We have used Levent Solmaz for our private tours since 2008 and each time he makes Ephesus come to life. He is very knowledgeable and friendly. He also takes good care of the cats; the caretakers of Ephesus. : ) He planned a great tour day for our last visit to Kusadasi in Oct. 2012, that included a full tour of Ephesus with the terrace houses, Mary's house, St. John's basilica, lunch and a fun visit to an authentic rug factory. Our group of 25 really enjoyed the day thanks to Levent. He is the only guide we will ever use when visiting Turkey.
Amazing definitely worth the trip.. half a day is plenty though as it is extremely hot out there. You don't miss much doing the half day rather than the full day you still see all of Ephesus
Memorable Ephesus tours
We got my Ephesus tours from About Ephesus Tours. They took us from Izmir Airport . Our guide was very professional, knowledgeable. 8 of us had great time . Our guide Filiz gave us history , culture, daily life and insights about this spectacular city. Later we visited house of Virgin Mary. We were impressed by the Terrace houses in the city. We enjoyed being in the theater, After visiting Ephesus , we drove to this small village, infamous for their traditional Turkish rug making.They demonstrated us how to make the rug. After this nice lunch, we visited one of the seven wonders of the Ancient World, Temple of Artemis. Our guide Filiz gave us some presents and some books about Turkey. We strongly recommend this tour company to anyone.
Really fascinating place
Our tour was an excursion arranged through Norwegian Cruise Line, and it was nicely done. The tour guide had been an exchange student to the US for a year and spoke flawless English. But the city must have been a marvel in it's heyday. Toilets with sewage drainage, hot and cold baths, a library that had three stories, paved streets (stones of course), a market called an "agora" where the Apostle Paul had a tent selling business while he lived there, and an ampitheater. We went there in November, which is the "off" season. I hate to think how crowded it must be in the summer! Our bus stopped just before entering the site so people could use the toilets, as there are no accommodations at the site. We learned some fascinating facts about the city and were able to take loads of photos. Great tour.
I planned at tour of Ephesus while on a cruise and I booked it through Ephesus Tour and not through the cruise ship. It was a much better deal and experience. The guide met us at the dock with a sign with my name on it. We had four adults and a nice air conditioned van all to ourselves. He had cold water bottles for us and he was full of information and facts. It was very hot and little shade so be prepared. After seeing the ruins he took us to a school where they teach girls how to make silk rugs. They showed us the process and served us lunch and wine. The food was great. Then he dropped us off in town so we could shop before getting back to the ship. It was a perfect day and a great way to get the most out of Ephesus since we were only there for one day.
A trip not to be missed!
On our last vist to Turkey we arranged our holiday so that we could visit the amazing Ephesus! This is a trip that is not to be missed. A Roman City which really comes to life when you listen to the guide, you can hear the bustling in the streets and the chatter in the baths! We visited Ephesus about 15 years ago and just had to make another trip to see what other excavations had been carried out and although it didn't look too different, lots of work has been going on behind the scenes.......and it is still going on. Do visit - we did twice and would still go back again.
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.
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.”
