Impressive and extensive ruins that you actually walk through and can touch, Not like ruins in Rome that are fenced or roped off to keep you from touching anything. An offered side tour within Ephesis are the Terrace Houses which are enclosed in a large shelter and which you walk through or over on scaffolding. Amazing views of ceramic tiled floors. Crowding was not bad but at peak season has got to be jammed with people. At end of tour are many souvenir shops, food, and rest rooms. Female Turkish guide was exccellent and referred to our group[ as "my people". Ruins although large, are only 10% uncovered with work continuing every day. A slow process. Not too difficult a walk as its mostly downhill.
Osman Tourism gave us the best possible tour in Ephesus
I arranged a tour through Aboutephesus before going on a Mediterrian cruise. I had 8 other people join the group through cruise critic and everyone in the group was so pleased with the tour which included ephesus, the terrace houses, home and burial site of Mary , the Bacilica of St John and a wonderful homemade lunch served outside family style. The company was very easy to work with and our guide Evid was great. I wish he had told the group where the public bath and toilets were at Ephesus so if our group wanted to see this area we could have done so instead of spending time at the library. But in spite of this everyone was pleased and would highly recommend this tour company and Evid our guide.
Take a taxi and save
We landed in Kusadasi, Turkey and took a taxi to Mary's house, Ephesus and temple Artemis. We paid $20 US for a 4 hour trip an saw evrything we wanted as the driverwas both english speaking an very knowledgeable. The three sites are self explanatory and the entry fees are very reasonable- 8 TL for the Mary's house, 20 TL for Ephesus an the temple was free.
About Ephesus Tours Can Be Trusted For Ephesus and Istanbul
Valentia and the rest of her copany were a pleasure to work with and I will highly recommend you and Ephesus Breeze. Valentina answered all of my e mails personally within one day and made every accommodation I requested. I have never made tour arrangements exclusively by e mail but she made it simple and secure. My biggest question was whether we could modify the standard website tour offerings. They customized our tours exactly to our liking and we were made aware that we could also make changes on the day of the tour. The tour guides were top flight. Ali Emrah AK toured us through Ephesus, Mary’s house and John’s church, etc. and Cumhur Numan Tasdogan guided us through the entire city of Istanbul. Both guides were warm, personable and had tremendous command of the English language, answering every question we had and squeezing as much information as they could into the time allotted. They were both punctual and waiting in the respective port. Also, we felt very safe while touring with them.
Excellent, informative tour!
We were travelling on a cruise ship with 3 couples and booked a private tour with About Ephesus Tours. Our tour guide Muge Yesildag was great! She was very knowledgable and could answer any question we had. Even though it was very crowded in Ephesus, Muge seemed to get us to each place before the big crowds arrived! We would definitely recommend this company and tour guide, and Turkey of course!
Best Tour of them all!
We spent a day at Ephesus with a Ms Cigdem of the tour company . I have had many tours and we found this tour company the best we have encountered. We were traveling on to Urgup and she was so helpful in finding us a hotel and things to do.They were also helpful in tours of Istanbul.They are very efficient and get back to you quickly. The tour van was comfortable and the driver got thru all of the traffic in a breeeze.Good company
Wow...this tour was the BEST!!!!
We decided to sidestep the expensive tour offered by Celebrity Cruises and hire our own driver and guide through About Ephesus Tours. It is easy to book the tour online and required just a minimal deposit. What a deal! For $150 the two of us had a private car, driver and tour guide. Our tour guide, Gurkan Nakipolu, had a major in tourism and history. He met us at our ship and whisked us away for an awesome day. Gurkan was so knowledgeable of what we were seeing and the history behind. We toured all Ephesus had to offer and had a great traditional lunch in the backyard of a school for rug making, which we also toured with the owner. This is an impressive operation that I would recommend to anyone, and at a very attractive price.
THE BEST EPHESUS TOUR
There were 6 adults in our group. They picked us up at port in a comfortable van,we had our own personal tour of Ephesus, Terrace houses,Temple of Artemis,House of Virgin Mary, then a wonderful lunch.We then had the option of going to a carpet ,ceramic, and leather store.We only did the first 2 and after being in Kusadasi twice before we still learned more, at the shops and also on the tour.Our guide Selda was very knowledgeable and a real sweetheart. We wish her well in her new marriage! This by far was better and less costly than the the ships tour which we had taken twice before. https://ephesusbreeze.com
Great tour in Ephesus
Our guide Felicia met us at the ship eventhough we were uncertain about the time of arrival. She greeted us pleasantly and took us to the awaiting van and out tour began immediately. Felicia was knowledgeable about all the sites and we learned many new facts beginning with a tour of Mary's house and ending with a tour of a carpet maker( we only than began to appreciate the art and time put into these beautiful tapestries) not overlooking the main attraction-Ephesus-its library, agora and stadium. I found out about this tour-About Ephesus Tours from trip advisor and I was not disappointed. It increased my appreciation of archeology, history and religion much more than reading from books. The trip certainly enhanced any prior superficial knowledge and Felicia helped us to appreciate the agriculture and the customs of the people.Felicia was professional most soft spoken and quite caring. At times, she even pointed out the best perspectives for pictures. Book with them you will be happy you did.
Ephesus - High Point of Trip
Thanks to Omur and About Tours, Ephesus was our favorite port of call. Our guide was extremely courteous, knowledgeable about everything from antiquities, to agriculture, and even funny. Omur has a degree in archeology and had worked on the digs at Ephesus and provided more than just tour guide spiel.We began with the stop at the House of the Virgin Mary - Meryama. We arrived ahead of the tour busses as was the case the rest of the day. We then proceeded to the ruins of ancient Ephesus. We also visited the ruins of the Temple of Artemis. Its sheer size was amazing even though only one of the 100+ columns remains on the site.Nuts and bolts: we were met at the ship; vehicle was very comfortable (driver spoke no English); all admissions were included; lunch is included at the government run Turkish rug cooperative. Lunch was quite good. Watching the processes there was interesting.Be strong when you get to the part of the Rug making tour where the sales pitch is made. We were the only people there at the time ahead of the tour busses as we had been all day. We did buy a rug, but the way out to the area where we had lunch is lined with other merchants hawking jewelry, collectibles and a variety of other items.Once again the tour is much less expensive than the ship offerings and far superior in terms of attention. Omur presented us with a small gift bag as soon as we arrived. The major find in the bag was a very nice refrigerator magnet.
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
“I booked online with Ephesus Breeze as an alternative to the cruise ship sponsored excursions for a one day tour for myself and my two teenage sons. Booking was simple. We paid a small deposit via paypal, and then the balance in cash in US dollars at the end of the tour. The fee included all entrances.”
