as she shares her knowledge and love of her country, Turkey. She planned a perfect day for our group of 16 and created one of the most memorable days of our trip.We all wanted to adopt her but perhaps her husband might object. We loved her and our special day in Ephesus.
This was an awesome tour. I read about them on Cruise Critic and then booked a one day private tour. This company was very responsive from the first email. Go to 'https://ephesusbreeze.com'' and contact them if you are going to Izmir ! Our tour guide Hilya was wonderful. She was knowledgeable and understanding of our needs. It was tailored to what we wanted to do and where we wanted to go. The cost was well worth it in comparison to shore excursions from the cruise ship.
Superb Tour of Ephesus
We followed the high ratings of the one-day tour of Ephesus with Ephesus Tours and it was the highlight of our entire cruise. Our guide Ayca was extremely knowledgeable, articulate and helpful. Her English was excellent and she was able to communicate both the grand sweep of history and fascinating details about what we were seeing. (We didn't burden her with the knowledge but 6 of the ten of us were professors with considerable knowledge of the Biblical background though not of the site) Her knowledge of the Biblical background was quite extensive and her grasp of archaeology excellent. We recommend it enthusiastically and without reservation..
A great day at Ephesus with a personal guide
We spent a full day visiting Ephesus with Arzu, one of the professional guides of https://ephesusbreeze.com. She was excellent and we learned much more about the site than we would ever have done on our own. She provided us with much information and many stories that brought the site to life. She also provided a lovely lunch, told us about her own wedding arrangements and taught us some basic Turkish! A great experience! And Ephesus is not to be missed.Take our advice and stay overnight in Selcuk rather than Kusadasi or Izmir.And brush up on your knowledge of Greek and Roman Gods.
It's Simply a Must-See!
It reminded us of our time in Pompeii and Herculaneum. Of course it was different, but it's another archeological must-see, if you are within striking distance. Impressive. Not too much walking, but enough. Stalls at entrance/exit sell everything at reasonable prices.
Great experience with About Ephesus Tours
Booked a private Ephesus tour with Osman Tourism (https://ephesusbreeze.com) based on their glowing reviews on tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed. Our tour guide, Gurkan, was pleasant, professional and very knowledgeable. There wasn't a single question that we asked that he didn't know the answer for. We're generally very curious about the various countries and cultures that we experience and we felt that Gurkan was willing to discuss not only about past history, but also about present-day life in Turkey. Our program also included lunch at and a tour of a local Turkish carpet workshop. We didn't expect much from this portion of our visit, as these kinds of stops usually translate into high pressure sales pitches and not much else. Again, we were pleasantly surprised. The setting was gorgeous, the food delicious and the actual tour quite interesting. Would use About Ephesus Tours and Osman Tourism again in a heartbeat.
THE BEST Way To See Ephesus In A Day
Incredible tour!!! Our dad booked this tour through the Cruise ship we were on. We had a group of 7 family members and this was the EASIEST, most FUN and valuable way to see everything we wanted to see in just a day. Our tour guide, Gonca, was so incredibly hospitable, knowledgeable and professional. We were able to see many sites, choose the ones we wanted and still feel relaxed and not rushed. It was catered to how we wanted it to go. The tour was not only about sight seeing but an interesting historical and cultural education. The lunch was lovely and I have incredible photos of us at the ruins. This has made us only want to do private tours from now on. We had our own very nice private, air conditioned van with driver. The transitions were so smooth and effortless. The tickets were purchased in advanced for us and it was just a breeze. Memories were made forever!
Coming off of our ship, Gonca Dasdemir met us right on time with a smile and a spotless van with an excellent driver. With an impressive command of English she was well versed in the phenomenal history of the area...the incredible sites in Ephesus, Mary's Chapel and a wonderful al fresco lunch followed by a trip to an educational center where we saw how Turkish rugs are made. This was followed by an opportunity to purchase some exquisite rugs. When back in the area we will always book with Ephesus Tours and always ask for Gonca. She is an exceptional ambassador for her country. The tour company was very easy to deal with but Gonca's ability to impart information and share the love for her subject made this a wonderful day!
Another Great Review
Hard to add much to the many great reviews...but here are a few points. My wife wasn't feeling well the day of the tour and with this private tour we were able to still see all the sights we wanted to and were well taken care of the entire way. Our guide O.J. was AWESOME! I would ask for her again by name upon any return trip to the area. I would use the company About Ephesus Tours again no problem.
A little bit of history to take your breath away
We took a trip to see Ephesus and were not disappointed. Our friends had been there some 14 years ago and they noticed a massive change since then with the opening up of previously buried structures. We had a super guide called Sam (his real name was Sherkru) who coincidentally was the same guide our friends had before, his spoken English and knowledge of Ephesus are second to none. Tip for anyone visiting - strong shoes are best for uneven surfaces and take plenty of water to drink as there are no facilities of any kind while you are seeing the ruins. There is little respite from the sun so best to be prepared. If we visit Turkey again we'll definitely go to see Ephesus once more to find out more of the history of the place and observe how much more of the ruins have been uncovered.
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
“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.”
