Wonderful Tour- Less than cruise ship prices.
We had a great day in the Kusudasi area with our guide, Ms. Arzu. We added several fellow cruisers to our group and they quickly accommodated us with a larger van. We went to Sirince first and spent more time there than we intended, but it wasn't a problem. Lunch at the rug factory is well worth the stop. We didn't buy a rug, but it was an interesting tour and presentation. Even the quick stop at the leather outlet was fine. Nice little fashion show and explanation of the lambskin leather. We didn't buy a coat either, but no pressure in either place. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the history of Ephesus and, even though we were running a little late by then, gave us a great tour of the area including the terrace houses. Our recommendation would be two hours in Sirince, and two hours in Ephesus including the terrace houses.
Ephesus private tour
We booked our private tour to Ephesus before we went on our cruise, we were met by canan (our guide) on the dockside when we disembarked from our ship, She introduced us to our driverand the private air conditioned Merc taxi, from then things just got better and better.Canan took over and we went to all the places that we wanted to go to and was an excellent guide around the ruins of Ephesus. Canan has a vast knowledge of all the ancient ruins.We also had a typical Turkish lunch in a Gazebo in the middle of a garden where Canan took us.All in all the tour was brilliant and so easy to book from home and exceeded our expections on all fronts. I can thoroughly recommend this tour company to anyone who wishes to use it.Brian
Fantastic Touring with Ephesus Tours
The reviews in Tripadvisor helped me choose this company over the other thousands available on the internet. Guided tours with cars comes with their price but it is also a nice and safe way to enjoy the sights, if there is so much historical story behind the places. This company excels in communication. They personally called me to confirm all tours and discuss my needs and agenda. There was no obligation to pre-book or commit. They arranged for very good quality guide. Huliya is the best. We loved her. My son is her new fan. Knowledgeable in local history, and at ease with the places of interest. She moved with us at our pace and gave us time for enjoying the places in Ephesus and Pamukkale and Hireapolis at our pace. The food places where very good. We loved the carpet cafe (Turkmen). Although not prepared to buy any this time, I am sure we will come back to them. Car and driving was very good. so was the timing and arrangements. Although it was a rush to reach the airport, as we just wanted to stay on and on, we made it on time thankfully. The parting gift of small souvenirs and guidebook was a nice touch. We left with very good memories
Full day cruise stop
We recently went on a 12 Day Med Cruise with a stop in Ephesus . We use Trip Advisor frequently to assist with travel decisions. We were so pleased to find Ephesus Tours. It was highly rated and lived up to the rating without question! Our guide Selda was very friendly, knowledgable, funny and perfect for 4 of us to spend the day with. Our driver was courteous as we toured in a Mercedes van. If anyone is looking for a great option versus the tours booked through cruise ships, at a lower price per person, I would highly recommend Ephesus Tours for the guides, comfortably vehicle and intimate experience.
Excellent Ephesus Tour
We were on a cruise but decided we would prefer a private tour for our family group of 7 people (age ranging from 11yrs - 73yrs!). The arrangements went smoothly with very prompt responses to our email enquires. We were met at the cruise terminal by Gonca, our guide. She was very friendly, spoke wonderful English and was knowlegable about all the historic sites and had planned our day around our requested sites. We would highly recommend visiting the terrace houses as part of the tour as these give a real insight into how daily life was in Ephesus. I would recommend this company to everyone as good value-for-money. You can either let them plan an itinerary or they will work with your plans and give you a fixed price for that.

We arranged a private tour through Ephesus Tours (ephesusbreeze.com)for four of us from the Celebrity Constellation for October 22, 2013. All email arrangements were acknowledged quickly and information provided ahead was excellent and complete. We made a $20 deposit through PayPal and there was no problem with that. The driver and guide met us as planned, just off the cruise ship and we had a wonderful all day tour which included all the places we had requested. We visited the Temple of Artemis, the city of Ephesus including the Terrace Houses, the House of Mary, Sirince Village and had a delicious included traditional lunch in a nice outdoor area. We also visited a carpet shop during our lunch stop. We were escorted into the showroom and greeted. We told the man that none of the four of us was remotely interested in purchasing a carpet. He said to please look around as much or as little as we wished and feel free to leave. There was absolutely no pressure here.Our guide, Mrs. Selda Akyigit Tutkun, was excellent. She spoke English very well, was very informative, answered our questions well and made sure that we had the time we needed at each site. Our driver was also excellent. Because we had a separate guide, he could concentrate on navigating his way safely through the tangle of Athens streets. We also had a very comfortable vehicle for the six of us.This tour was so more complete and less expensive than the ship's tour. We also had a guide and driver for just the four of us. No big bus large group ship tour here. We highly recommend Ephesus Tours and their all day tour.
Excellent in Every Way!
Six of us from our cruise ship went together on this tour, and were very pleased. We did the full day Ephesus tour. Our guide wonderful Gonca was at the port right on time. She led us to a very comfortable van with a private driver and sound system so we could all hear. The historical sites were absolutely fabulous, and Gonca was really knowledgeable. We even enjoyed the rug factory! The complimentary lunch was delicious and the rug making demonstration genuinely interesting. Then came "display" time, and since we knew about it ahead of time, even that was fun. We all came away with our pocketbooks intact. We had some flexibility with the schedule after that, but we chose to head back to Kusadasi and shop a little bit. Ephesus was a highlight of our trip, and this is one place where you definitely want to hire a tour. I'd highly recommend this company!
Beautiful and captivating
My parents and I recently spent a day in Turkey and wanted to be able to experience as much as we could with what limited time we had. We booked a tour through Ephesus Tours and it was exceptional, it truly turned out to be one of the highlights of our holiday. Our guide, Canan, was very thoughtful and extremely knowledgeable. Throughout the day, she shared many fascinating details about the historic sites that we visited as well as allowing us a glimpse into not only what daily life was like back in ancient Turkey but present day Turkey as well. Perhaps the best complement I can pay Canan and Ephesus Tours, is that because of them, I will return to Turkey, as one day just isn't enough in such a beautiful and captivating country.
We had a wonderful private tour of Ephesus with our guide Ms Gonca. We were met at the appointed time at the pier where the cruise ship docked. Our minivan was clean and more than large enough to accommodate the 4 of us on our private tour. Ms Gonca was a delight. She was knowledgeable, spoke good English and answered all our questions both about the history and about life in Turkey today. All our entries fees were paid for and a lovely local lunch was provided. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for a more affordable private tour of Ephesus than is offered from the cruise lines.
Tour of Ephesus
I researched a number of sites before I chose Aboutephesus as our tour company. It was an excellent choice. We had a private tour with a guide and driver. Our guide Hakan, spoke perfect english. He was very professional and knowledgeable. The cost was less than the ship tour and we got to see a lot more. All of the entry fees were covered which also included the terrace houses. Our guide met us at the ship and we had a nice Mercedes van. I would highly recommend this company for a tour of Ephesus.
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.

“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.”
