Fantastic guide Ceyla showed us the great Roman city of Ephesus which is amazing! Great tour, great guide. After went to St. Mary's house which was a spiritual moment for the ladies. Great day!!
Highlight of our trip to Turkey and Greece
After reading the wonderful reviews of the tour company "About Ephesus" we decided to book a day tour and we are so glad we did. Ephesus is amazing! Our tour guide, Selda, was wonderful! She spoke perfect English, was informative, fun and even famous (inside joke :). We visited "The House of Mary", "Ephesus", and the "Terrace Houses" (Don't miss the Terrace houses they are fascinating).We did end up stopping for lunch and a tour of a carpet factory. I was very much opposed to this at first because I thought it would just be a "hard sell", but the people at the carpet factory were gracious, interesting and served a wonderful lunch. We ended up enjoying it and I even purchased a beautiful carpet, but I was not made to feel obligated to do so.Thank you so much, Selda and About Ephesus. Your tour was the highlight of our vacation.Dineen and Henry
Perhaps the most exciting ruins around. Much still being excavated, but plenty to see at this point. The reconstructed library is a must see. Allow plenty of time, and the guided tour is most helpful.
We greatly enjoyed our private half-day tour of Ephesus. The mini-bus was clean and comfortable, the guide was pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable, and the food was excellent (and very plentiful). No hesitations in recommending them.
Wonderful private tour
My friend and I arranged a private tour from Izmir about 36 hours prior to our visit in November. We emailed and received immediate reply. A quick phone call followup and everything was arranged. Our car and guide Arzu Altun met our flight. Arzu is a charming young woman with a pleasant personality and very good knowledge. I had been to Ephesus two years ago on a shore excursion but I learned so much more from Arzu. We spent nearly 4 hours at Ephesus --- she did not rush us through and gave really good detailed information. Listening to some of the other guides with ship groups, it was clear that she knows her history! The terrace houses are amazing -- don't miss them even though they have an extra admission fee. We had lunch at a carpet school/factory, but the sales staff was not pushy. We were not in the market for carpets although the prices seemed good. We did ask for a specific shopping stop which Arzu arranged.It was a good value for a full day with private guide and driver. I would definitely recommend both this company and our guide.
We took a 4 hour tour of Kusadasi and Ephesus in late November when visiting on a cruise ship. Took a small group tour and thought it was excellent. Would recommend this company.
Tour of Ephesus with About Ephesus Tours
We had a wonderful tour with Mrs. Filiz. Our itinerary included the Virgin Mary's House, the old city of Ephesus, the Terrace Houses, and lunch/tour at a carpet factory. We were a party of 8 that includes a soon to be 90year old and another person is her 80's. Mrs. Filiz was especially very conscious of making sure that whenever possible our older participants were able to sit when fatigued. When they decided not to participate in the tour of the Terrace Houses, she located a place in the shade that they could sit and wait for the rest of us. She was very knowledgable of the subject, and very easy to understand. Our vehicle was very comfortable, and felt very comfortable with the driver also. When he realized that our party included older people, and shorter people, he made sure there was a stepstool to assist in getting into the vehicle. On the whole we were very pleased with our day with About Ephesus
Tour of Ephesus
We booked a private tour through About Ephesus tours and had a wonderful experience. We had a private tour in a very nice Mercedes van and our tour guide Arzu was waiting for us when we got off our cruise ship. We only had to pay a $20 deposit and then we were able to pay the balance by credit card after the completion of the tour. We received a nice gift bag and we got to see everything we wanted to see, the ancient city of Ephesus, Mary's house, St Johns Basilica, the temple of Artemis, the temple houses, etc. You just tell them what you want to see and they will quote you a fair price. Our guide Arzu and driver were excellent and email communication prior to the trip was excellent as well. I highly recommend this company and will use them again if we have the pleasure of visiting Turkey again in the future.
A 5 Star Tour: Great Guide
We were met on time at the cruise ship terminal by Ayse for our private tour and had a running commentary about Kusadasi and Ephesus. Her knowledge was exceptional and not not boring. The Ephesus/Terraced Houses sites were magnificent and we were given as much time as we needed to explore, take photos, and listen to the history. By being fairly early we missed most of the crowds but by the time we left the site it was packed with large tour groups. Make sure to look for the cats all over the site and ask why they are there. We had a beautiful lunch at the carpet making school and a demonstration with the usual sales pitch. None of our group of four minded the demonstration as we got to see the various sizes, patterns, and types of threads used, very educational. We were dropped off at the Bazzar near the ship and enjoyed some shopping time. We had a half day tour which lasted almost 6 hours and was a highlight of our Mediterranean cruise. We would recommend this tour company as a 5 star, couldn't be any better.
Great feature packed day
Ephesus is sensational so go. The tour was very good. As per most tours, I felt that you get a much better and tailored experience in a personalised tour. The service provided was exceptional. Excellent quality transport, extremely knowledgeable and pleasant guide. The tour packed in a lot in one day. It does include the obligatory visit to a carpet shop, but without any pressure to purchase.
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.”
