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.
We loved Ephesus! We did not love stopping at a gold retail outlet on the way out, or having the option of visiting a further site in the afternoon at an extra cost, or stopping at a souvenir shop. Travelling straight to Ephesus, having a leisurely few hours and then returning would've suited us very well.
My wife and I did a private Ephesus tour with a fantastic tour guide, Arzu. We pre arranged everything easily over email prior to our trip and pricing was very reasonable. Because we were staying in Istanbul, we flew to Izmir just for the Ephesus tour in one day. Arzu and a driver (in a very nice new van) picked us up straight from the airport no problem and returned us at the end. The drive to Ephesus was about 50 minutes but went by very quickly as Arzu was extremely knowledgeable and told us so much about the area during our drive. We saw the House of the Virgin Mary, Ephesus ruins, and the temple of artemis prior to stopping for an amazing family style lunch at a local rug/textile school. It was so awesome. I highly recommend bringing an umbrella during the summer because it is quite hot and no shade around Ephesus. Also, we had stopped to purchase a very nice bottle of olive oil, but be warned that the jerks at the Izmir airport wouldn't even let us check it and we had to throw it away :(. Anyways, amazing tour guide and experience!
Ephesus with aboutephesus.com
We arrived at Kusadasi port disembarking our ship Celebrity Silhouette at 11am in the morning, we were a group of nine and were quickly and efficiently met by Cem our guide. The tour of Ephesus was fascinating if extremely hot, we brought umbrellas with us to use as parasols and this was a life-saver. Cem was very knowledgeable and friendly and did not rush us or overload us with information. We visited the terraced houses as well as the amphitheatre and loved our air-conditioned mini bus. We managed to keep one step ahead of our fellow passengers on their cruise-ship booked excursion - more than twice the price and around 25 in the group. We had a good lunch outside and were shown how rugs were made. This was the only part of the tour that was a little uncomfortable as we definitely did not want to buy a turkish rug however beautiful and well made it was. Cem assured us that they did not expect to sell a rug to everyone but it certainly felt like a little bit of hard sell - just be prepared. On returning to the port Cem recommended a watch shop to one of our party, she was very pleased with her purchase. Would highly recommend About Ephesus tours and Cem.

Awesome Tour - Gonca is the best guide!
We were on a cruise and booked a tour of Ephesus for our group of 10. Gonca and Alp were right there to meet us when we got off the ship. Because we were disembarking with 3000 of our closest friends, she suggested that we first see Virgin Mary's house instead of Ephesus. Great call - we got there before the tour bus crowds. Ephesus tour was fantastic as well - very informative but not dry. I had some reservations about the stops at the carpet factory and leather factory, but both were very interesting and low pressure. The included lunch was a highlight of the trip. Gonca's personality really made it a great day.
We had a private guide for our Ephesus tour. We arrived at the port earlier than expected but our guide Cem was there to greet us. He was very knowledgeable and very courteous. It was a hot day and he made sure that we had water and would also offer to take pictures of my husband and I. After he gave us the info for a particular site, he would give us a few minutes alone if we wanted to look around more or take pictures. Cem also made us aware of where the next restrooms would be. Cem, our guide was very happy that we got there a little earlier, because it gave us a chance to beat the crowds. We were very pleased with the lunch provided as well. We would highly recommend this tour.
I would like to book,
Wondering what to see?
Basilica of St. John
The inhabitants of Ephesus moved to Ayasuluk after the 7th century AD, the Basilica of St. John substituted the church in Ephesus, one of the Seven Churches of Revelation.

“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.”
