Ephesus - the place we hear of in Bible stories
I never did pay much attention to the sermons and readings during mass days. However, if you remember St. Paul and his letters to the Ephesians - this is where these ancients lived! You can walk along the mosaic streets through this marvelous site and imagine the shops and cafes. It is a living museum in that if you take the time to sit, contemplate and imagine you can "feel" the spirit of the ancients right beside you. An excellent visit - get a good guide to point out the main sights and explain the history.
aboutephesus.com for the win!
There were so many offering Ephesus tours but we were very happy to have picked the right one. We were met promptly by Ali of aboutephesus.com at the Kusadasi Port where our cruise ship was docked. We booked the Temple of Artemis, House of Virgin Mary, St. John Basilica and Ancient City of Ephesus tour. Ali was very informative and accommodating. We learned a lot from him. We wanted to skip the ceramic factory tour and it was no problem with him. Lunch was also good. Thank you Ali for showing us how beautiful Ephesus is :)
We were collected from the airport at Izmir by our tour guide Arzu Altun for a private 1/2 day tour of Ephesus. She was very knowledgable and spoke excellent English. She made our tour of Ephesus very enjoyable with the knowledge that she shared with us. We really enjoyed talking to her about Turkish life in general. We were dropped back at our hotel in Izmir after the tour. A very professional guide and company.We would highly recommend Arzu and About Ephesus tours.
A fantastic tour booked through https://ephesusbreeze.com. We were on a cruise ship and elected to book this private tour. It was cheaper and better than booking the cruise line on shore excursion. My wife and I were escorted by Hulya who was as knowledgeable as she was beautiful. We went to the house of Mary and the ruins of Ephesus. The tour included lunch and carpet making demonstration along with explanation and demonstration on how silk is obtained and the dying process of wool. We also visited a leather shop and were treated to a full on fashion show with beautiful models displaying men's and women's leather jackets. Great to have a private tour away from the normal full bus load of cruise ship passengers. Thoroughly recommended.
We booked through About Ephesus and had an enjoyable tour. It was cheaper the the cruise ship and we got to see exactly what we wanted. The guide did not know English as well as I would like but we muddled through and read the signs. I would probably try someone else if we did it again.
About Ephesus day tour from Izmir
We were met by Arzu, our guide, at our hotel in Izmir punctually at 8 AM. The Mercedes Van was very comfortable. The driver was very experienced. So the drive was pleasant. We first went to the house of Mary, then to Ephesus. Arzu has excellent knowledge of the history of Ephesus and surrounding area, is always cheerful, and was ready to answer any questions we had. I and my wife are vegetarians and were treated to a very delicious lunch. Overall, we had an excellent time. Arzu, besides being a good guide, was an excellent companion.Ramesh and Mithilesh Chandra
Review of our Ephesus guided tour
I would like to highly recommend Ephesus Tours (About Ephesus Tours) an agency that we discovered through TripAdvisor due to their excellent ratings. We couldn't have been more delighted with our tour guide for the day, Gonca. She was a young energetic ambassador for Turkey. We were highly impressed with her in depth knowledge of Turkish history as well of all the sites that we saw while we were with her. The tour was very well organized, the large mini-van was very roomy and comfortable. It was a wonderful day that we will always remember.
The Gold Star of Roman Ruins!
I went on a cruise last week and one of the ports of call was Izmir. I had heard many wonderful reports of how spectacular Ephesus was but it wasn't until I visited it myself that I saw it in all its glory and what a spectacular sight. This is not just a collection of ruins but a whole city! The tour was brought to life by a wonderful local guide who brought to life an ancient civilisation. I highly recommend this tour if you are staying in the area or are on a cruise which stops at either Kusadasi or Izmir. In April the temperature was warm and pleasant. If you are visiting in the summer, hats, sunscreen and water are a must!
Undeniable History that brings legends to life
The "1000 places you must see before you die" book I have, lists the Library at Ephesus as one such place. Now having visited this superb historical site I can not imagine why the whole Ephesus site is not on the list. You could spend a week at this site putting together pieces of Greek mythology, biblical history, roman civilisation, politics, town planning and civil and civic engineering like a giant historical jigsaw puzzle. This place is awesome. It is extremely exposed weather wise, so yes hat, sunscreen, water, raincoat all essentials according to the weather forecast for your visit. I also suggest getting a reputable guide as this place is easily four volumes of information. We used Ephesus Breeze booked from Istanbul. Highly recommended..
Fantastic Ephesus tour with Gul (Rose) from About Ephesus Tours
We just completed a full-day tour of Ephesus booked through About Ephesus Tours and had the privilege of being guided by Gul (Rose) Demir. Rose is a very knowledgeable, energetic, interesting and flexible tour guide. She was waiting for us as soon as we disembarked from our cruise ship and she gave us a detailed tour of ancient Ephesus (including the Terrace Houses), House of the Virgin Mary, Basilica of St. John, and the Temple of Artemis. In addition, she gladly added in a tour of the restored Isabey Mosque near the Basilica of St. John's (at my wife's request). The traditional lunch included with the tour was fantastic, and she graciously honored our request to skip the usual rug-making/sales-pitch stop. We even got a fantastic thank-you gift bag that included a book of the sites we had just visited as well as a Turkish scarf and some other traditional Turkish items. The booking process through About Ephesus Tours was smooth and efficient and we give Rose (Gul) and About Ephesus Tours our highest recommendation. It was the best private shore excursion that we have ever done (and the first one that impressed us enough to write a Trip Advisor review)! Dean & Suzann S.
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.”
