Cigem was Great!!
My husband and I went on a tour of Ephesus with our tour guide Cigdem. She was waiting for us as our cruise ship docked. After introductions, in perfect English, we joined our driver for the day.The places we visted were: Mary's House, Esphesus ruins, a pottery shop and a leather goods shop. We also stopped for lunch at a beautiful outdoor cafe. The food and the hospitality was great.I highly recommend this tour with Cigdem.
Awesome tour and experience
We did a private tour of Ephesus, The Terrace Houses and Sirince Vilalge and it was an amazing day. Our guide Melih was wonderful, very knowledgable and made our visit very personal. Lunch was awesome, and the views in Sirince were great. We really enjoyed Ephesus and the terrace houses, and would highly recommend paying the additional $10 to see them. The private tour was by far one of the best we have ever had, and was comparable to the larger ship tours. We highly recommend Ephesus Tours and Melih!
Great private tour in Kusadasi, Turkey
I booked a private tour for 8 people for a one day cruise stop in November, 2011 at the port of Kusadasi, Turkey with the tour company "About Ephesus". My booking was done through email. I was very pleased with the prompt replies from Mr. Teleri from "About Ephesus". "Lily" our tour guidemet us promptly at 8am and we were able to leave before the ship tour groups. This proved to be a real blessing at "the house of the Virgin Mary" our first stop. There is a shrine builtover the site where it is believed the Blessed Mother lived out her last days, and there are faucets for the spring water at the site, so bring a bottle with you. Our tour included a visit to the Temple of Artemis, a guided tour of the Ancient city of Ephesus, the Terrace houses, the Museum , and the Basilica of St. John., The tour of the Ancient City of Ephesus and the Terrace houses was incredible. Lily , our tour guide, was so well informed and took such great care of us that we all enjoyed the day enormously. I was cruising for 3 weeks with about 9 stops, and this was by far my favourite stop. The transportation vehicle was a Mercedes van - extremely comfortable. "Lily" is the English translation of our tour guide's real name. The other 3 couples whom I met through cruise critic were also very appreciative of the excellent service provided by "About Ephesus". We were travelling on the cruise ship " The Navigator of the Sea". I paid a $20US deposit through paypal, and paid the balance at the end of our tour, an arrangement which suited us very well. Payment could be made in euros, US dollarsor other currencies. There was the usual carpet tour but there was no pressure to buy. I spoke to other passengers who went with other tour companies and they also were given a tour at a carpet facility. The carpets were beautiful and I did not mind seeing how they were made. A fabulous day! Thank you Lily!
Pampered, Informative, Exciting, Fantastic
Ephesus tours was fantastic. they picked us up at the ship and we began a day of absolute perfection. we had toured Ephesus before on a prior cruise and used the tour from the cruise line. This time around wanted a more personal feel to our tour. There were specific places we wanted to visit and places we wanted to go back too. One of our main issues is we did not want to go the rug factory which every tour off of the cruise ships takes you too.. We had a guide and a driver. There were 3 of us. They took us on a very personally guided tour of the ruins and excavations at Ephsesus. we learned so much more than we had previously. Learned lots about Turkey, its origins, its people and of course its many treasures. the history and knowledge our guide had was phenenomal. He pointed out "little things" you would never had noticed on your own. Two of us had been there, but for our 3rd friend it was new to her. He took in too consideration our wants and needs. He had the itinearay but was flexible and adjsuted it as the day progressed/ An example was lunch- he asked if we wanted to go to where the tourist normally eat and we insisted on his taking us to a truly local place. So he took us to this small little cafe that he and his family frequented and we actually had real turkish food which was incredible. our driver and guide sat with us, they knew the owners so it was a very initimate lunch for us. they let us try different dishes. was a great way to relax, catch our breath before we proceeded on with our tour. the day was a day to remember. I would go back and do the same tour all over again. the amount of history, customs and real life experiences we recieved made it a very special day. Especially because our ship the Norwegian Jade was heading to Instabul next and the same com,pany had guides in Istanbul as well. we were unable to go to Egypt due to the unrest in the region at the time. So the cruise line re-directed us to Istanbul. But i will save that reivew for later. Awesome day! If you would like additional information just contact me and I will set you up with their email address.. we still get emails from them.
