Exceptional half-day tour of Ephesus led by Selda Akyigit Tutkun
My wife and I just completed a half-day Ephesus tour led by Selda Akyigit Tutkun. She's the best!. The tour certainly exceed our expectations. First of all, the tour lasted for much more than half of a day. And it ended only because we got tired, not because Selda wanted it to come to an end. We got much more than our money's worth. Selda's English was great, she was very enthsiastic, she was knowledgable, and she kept us moving along at just the right pace.And to top it all off, she came back to pick us up in her personal car, from our hotel that night, for some additional sightseeing. When it all came to an end, she would not accept any additional tip for her hard work and extra time.
Perfect tour in Ephesus with Arzu
The tour in Ephesus was the best part of our 5 days stay in Turkey. We arrived a day earlier than our confirmed tour date in Izmir but About Tourism did not hesitated to accommodate us and look for a new tour guide available that day. Our tour guide name is Arzu, she is one of the best tour guides we've met, she is very accommodating and knowledgeable with Ephesus and all the places we've visited. With perfect english, she was able to bring us back in time detailing each of the most important things/events in Ephesus, we had goosebumps just walking along the ruins of Ephesus. Lunch was great, I'm not a fan of salads but when I tasted the salad she prepared for us I cant help but finish everything in my plate. I will definitely recommend About Tourism especially Arzu to our friends and relatives who wished to visit Ephesus. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience.
My older brother and I had the pleasure of having a private tour with Leyla. She was absolutely wonderful to listen to. Her English is great and she presents Ephesus in an interesting and accessible way. Afterwards, she took us to a delicious lunch place which was attached to a carpet co-op, where we saw weaving demonstrations of both silk and cotton Turkish carpets. The weavers were incredible. We also got to see how they spin silk there--using a traditional manual silk-spinner. It was a beautiful experience and we loved Leyla. Definitely one of our best days on our Turkey trip! Highly recommended!
Amazing Ephesus tour with Arzu on 21st April 2013
My wife and I would like to send out a big thank you to Arzu Altun and her company for making our day at Ephesus so memorable. Arzu's knowledge and passion for her country's history is really commendable . The minute detail she explained in perfect english of every temple , public forum/ site , house and street was simply amazing. Her commitment and enthusiasm to her job is simply 110% , and we cannot but recommend Arzu so highly for making our day at Ephesus just perfect. Our driver also warrants a mention for his punctuality and professionalism. The impeccable Mercedes van was very comfortable and we felt like we were in our living room chatting away with Arzu without really noticing we were on the road. A real dream of a tour and one we will never forget. Steve & Rita - Malta
Loved The Tour: Now what am I going to do with the rug?
This is a bit late in coming, but I would be remiss if I didn't let fellow travelers know about Ephesus Tours. I arranged a private tour for 12 of us from Holland America’s Nieuw Amsterdam. The communication prior to the tour was extensive and professional and because it was a private tour, we made a few changes from their standard full day package. The guide was friendly, professional and well spoken. She went out of her way to make sure everyone could keep up with her on a pretty walk intensive tour. The mini-bus was clean and comfortable.The tour itself was outstanding – one of the most interesting I’ve ever been involved with. The ruins of Ephesus should be on everyone’s bucket list. You can easily imagine that you’re walking among the ancient citizens of this once thriving center of culture and commerce. The terrace houses are a masterpiece of excavation and presentation, giving you a glimpse of household living thousands of years ago. The house of the Virgin Mary and the Basilica of Saint John was not only historically interesting but emotionally moving regardless of your faith. Our lunch was set in the outdoors of the Government Co-op and were served and excellent traditional meal that included appetizers, salad, meatballs and chicken and most of us order a beer or two.Perhaps the only reservation I would give, is to be prepared for a pretty hardcore sales pitch after the carpet demonstration. Although you are by no means obligated to buy, many including me parted ways with thousands of dollars for some very nice carpets. Mine is still in the closet, waiting for a proper display on the walls.
one day tour of Ephesus
In Oct 2012 we visited Ephesus with UgarHe showed us sites that were off the beaten path and gave us the true flavour of TurkeyThanks
Excellent tour in Ephesus
We took a one day tour in Ephesus, in which we went to the following sites: Ephesus, Virgin Mary's House, Basilica St John, Ephesus and The Artemis. We definitely reccomend this company for three reasons: they are very serious when you make the reservation, the tour is very good and well planned, and finally, the tour guide called Canan has an excellent english and is very professional.It is a very good option to book a tour in Ephesus, and this company was awesome!
Excellent private tour. Highly recommended.
My wife and I booked a tour with Ephesus Tours this past November and it was an excellent experience. We were met at the Izmir cruise port by Gonca and the Driver. Gonca speaks perfect English and is very friendly and professional. The van was roomy and very clean and comfortable. The information packets provided were great and several small souvenirs were included. We chose to visit the main ruins of Ephesus and the Temple of Artemis. Time management was awesome. We were given the option to visit a Leather outlet and we chose to stop at the outlet on the way back to port. We did not end up buying anything and no fault of the tour company but I wouldn't recommend the stop to my close friends. If this interests you, be prepared to pay a fair amount for the goods. Not really what we were looking for at the time. Anyways, this was an excellent choice for a private tour of Ephesus.
Great tour @ Ephesus!
We had a group of 11 and About Ephesus Tours arranged a perfect size, comfortable minivan to accommodate us all. Our guide was Rosie and she was excellent. She was very knowledgeable and had a very friendly and wonderful personality. She was able to cater to our requests for different stops and shops along the way. We would highly recommend this tour company. It's so much better to have a private tour for Ephesus because there is so much interesting history and facts, instead of following a huge number of people around in a large group.
About Ephesus Tours
We had a great experience with Ephesus Tours on our recent trip to Turkey. We toured both Ephesus and Pergamum on two different days. Both days we were picked up on time in a beautiful Mercedes van that was very comfortable. Our guiide was Arzu Altun for both of these tours. Her knowledge of the sights was amazing, and she related it to us in an easy to understand manner. She clearly has a love of her nation's history and traditions and her enthusiasm was a real plus. She is a wonderful young woman and was a very pleasant companion for our journey. We even enjoyed the carpet factory stop. We thought we would not like it before we arrived. The lunch was good and no pressure was applied to buy. We highly recommend this company
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.
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.”
