Cheap way to see Ephesus
Cruising, we anchored in Kusadasi and wanted to see the Ancient City in Ephesus. As the ship excursions were very expensive we chose to go private. Booking with Ephesus Excursions was easily the cheapest. Our driver (Yucel) met us at the port with our name on a sign and drove us to the ancient city; dropping us at the top and picking us up again at the bottom. He was wonderful and the whole trip only cost 50 Euro (for all four of us), He gave us plenty of information about Kusadasi, and would have been happy to drive us anywhere we chose. A great way to see Ephesus on a budget. Highly recommended.
Great Bargain Tour
We have just returned from the November 2 - 16 Mediterranean cruise on the Star Princess and used About Ephesus Tours for our private tour of Ephesus from Kusadasi.At a cost less than a ship's bus tour with a herd of people, the two of us were provided a wonderful guide, Gulcon (Rose), a driver, and a new Mercedes minivan. All admisiions were included as well as a very nice lunch.We visited The Virgin Mary's House, were guided through Ephesus including the Terrace Houses, and stopped at the Temple of Artemis for photos.This was one of the best and most economical tours of our cruise and we certainly recommend that anyone visiting Kusadasi consider this tour.P&J

A great day! A private tour is the way to go.
We had the pleasure of booking our excursion to Ephesus with Osman Tourism which runs the https://ephesusbreeze.com tours. Our professional guide, Selda was a young, refreshing, charming, and above all knowledgeable guide which made the day a very worthwhile and pleasant excursion from our one day stop from our cruise ship. Everything went smoothly, and even the lunch that was included hit the spot. As most tours do, they make a stop at a carpet and/or pottery maker to see the process. There is no obligation to buy anything. Cruise ships do this on a routine basis. Much nicer when it is a private tour. I can understand why aboutephesus is rated so highly. Of course having guides like Selda should keep them at the top. All of us would strongly recommend booking with them.
On our recent NCL Jade Cruise Oct / Nov we used Ephesus Tours for our tour. Booking was so easy. Our guide Amy was waiting as our ship docked & we were whisked away in comfort for a fun & info filled day. Amy efficiently guided us through the crowds making sure that our small group of 8 arrived before the larger buses thus allowing us to get the full experience. Our lunch at the Carpet school was both tasty & enlightening! None of us actually understood the process of collecting silk or the painstaking job of making those beautiful works of art. We wish that we were there to purchase but not this time.Our group of 8 highly recommends using this company for your trip to Izmir.
A great Day In Ephesus
This tour was booked through aboutephesus.com. It was easy and handled professionally all the way. Our guide, Gurkan Nakipoglu, met us at the port and spent the day making ancient Ephesus come alive for the 6 of us. His knowledge and personality made this an unforgettable day.
Gonca from https://ephesusbreeze.com made us feel like family.
Excellent tour. Gonca is so personable. We had a tour of 11 people ranging in age from 7 to 70 and she made us all feel like her family.Our day went perfectly, Gonca was open and flexible to letting us tour at our own pace and we always seemed at least two steps ahead of the large tour groups!https://ephesusbreeze.com is a super easy company to work with. The booking was painless, all of my emails were answered promptly and Gonca and our driver were on time. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend https://ephesusbreeze.com.
Top Tour Guide for Ephesus
With a choice of 9 ports of call on our recent cruise, we were happily surprised that Ephesus topped the sites visited. Kudos to Selda Akyigit of Osman Tourism (https://ephesusbreeze.com) for her personable, knowledgable and leisurely pace througout the visit! Despite rain and cool temperatures, this day was spectacular. Unlike other historical sites, one is invited to walk in the shoes of the ancient people, touch their extraordinary carvings, really immerse into the incredible history of this memorable adventure. Although I was dreading the mandatory visit to the carpet making school, it proved to be another highlight to our excellent day. Additional learning was not what I was in store for and happily received. The provided lunch was authentic and freshly served. If you decide to make this visit, request Selda - and wear non-skid shoes for traversing the beautiful but slick marble pathways of Ephesus. I hope you enjoy as much as we savored this beautiful ancient wonder.
I had searched through the trip advisor reviews and after narrowing the choices down to a few, I sent emails asking for prices and options to create a private tour for our shore excursion. After looking at the options, About Ephesus was the choice and I was very happy with the decision. I was able to take a standard tour and customize it and it was less than half the price of the group tour shore excursion offered by our cruise. We met our private guide and driver as soon as we got off the ship. We first started with a drive out to the Virgin Mary's House. Along the drive, we learned some interesting facts about the region and Turkey in general. Then, we reached Mary's house and toured the site- very interesting. Then it was off to Ephesus where we had a leisurely and informative tour through the amazing ruins. Make sure to get the added tour of the terrace houses. This is the most well preserved ancient ruins ever discovered. After our amazing tour, we were off to a traditional turkish lunch and toured a government sponsored rug factory and showroom. We got an interesting tour of how these beautiful hand made rugs are made. It was actually very interesting although you do have to endure a bit of a sales pitch at the end of the tour. Then it was off to St John's Basilica and the Temple of Artimis to finish the tour. We had about 1/2 an hour to spare, so we explored the markets around Kusadasi before heading back to the ship. The tour was incredible and a highlight of our trip. I would highly recommend this tour company as they were very professional and the price was very reasonable.
Gonca Kizilhan of www.aboutephesus spent the day making our trip to Ephesus memorable beyond words!
We were on a Celebrity Cruise with our 24 year old daughter and the day we spent with Gonca in Ephesus, Kusadasi, and traveling in that region was FABULOUS. Gonca was amazingly informative, got us to Mary's House before the long bus lines got there, shared her personal knowledge of history as well as mythology and created a delightful day for us. For us, the tour guide and that air conditioned van made a huge difference. It was the favorite day of our cruise!
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.

“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.”
