this is a great tour of history, the best time to go is in April-May or September-October otherwise the weather can be very hot. its an 8 hour tour so you have to be very prepared
Knowledgeable guide, great value
We shopped around several companies but ultimately went with About Ephesus because the value was good. I liked that all the costs (entrance fees, parking fees) are already included in the price so there was nothing unexpected. We were able to also customize the attractions included in our trip but also, while we were touring, our guide and driver allowed us to stop at other attractions that were not previously included in our plan since we still had some time. As a tip, you really must see the Terrace houses. To me, they were the highlight of the tour. Also, you must be willing to walk over slippery and uneven surfaces under direct sunlight for a good few hours. Our guide, Arzu, was top notch. She was very knowledgeable of the area and is very patient and courteous. What was surprising is that we actually enjoyed the lunch that was included. It was in the garden of the carpet warehouse/store (we decided not to opt out of the carpet demo). Everything was fresh and delicious. After a hot day of touring, it was nice sit and enjoy the breeze in the garden. The carpet demo was quite educational. you can see the silkworms, the natural dyes they use, and the process of making it so overall, the carpet demo wasn't bad. They will obviously try hard to sell you later. :)
After reading many positive reviews of aboutephesus.com tours, I booked our private, $80 USD/person tour, just a week before we arrived on the Disney Magic. Arzu was easy to find, and took us on a short walk to board our nice, air conditioned, 15 passenger Mercedes Van. We visited Mary's House, the Ancient Ephesus Ruins, a Weaving Center, the Ephesus Ceramics Center, and Artemis' Temple. Our family's favorite stop was, by far, the ruins of Ephesus. Arzu was so great with my two teenage sons, who started out sleepy and more interested in taking a nap, than learning anything. Arzu was able to bring Ephesus alive through her explanations and stories. She arranged for us to have a private audience with the Master Potter at the Ephesus Ceramics Center. He instructed my 13 year old in throwing a bowl, and allowed me to assist him in creating a ceremonial pouring vessel. At the end of our tour of the Ceramic's Center, there was a bit of awkwardness as we felt pressured to purchase expensive items from the showroom. Realizing that we were not willing to purchase these items, we were shown to a shop with less expensive items, though at checkout, we were approached one last time about purchasing the items that we had admired in the showroom. Our lunch was delicious, and was served at the farmhouse on the grounds of the weaving center. Upon arrival at the port, we were given gift bags, books about Turkey, and maps. This was a lovely touch, and the items are being enjoyed by our entire family! Turkey ended up being one of our favorite ports of call, and Arzu proved to be a great hostess of her country!
Great service and a very professional guide
We were on a family trip to Ephesus last june and we had a great time. Our knowledgeable guide, Mr Halil , from the company https://ephesusbreeze.com, was very professional, he accommodated all our needs and we enjoyed very much our visit. We greatly recommend this Company if you are traveling to Turkey.
We took a Mediterranean Cruise in July 2014 and booked a private tour with About Ephesus about 2 months in advance. Communication by email was prompt, detailed and helpful. To be honest, I wasn't expecting to enjoy our stop in Turkey. My opinion quickly turned around mostly due to this tour and our guide, Arzu. Arzu was waiting for us when we disembarked and she escorted us to our spotless and very air conditioned (yes!) van with driver. Arzu was sweet and informative. Her English was perfect and her enthusiasm for the history of her country was infectious. We saw everything we wanted to see: the Virgin Mary's House, Terrace Houses, Celsus Library, the Grand Theater, St. John's Basilica and more. Turkey has some amazing ancient ruins! We had a full day of sight-seeing and got back to the cruise ship in plenty of time. The day went very smoothly. I can't think of how they could improve. It was perfect.
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.
I would like to book,
Wondering what to see?
Celsus Library is one of the finest buildings in Ephesus. The two-story building contained over 12,000 hand-written books, making it one of the largest library collections of its time.

“We were on a 2-week cruise throughout the Mediterranean and thanks to reading reviews like this one, we decided to book a private tour through Ephesus Breeze. It turned out to be one of our best decisions on the trip and one that I would recommend without any reservation.”
