Eight of us (4 couples) had the privelege of visiting Ephesus with Osman Tourism and our guide Cidem. Cidem made our visit to Ephesus one of complete awe through her great knowledge of the site, her enthusiam, professionalism, diligence and her wonderful positive spirit. We were given a private, air conditioned van and a careful, professioonal driver! We spent quite a bit of time at the Terrace Houses which were absolutely amazing and an absolute must see. We also were taken to a rug weaving display which turned out to be most informative and enjoyable (not the pushy sales display we were dreading!). We were even presented with a bag of memorable trinkets from Osman Tourism at the end of our tour, just an added little bonus that let us know how much th e company appreciated our business. I would HIGHLY recommend not just this tour of amazing Ephesus, but particularly, using Osman Tourism for your tour.
Ecellence in Ephesus
Our experience with Osman Tourism was just excellent. We had the privilege of getting Elcin as our guide and she was just wonderful! She was on time, friendly, fun and very knowledgeable about the historical background of the areas that we had the opportunity to see. She stopped and told us facts as we toured the different areas and our walk through old Ephesus was just an incredible memory maker for us. We had a great lunch at an outdoor area in a rug factory and just had a wonderful day. We highly recommend Osman and ask for Elcin for your guide if you get the chance!
About Ephesus - About Tours excellent
We arranged a 6-hour private tour of Ephesus and we were delighted with all that we saw for a significant savings over cruise ship tour prices. Our guide, Selda, was knowledgeable and charming. We highly recommend this tour!!
trip from kusadasi to ephesus
we joined the tour organised by our cruise although we wanted to go there independently so we could spend more time and save some money, but since we couldnt find all the 'confirmed' information online such as the cost of the local guide or the availability of the audio as without a proper guide, Ephesus is just a ruin with lot of stones, at the end we settled for the tour, but looking back, we wished we didnt as Ephesus is only 20-30mins drive from kusadasi and there are plenty of taxi one can hire, meaning lot of competition so if you are good, you could really negotiate a good price, also, there is audio guide available in Ephesus which only costs 10TL to hire (about USD4), and we wished we had gone on our own as we could really spend half day there, but instead we were rush to finish the Ephesus in about 2 hours (not long enough when you are traveling in groups) for they were eagar to give us the carpet demostration afterwards, not mentioning we each were paying USD60 on this trip which you could easily go on your own to save half of the price and enjoy Ephesus longer.
Our group of 4 couples were arriving on a Celebrity cruise and wanted a private tour of Ephesus. From the first correspondence, I found Mr. Istemihan Teleri to be honest, prompt and informative. He allowed us to tailor make our tour adding visits to the House of Mary, the Terrace Houses (phenomenal - not to be missed) and the heritage village of Sirince. His price was less than any other company contacted. I did inquire about the visit to the art gallery and was told honestly that these visits subsidize your tour by paying entry fees to the different sites. We actually found the visit informative - saw how silk threads are harvested and then watched several girls creating rugs and tapestries. The lunch was also quite good. The salesmen were a bit pushy but not nearly as aggressive as ones we have encountered in Morocco. I cannot speak highly enough of our guide Cidem. Cidem is very friendly and knowledgable which helped make our tripto Ephesus very enjoyable. Cidem is very enthusiastic and diligent guide who is easy to get along with and who makes sure she takes you to everything you ask and then explains each site in a detailed and informative manner. I would highly recommend her. In addition our van was very comfortable with AC and was clean and well maintained. Our driver was professional and very friendly. This was a wonderful day overall thanks to About Ephesus tours.A tour with Ephesus Tours will not disappoint
Excellent Ephesus Tour (ephesusbreeze.com)--"Muge" Tour Guide
Took a bit of a risk and pre-booked this personalized tour for my wife and self with a non-cruise company provider. Normally, we would book through the cruise line, typically at twice the price. Muge, our guide from Osman,(pronounced "moogay" ) met us promptly at the cruise terminal, provided an excellent/upscale vehicle and driver, and completely described each component of what we wished to see. An excellent traditional lunch was also provided along the way. Highly recommend Osman Tourism as the host provider, and Muge, for this type of tour(see About Ephesus Tours). We've seen lots and this company is clearly a top notch service provider.
Best tour of the cruise
Four female friends cruising the mediterranean and hoping for a fabulous day in Ephesus. None of the tours offered through our cruise line looked like exactly what we wanted as we were hoping for something of a private nature that catered to our needs- no carpet lecture please!. We wanted to fit in the highlights of Ephesus, the home of the Virgin Mary, the Artemission Temple, St. John Basilica, an authentic Turkish lunch, and shopping that might be a bit different from what the regular cruise crew would see. Emre, our guide, understood what we wanted and adjusted our day to meet our needs. He was personable, knowledgeable and totally in tune with our group. He took us to his favorite restaurant for lunch, the shopping area that he and his fiance frequent on weekends and helped us avoid shopping where merchandise was not of the best quality. We took several tours during our seven day cruise and all four of us agreed that our Ephesus Tour was by far the best. It cost much less than was offered through Royal Caribbean. We had a large air conditioned van that could easily have accommodated 10 people . We had an entertaining guide, Emre, who charmed all of us, and we never had a doubt that we would make it back to our cruise on time. Although the cruise ship folks warn about booking tours other than the ones they offer, we found that the tours we enjoyed the most were the ones we booked independently. We did not have to pay until the tour was completed, something you do not get to do with the cruise tours. We could have cancelled or adjusted the tour at any time, and the accommodations on the tour itself were always better.
Excellent day out
We travelled as a group of 8 adults on our tour with Ephesus ToursI cannot speak highly enough of our guide Cidem. Cidem is very knowledgableand made our trip to Ephesus very enjoyable. The itinerary was planned beforehand and we got to see everything we wanted to. We spent quite a bit of time at the Terrace Houses which were absolutely amazing. (a must see). Cidem is very enthusiastic and a very diligent guide. Very easy to get along with and would highly recommend her. Our van was very comfortable with AC and well maintained.

Excellent tour and tour guide
Our tour guide was so terrific and made our trip to Ephesus perfect. We can't wait to go back. The tour company is about speaks and our guide was Gonca Kizilhan. She asked what type of sights we were wanting to see and then made our tour exactly what we wanted. She was a delight and the Turkish lunch was delicious .
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.”
