Awesome-totally worth the trip!
Must sees: Library of Ephesus Breeze, Great Theatre-largest theatre in antiquity- 24,000 seat capacity, open air bathrooms. Don't get a tour guide near the entrance to the ruins. Ours rushed us and was absolutley terrible. Take around 2-4 hours to walk around all the ruins. Also see the Terrace Houses (extra charge).
Ephesus Tours Was Amazing
Twelve of us arrived in Ephesus on an Eastern Mediterranean Royal Caribbean cruise. We were met at the Kusadasi Harbour by our tour guide Naciye Otar (Nadia). She was holding up a sign with our name. The tour was amazing. Nadia, our tour guide, was adept in English, funny, informative, very knowledgeable, and well informed of current events world wide. I was so impressed with her understanding of the world outside of Turkey that it brought Turkish history and culture, particularly Ephesus history, to a level that we easily understood and enjoyed. We had many highlights to our trip and Ephesus was on the top of our list.Ephesus Tours includes a meal at a Turkish rug maker. Turkish rugs are beautifully made and the demonstrations were fantastic. Do not feel like you have to buy, but if you are in the market for a rug, this is the place to go. The food in beyond belief - the Turkish 'sea weed' salad is unbelievably good.If you get the opportunity, go to Ephesus. Take a tour and enjoy a culture that wants to share its history and food with the world.
A must see!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I did this trip together with Pamukkale which was wonderful. Both amazing. The only thing to beware is the over night accomodation. This was substandard. Check what hotel you will be staying overnight as we found a lodger in our room. A GREAT BIG COCKROACH. Apart from that absolutely amazing. Ishmail our tour guide was brilliant. Thankyou Ishmail.
pleased but pushy carpet sales man made me uncomfortable
We were met and the cruise port in Kusadasi by our tour guide Gonya. Don't know if I'm spelling her name correctly. The tour van was very comfortable. We visited all the sites we had agreed on. The only thing is that the "carpet demonstration" was extremely uncomfortable. The man became somewhat upset when he realized we were not interested in buying any carpets. When you first come in they offer you apple tea or coffee and cheeze rolls. This was nice, but they have a very aggressive sales approach and you almost feel intimidated into buying a carpet. There were two of us in the room with the salesmen and it was extremely hard to get away from these people when you are alone in that room with them. If you go in a large group is probably easier to get away, but I would not want this experience again. It was very intimidating.
Best tour on the cruise
I arranged a private tour with aboutephesus.com. For Sept. 15, 2011 we booked a 6 hour tour and not only was the tour a great price but after the greek tour stuffed in a cab the VW Sprinter provided by aboutephasus.com was some surprise and with super AC to boot! The tour also came with a driver AND Tour guide. The guide, Gonge is a University trained guide whose knew her subject matter. AND the tour came with paid lunch and admissions to the sites - If you can take just one tour - take this one. HIGHLY recommened.
Great Private Tour of Ephesus Turkey
The name of our tour company is Osman Tourism. The tour website is https://ephesusbreeze.com. The name of our tour guide is Gonza Kizilhan. We took a full day private tour of Ephesus that includes the following itinerary:- The Temple of Artemis /Diana- The Ruins of Ephesus including * The Celsus Library, * The Temple of Hadrian, * The Fountain of Trajan, * The Temple of Domitian, * The Monument of Memnius * The Marble Street, * The Great Theater * The Odeon.- Ephesus Archeological Museum - Visiting The House of Virgin Mary- Traditional Lunch- Rug Making Demonstration- Porcelain Making DemonstrationThe tour van was Mercedes that can seat 12 people. The ride was very comfortable. There were 4 people in our group. Gonca picked us up from the cruise terminal. We were in a Mediterranean cruise. We made arrangements for the tour ahead of time.Gonca was very knowledgeable and explained very well the significance of each site. She took her time in explaining and answered our many questions. She also asked our opinion on what we wanted to see and made changes to the itinerary. We were scheduled to see the Terrace House but opted to see the Archaeologica Museum instead. The lunch served was very good. The rug making demonstration did not have a high pressure sales.I highly recommend Gonca and Osman Tourism.
Fantastic tour of Ephesus
My daughter and I took a cruise which included a stop near Ephesus. I was looking for a private tour that would allow us to avoid the typical big bus tours but cover all the highlight of Ephesus, including the House of Mary. I read all the reviews on trip advisor and decided on this one with About Ephesus. Our guide, Gonca was fantastic. She was right there to meet us at the port as we arrive and was so nice and welcoming that she immediately put us at ease. She gave a wonderful overview of the country on our way to Ephesus. We were able to avoid the crowds at several of the more crowded stops - which allowed us to see more than a typical tour. If you are looking for a memorable tour with a wonderful guide, I would encourage you to try About Ephesus and ask for Gonca - she is super and you will not be disappointed.
Great value for money tour
After a lot of research I decided to book a tour with Osman Tourism (About Ephesus Tours) One tour was for my father and brother who visited Ephesus from Izmir. Their guide, Ebru, was good and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I requested Ebru for my own tour (which was an excursion off a cruise ship) but she was busy so my tour guide was Filiz Capraz instead.Filiz was very competent, knowledgeable and experienced. She gave us time to walk around by ourselves when we needed it and always knew the best spots to sit in the shade while giving us information about Ephesus. I had researched this company quite extensively and can highly recommend them to everyone. I must've sent about 30 emails to Istemihan Bey who was extremely patient with my endless queries.
A wonderful tour of Ephesus
We were 5 couples who booked a private tour of Ephesus via the internet. We fortunately booked with https://ephesusbreeze.com and had the most wonderful guide! (Also the communications via e-mail were also swift and clear with a Mr. Teleheri) Our assigned guide, Ms. Gonca (also called Rosie), is a young woman who is intelligent, most knowledgeable, vivacious, enthusiastic, and pleasant to spend the day with. She (and our wonderful driver Sky-High) escorted us for the entire day. They were most punctual for our pick-up at our cruise ship with a sign wo that we could easily find them. Rosie pointed out things on our way to the ruins at Ephesus, our first ( and longest) stop. She explained the historical and cultural information that helped us understand the ancient civilization that stood here. We thankfully had added on the Terrace Houses (at a slight additional fee) which should not be missed. As the day progressed we also toured the marketplace in Selcuk, the village of Sirince, the Cave of the Seven Sleepers,the Selcuk Archaeological Museum, a carpet weaving plant, and a pottery producing factory. A most interesting and worthwhile day at a reasonable cost!
An unforgettably wonderful day in Ephesus
We were 5 couples who cruised together and had booked a private tour through https://ephesusbreeze.com. I cannot say enough about the wonderful tour we had with Ms. Gonca as our guide and Sky-High, our driver. Ms. Gonca, or Rosie as she is often called by her tourists, is an intelligent, enthusiastic, and energetic young lady. She explained so much about everything we saw from the ruins of ancient Ephesus, the Terrace Houses (not to be missed), the archaeological Museum, the village of Sirince, the Cave of the 7 Sleepers, carpet weaving, pottery making, etc. It was a day that all 10 of us will always remember and treasure.
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.
