This archeological site is sublime.Excursion incourtnable for who loves history and culture. Only 20% of the site has been updated, excavations continue, everything is wonderfully and incredibly well preserved: the details of temples, columns, texts ... it's beautiful !!!! We booked with an agency local in Bodrum (price 27euro per pers instead of 59 euro with our TO) .Attention however to the optional visit of the house of the Virgin Mary (that's where she would have ended her life, the tomb of St Jean is also found in this region, 4 kms from there), the guide sells it to 35TL (+/- 14euro per pers) while the price is 15TL !! The best would still be to rent a car and take a guide audio on the site of Ephese.Gain not insignificant time! Good visit!
In September, my wife and I, plus another couple, took a Mediterranean cruise which stopped in Kusadasi. Ahead of time, we booked a private tour with "About Ephesus", and we are so glad we made that choice. The booking process was prompt and thorough, and they explained in detail what was included. In fact, I was surprised how much was included for the cost. On the day of the tour, everything went very smoothly - the pick-up, the transportation, the tour, the lunch, the carpet & pottery making demonstrations, and the drop-off. The key ingredient in our wonderful experience was our guide, Gonca. She was very knowledgeable, efficient, adjustable, and friendly. She did a great job of guiding us through the Ephesus ruins in a way that didn't waste time, but made us feel comfortable. Gonca's historical insights were enlightening, and we loved her personal interactions (including seeing her wedding pictures). The demonstrations were informative and enjoyable, and there was no 'pressure sales pitch' at either location. Based on our experience, I would highly recommend "About Ephesus" Tours and Gonca The Guide.
We had a FABULOUS experience on our tour last week with " About Ephesus" . Our guide picked us up at the cruise port in Kusadasi and took us directly to Mary's House followed by Ephesus. Our tour guide Gonca was great! She really helped us to understand not just the ancient culture, but a fair amount about today's Turkish culture as well. She is extremely knowledgeable about the ancient site of Ephesus and was a delightful person as well. The van was very comfortable and spotless. A wonderful day!
Really interesting afternoon
We had an excellent 1/2 day trip which combined Ephesus with the Virgin Mary's House, close by. Ephesus is an amazing place if you are in to your ancient history and/or archaeology, over 3000 years old in parts and some of it really well preserved/restored. Our guide was also excellent - highly recommended
Booking with About Ephesus Tours was easy. They explained in detail exactly what the tour would include. We were picked up in Kusadasi at the cruise ship port and had a wonderful tour with Hulya who was knowledgeable in history. She also shared some interesting anecdotes with us. Hulya gave us the freedom to tour at our own pace, but she used the time we had very efficiently. She and the driver coordinated our stops so that we could avoid crowds and make the best use of our time. The minivan we traveled in was immaculate and we felt quite safe being driven by our driver. Lunch at an outdoor garden restaurant was quite pleasant and the food was freshly made. The tour was a good value compared to others.
Full Day Ephesus Tour
We spent 2 weeks in Turkey and Greece and the Ephesus Tour was definitely the best thing we did on our trip.Ms. Gonca our tour guide was amazing. She had so much knowledge and could answer all of our questions. The Mercedes van was so comfortable and lunch was a real treat at a local restaurant where our guide eats also.We will book another tour with this group and will tell all our friends who travel about them
What a Great tour company to work with. From the time we met our guide Gonca and got in the Mercedes Van to the time we arrived back to the ship. We met Gonca early, which was great because we beat all the Ships tour buses and stayed ahead of them the entire day. we missed all the heavy crowds. Going with About Ephesus Tours is a must do, forget the tour buses and there crowds, you are on their schedule. Gonca let us decide where we wanted to go and where we wanted to stop. The Lunch that was included at the Rug and Carpet dealer was the best. By the end of our tour we had already exchanged Face book and e-mail addresses and gotten a response the day after our return. Gonca knew her history and was able to answer all of my questions.
Tour of Ephesus
Donna and I could not have been more happy with our excellent tour of Ephesus. Filiz was marvelous. Her english language skills were superb and her knowledge of the history was top notch. We thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the tour- the Virgin Mary's house, Ephesus including the terrace houses, lunch at the carpet store, the carpet making education, and the stop at the pottery shop. We also appreciated the gift bag given to us by Feliz at the start of our day. Feliz was waiting for us as promised at the cruise dock. The van was very comfortable and our driver (Boresh??) was excellent, never making us wait and we always felt very safe. We will recommend your company to anyone visiting Turkey! Please checkout ''https://ephesusbreeze.com'' and ask for Filiz as a tour guide. You won't be disappointed!The McDowellsState College, Pennsylvania
We booked a half day tour of Ephesus arriving in Izmir by cruise ship. It seemed unbelievable value compared with the tours arranged by the cruise line. There was only the 2 of us and had a brilliant time. Our tour guide Selcuk was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable. He guided us round the Ephesus site to avoid the worst of the crowds. The Terraced Houses were the highlight and so good that only private tours allowed in there. We also visited a ceramics factory as well as lunch at the carpet village. This was most pleasant having lunch with the village animals around us. We learnt a lot and cannot thank Selcuk and our driver enough for giving us a memorable day. This was much more than a half day tour and much appreciated. Many thanks all round.
Probably our best tour guide during our Mediterranean Cruise
No disappointment with About Ephesus Tours. We organized this private tour for four people several months before the date of our cruise. Although we disembarked from the ship a bit early, there was Goncha (Rosie) smiling and holding our name sign at the port gate. We were escorted to the immaculate Mercedes van where our driver was waiting. Rosie is a well educated, modern Muslim young woman with perfect English. She has a delightful manner and put us all at ease immediately as she dove into the history of her beloved Kusadasi. She is very knowledgeable on both archeology and religion - both Christian and Muslim. We started early and managed to stay ahead of the crowds throughout the day. We had left the tour up to the company as none of us had visited this part of Turkey and we wanted to see it all. And we did. Would highly recommend this company, very professional and well organized. We were even able to get rid of all our Turkish Lira (at an extremely fair exchange rate) when we paid our bill with some US cash and the balance in Lira at the end of the tour. If you don't want to do the usual tourist stuff of visiting rug factory or leather store, just let them know and you can avoid. However, the leather store has beautiful items at very favorable prices (negotiating very necessary and expected!). Comfort stops were well selected and very clean. Excellent value for both guide and driver. No disappointment, highly recommend.
I would like to book,
Wondering what to see?
The museum has two main sections, namely the archaeological section and the ethnographic section. Was established and artefacts unearthed during excavations and collected were brought to the museum.
Testimonials & Reviews
“Our Guide brought Ephesus to life for us & was extremely informative; we even had people listening to him & complimenting him on being a much better guide than theirs from other companies. He guided us expertly to be at the front of the queues & out of the heat as quickly as possible.”
