Best part of our Greece & Turkey vacation!
How delightful our tour of Ephesus was! This tour was worth having as a private tour, though our ship offered a group tour. Our tour guide was Gonca (Rosie). She was superb! She was very knowledgeable, informing us about everything we saw, and answering all of our questions and giving even small details. She was really a great guide for our boys of 11 & 13 years too. Very kid friendly, finding things they were interested in. She even rearranged our tour at our spontaneous request to skip lunch so that we could see the terrace houses instead due to our limited time! (Do see that!) Since we skipped lunch, she called ahead to the rug site and had a healthy treat waiting for them! She kept us on time, so that we could see what we wanted and get back to our ship on schedule. She also helped us bargain at the rug dealer! Gonca is truly a gem, and https://ephesusbreeze.com is an excellent company! We could not be more pleased! Thank you Gonca! Keep up your excellent work and cheerful attitude! AAA++++ Absolutely a MUST if you visit Ephesus!
Ephesus private tour was well worth the extra expense
After reading all the positive reviews, I hired Ephesus Tours to guide me in Ephesus. I made a smart decision! Taz and a driver picked me up in Izmir, drove me to my hotel in Sirince, and picked me up the next morning for a day full of history, sights, and a bit of shopping. Taz was a great guide, clearly knew his history, and was excited to share his knowledge. He told me about a "side" highlight in Ephesus to see the restoration of apartment dwellings. It was fascinating and highlight of my trip to Ephesus. (I later learned from others who had guided tours during the same time frame that their guides didn't mention the opportunity.). The next day, the driver took me back to the airport in Izmir. Service all around was top notch.
After reading reviews on Trip Advisor, I contacted Mr Teleri to book a tour while we were in Izmir on a cruise stop. What a top of the line operation!! Quick, professional responses to my emails. Picked up on time by a guide and a private van at the cruise terminal. Fantastic, informative tour of Ephesus, House of the Virgin Mary, Terrace Houses, a rug factory and a fabulous lunch. Great value. We were also provided a gift bag and a brochure of other tours offered by this company. Can't wait to book another tour with them soon!!
Enjoyed a wonderful day in the port city of Ephesus. We were fortunate the weather cooperated, sunny and mild. Lots of walking and had an excellent guide. We were staying in Istanbul so it was an all day trip, but affordable. It probably cost my wife and I about $450
Great tour - guide makes all the difference
Our party of 6 really enjoyed our day in Ephesus thanks to our excellent guide, Gonca. I can't say enough about her enthusiasm and knowledge. The day was very well planned out and we saw everything we had requested, Despite my skepticism about the the carpet cultural experience, it was very interesting and one of us did end up buying a rug that she is very pleased with. We had a very nice lunch at a local restaurant, eating Gozleme (Turkish Nomad pancakes), sitting on cushions on the ground - it was like a movie set. Definitely request Gonca - she was excellent!
We just can't stop talking about our wonderful tour!
We had great hopes of seeing some wonderful historical sites, but our tour with Gonca was incredibly fun and memorable! She has trained well as a guide, and her English is excellent. She may be young, but the history she knows is amazing and she shares it in a delightful way, with such excitement and enthusiasm. Gonca also was very considerate of my elderly parents who were along on the tour, helping my mother up and down steps when the occasion called for it -- genuinely kind! She adjusted our tour so that we would see the sites we were interested in, and the luncheon place she took us to was lovely and the food was abundant and fantastic! We had some trepidation about the required rug-weaving demonstration, but it fascinated us with the incredible beauty and detail in this true art-form. Afterwards, she took us to someplace she had always wanted to go, but never had the opportunity: camel wrestling!!! Amazing! Gonca's child-like excitement had us all excited, too! Even though we could enjoy it for only a little while before heading back to the ship, it was truly a not-to-be-missed experience. Gonca shared her love of her native Turkey with us, and we are truly grateful for this highlight of our vacation!
Best day of a 5-week trip!
My family of three adults stopped in Ephesus during the course of a Mediterranean cruise. We had booked with About Ephesus (https://ephesusbreeze.com) based on Tripadvisor reviews, and are very glad we did! We travelled by private car with our private tour guide, Arzu, and had a truly enriching experience.Arzu was our favorite tour guide of our 5-week trip. Her English was always perfectly understandable, she was extremely knowledgeable and, very importantly, she seemed to really enjoy spending time with us. As a licensed tour guide in Turkey, Arzu had taken a full university course in tourism, including extensive history; she is a true professional.Our tour included Ephesus, the Virgin Mary's house, and a Turkish rug factory. Ephesus was an amazing site to visit; it will be forever held in our minds as the one place where we were able to really feel what it might have been like to among the ancients in this beautiful city. The details Arzu provided really brought it to life for us. If we had it to do over again, we would have skipped Mary’s house. We are not religious people, and it was not meaningful to us.The rug factory was very interesting. We had a elicious fresh lunch on the lovely garden patio and then were shown a few things about the spinning, dying, and weaving techniques. We had been planning to buy a rug and we did (2 actually!). If I had this to do over again, I would have studied more about rugs before going so I would have been better prepared to know what I was looking for. That being said, we are very pleased with our purchases.We highly recommend About Ephesus and Arzu!
The best way to see the amazing Ephesus!
We are so happy that we choose About Ephesus (Osman Tourism)! Our cruise ship stopped in Izmir where we met our wonderful guide Canan Tunckanat. Our stops included Ephesus, the Terrace Houses, the Temple of Artemis, and lunch at a carpet shop. Definately pay the extra to stop and the amazingly preserved Terrace Houses. You will not regret it. Canan was a fantastic guide who was very knowledgeable about the area. It was a real delight to speak with her about the history of Ephesus. Don't even consider the cruise ship excursions. You can't beat About Ephesus' prices and the experience of having an attentive personal guide. I highly recommend About Ephesus, Osman Tourism, and Canan.
Wonderful time with Hulya
We booked our tour through Osman Tourism for our day stay during our cruise stop at Kusadasi. Our time with our personal guide, Hulya was wonderful; she was lovely in every respect. She made our visit very special and we felt privileged to have had her all to ourselves. We were treated with the utmost courtesy and her knowledge of the region in general and Ephesus in particular was appreciated by us. The fact that she works as a volunteer on the Terrace Houses project meant we had a special insight into what was going on with that excavation.and restoration. We also loved the lunch in the lovely private outdoor setting with its beautiful food and attentive but discreet service. We often talk about our time with Hulya with fondness and pleasure at the recollection. We were happy with the itinerary and felt safe with our driver and the transport.Terry & Lynda, NZ
Good Service, Good Tour
I spent a couple of hours searching for the Tour company I was going to hire for my tour in Turkey. Sent messages to more than 5 and from all the responses I liked About Ephesus better. Their price was the best for a private tour and their itinerary accommodated some changes i requested. I tried to avoid the Carpet store but in the end agreed to include in the itinerary (it would cost more in case i asked to exclude) and was happy for it. It was very interesting to know and recognize different carpets and techniques used.I was staying in Izmir at the Ibis hotel (standard service and good price) the very well maintained van picked me and my two friends up, took us to Mary's House, Ephesus.Our tour guide Mrs Selda was very knowledgeable, polite, educated in the history of the location and helpful during the whole tour. Totally worth it!
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.”
