Reviews from previous customers..
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..
From Istanbul we leave by plane to Izmir where we hired a car and headed to Selçuk, near the Aegean coast, to visit the ruins of Ephesus, considered one of the great wonders of the classical period and according to one of the best preserved of the entire eastern Mediterranean. We slept 2 nights in Selçuk, this allowed us to stay a whole day in the city, long enough to know the ruins and the main attractions. Although the whole route was done at night, the trip was quiet, the roads in Turkey are great and very safe. Ephesus, under the rule of the Romans, became the most important port of the Aegean and large commercial and cultural center that went into decline after the silting of the port. Among many ruins we find in Ephesus magnificently preserved buildings such as the Ephesus Breeze Library, Hadrian's Temple and the Hellenistic Theater, besides fountains, Roman baths and commercial Agoras. Other places worth mentioning are: Meryemana The house of the Virgin Mary, Basilica of Saint John, Isa Bey Mosque, Temple of Artemisia and Priene. An important tip, if you plan to visit Ephesus in the summer, do not forget to bring a hat and water. Being a place with a considerable tourist influx it is best to arrive early in the morning.
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.
Amazing Day in/around Ephesus
We arrived Kushadasi via a cruise ship and had 1 day to see the sites at Ephesus. "Mert" met us at the port and he and the driver took great care of our small group of 5 the entire day. He did an excellent job of explaining the history of the amazing site and also personalizing his tour with stories he had. Of course, we had to do the lunch and receive a carpet demonstration, but no one pushed any sales on us. We took an Ephesus tour last year with the cruise ship and the tour this year through About Ephesus was WAY better. I'd highly recommend the tour company with hopes you'll also get Mert as an amazing guide!
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.
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.
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.”
