Spectacular Experience -- We want to tour all of Turkey w/ Cem and About Ephesus
We can not speak highly enough about our About Ephesus Tour. We had many wonderful private tours throughout the Mediterranean and our tour of Ephesus, and our tour guide Cem, were far and away the best. Our family (which included two teen-aged boys) loved every minute of our tour. From the first minute I contacted About Ephesus, all of our dealings were positive. They responded quickly to every email inquiry and question, were very accomodating and I felt that our tour and our safety were insured. When the four of us were led by Cem to our private, air-conditioned luxury van, we knew we were in excellent hands. I had originally asked to start our tour at 8:30 and the tour company urged us to start at 7:30. Great advice. We were about 15 minutes ahead of the crowds all day. Cem spoke perfect English (besides majoring in history, he also majored in English literature in college) and was well-spoken, thoughtful, extremely knowledgeable about Turkey, world history (ancient and modern), modern politics and Ephesus. Ephesus is spectacular. The ruins are wonderfully preserved and it should not be missed. And you really should use About Ephesus and ask for Cem. He is as much a treasure as Ephesus.
The Guide Makes the Tour
We have had many private tours/guides all over the globe. Selcuk was in style, manner, knowledge and superlative English the best guide we have ever encountered. As for the company, communication was clear, immediate and thorough. And as for Ephesus, while it should not be missed, mandatory is a visit to the Terrace Houses, separate but on the same site.
The Best Ephesus Tour and the Best Tour Guide Gonca!
My wife and I have cruises many times and to many places. We have taken many tours over the last 10 years and have had tour guides that were good and not so good. We had the pleasure and good fortune to have Gonca Kizilhan Dasdemir as our guide In Ephesus. This wonderful young woman was knowledgeable and informative. She made us feel welcome and was more then helpful with our needs. She geared the tour to what we wanted to see and do. When the tour was over it was like we were leaving one of our family. Gonca should be commended for her services and I feel that she went over and above her duties to make our tour special and the best that it could be. When we returned to our ship and spoke to other people that had taken tours with other companies it confirmed my feels that we in fact had the best tour and the best tour guide that we could have had. When we said goodby it was like saying goodby to a family member. A Great day spent in Turkey with a great tour guide!

Excellent Tour experience
We booked our tour with Ephesus Tours, run by Osman Tourism, and what an excellent day we had! We were picked up by our Tour guide, Hulya Acar, in an A/C Mercedes Van right on time. She had an excellent knowledge of the entire Ephesus area and its History. We had our 3 year old son with us and we were worried about taking the toddler with us on this tour but Hulya made it feel very easy and simple. She even went to the extreme of handling the baby-stroller for us at many points of the tour!The tour included visit to the House of Virgin Mary, Epehesus City, then followed by a traditional lunch, which we must day was the highlight of the entire trip. Hulya then showed us a traditional Carpet Weaving school and surprised us at the end of the day with a nice bag of souvenirs.10/10 and very highly recommended.
Cost is far more without a rug or "art" stop
I was very impressed by all the reviews for this company. I was leaning towards the "create your own Ephesus tour" and did not want to use my time at the carpet factory (also referred to as art gallery) or a leather shop. This information was included in my booking request.The reply I received stated the cost would be an additional $45 per person ($135 total) if we did not make those stops. I was also told that ALL travel agencies are taking their guests to the "art" galleries. I have since located a travel company that does not include these factories.
From the time that we started investigating various tours from Kusadasi to the time of actually booking, About Ephesus Tours stood out from the rest. I contacted various tour groups before we left to Kusadasi and Mr Teleri stood out as by far the best in terms of customer service. Immediate replies on emails, descriptive detailed tours provided with more than reasonable prices. When I was ready to book I let Mr Teleri know that I wanted to book two tours with them: Ephesus one day and another day with Priene, Militus, and Didyma. I was in a quandary about what to do about seeing Aphrodisias and Pamukale. It appeared to me that doing both would be impossible. While I was pondering this dilemma my phone rings in Canada. Mrs Julia is calling to help me book my tours with them. I asked her about my dilemma and she put together a full day tour that included both. We now had three tours booked with them. And I thought the prices were awesome. Prices included all entrance fees, our driver and guide and our lunches for the day. Private tours with your own air conditioned vehicle. I looked at the difference between bus tours and private tours and felt that spending the little extra money to go privately was your best bet. Unless you are on a strict budget. Even then I would look to save money elsewhere. How often are you in Turkey? You want the best experience possible. You also saved the hassle of renting a car and paying insurance and ungodly gas prices. Which would also mean figuring out your tours and doing a lot of homework to learn the info about each tour. Our tour guide was Arzu Altun. She was young and vibrant. A wealth of information not only about your tours but about the area and people as well. She was extremely professional and so much fun to hang out with. I was so glad we had her as our guide for all three days. Our tours were all exceptional. Traditional Turkish lunches provided that were so good and added to the over all experience. Our driver was awesome in that you felt safe at all times with his driving. In all, these tours were the highlight of our brief but amazing Turkey vacation. We loved this groups professionalism so much that we booked them for our commute back to Izmir Airport. I would highly recommend this group. Everybody involved from start to finish was exceptional in providing a most memorable experience. Kudos to this team!
Sinan Okut, our tour guide working for The Turkish Ministry of Tourism, was not only a wealth of information about the ancient city of Ephesus, but he also kept us entertained with his fantastic sense of humor and outstanding command of the English language! The guided tour was approximately 6 hours in duration (this included a short rest stop as well as a stop at a local carpet manufacturer). There was a lot of walking over very uneven and slippery surfaces. Shade from the sun was at a premium and had I known, I would definitely have brought my umbrella for shade. What a fabulous day we had...I highly recommend the tour, and specifically our guide Sinan!
Great day in Turkey!
We got back a couple of hours ago from an absolutely delightful experience touringEphesus. Our tour guide Filiz was incredibly knowledgeable, professional and totallygreat at explaining the wonder of Ephesus. We only wish that we had her for a tourguide in Naples. We would heartily recommend this company to anyone visitingTurkey. We hope one day to go to Istanbul and definitely plan on calling EphesusTours again. Thank you Filiz for a great time!
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.
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.”