PRIVATE TOUR IN TURKEY
We recently organized a one-day private tour to Sirince village, the house of Mary, the ruins of Ephesus and a delicious Turkish lunch in Kusadasi with Ephesus Tours. Our guide was prompt, polite, knowledgeable and honest, and we had a very careful chauffeur as well. We would certainly recommend the young gentleman, Taylan, as a guide if you are in this region of the world. We found the village of Sirince, known for its fruit wine production and handicrafts, very appealing and, of course, Ephesus and its ruins were a delight.
Gurkan from About Ephesus Tours gave us a GREAT day of touring
My wife and I visited Ephesus on our cruise in October. Instead of taking the ships tour we booked a private tour through https://ephesusbreeze.com. We were met at the cruise dock by Gurkan, a licensed tour guide who provided us with an extraordinary day. We saw Ephesus, including the Terrace houses, Sirince and had lunch at a rug making school. Not only did Gurkan provide a great tour, but his knowledge of Turkish history and the surrounding area made for an illuminating day. He set the pace based on our wishes - we were never rushed, nor were we left waiting. The vehicle was neat and clean and the driver met us at each location when we were ready. The reasonable fee for our tour included all entrance fees - there were NO surprise costs. We could not have asked for a better experience with a tour guide. Gurkan gets our highest recommendation!!
Best tour - aboutephesus.com
Great guides. Brand new MB vans. Great information! Don't take the cruise line tours - they are so expensive!! Go on Cruise Critic and go to the roll cal for your cruise and ask who wants to go on a private tour. Save money! Meet fun people!
About Ephesus Tours
In Nov 2011 we were visiting Turkey for the second time in three years, but it was our first time to Izmir. We heard alot about the Ancient City of Ephesus and hence wanted to see the place. I looked on the Internet for the fellow travellers reviews and noted that About Ephesus Tours had five stars rating, on many websites. I wrote them an email of my preferred destinations near Izmir and Ephesus. They were simply GREAT!!. We cross emailed for more than a month (I am an accountant by profession and wanted the best deal) and they were always very very helpful indeed. The day when Tour had to began, our Tour Guide Gonca (She was great and i will write a separate Para on her) and our driver SkyHigh were at the hotel before the agreed time. For you to understand the price competitiveness of About Ephesus consider this => when we asked our hotel (without letting them know that we already have a tour booked for next day with About Ephesus) to quote us a price for this Tour Itinerary, we were quoted a 10% more price in a shared vehicle. On the other hand, About Ephesus send us a VIP, 14 seater Mercedes van, crisp condition. The guide (Gonca) was very flexible - being a private vehicle they would stop anywhere we asked them to. It was amazing experience with these great people. Along with agreed desinations they also took us to Carpet Making (where we saw cacoons and silk extractions) and to Pottery making. Also, they were so flexible that on Day 2 we changed our mind of going to Paumakkale (being a 4 hour drive one way, total 8 hours) - they happily agreed and changed the itinirary of the day and gave us reduced price for the revised destinations, without any penalty or without any fuss. They arranged a full day country side tour (MilliPark, Cave of Zeus, Sirince Village, Cotton Fields etc). Now abuot Gonca - she was the reason we enjoyed so so much in Izmir. She had a smiling face. She was polite, considerate and very very infomative. She is a good fotographer too as she took many fotos for our whole group. I strongly suggest that if you have an option, request About Ephesus team to pair her with your group. At the end of day 3, she was just like one of us - she ensured that we eat what we liked, she always ensured before meal time that what we wanted to eat - she woult call the planned restaurant and request them about our preferances. She was simply great - a big reason why we enjoyed Izmir / Ephesus so much. Thanks Gonca!!!
We had the pleasure of being guided thru Ephesus thru ephesusbreeze.com. We had a terrific day with Raife and our driver (sorry, I forgot his name) in Kusadasi and Ephesus on November 11th . She is a very considerate and knowledgeable person. Our tour was flawlessly performed from start to finish. Please send Raife and our driver our highest regards.
Great day in Ephesus
Our tour guide Mrs Selda and driver were very professional. I was traveling with 2 adults and 8 college students, the day was wonderful. I did not know what to expect at the rug factory, however the students were very interested in how they were made and enjoyed that part of the trip, Lunch was great. Ephesus was a great place to visit and Mrs. Selda made it a wonderful day.
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
“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.”
