We highly recommend Osman Tourism for any private visit to Ephesus
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 Osman Tourism to arrange a private tour. The response was instant and informative. They were happy to organise the programme that we wanted, met us exactly as promised on arrival and the guide that they provided us with (Burak Deger) was excellent, amusing, well informed with fluent English. He made our visit to Ephesus everthing that we had hoped for. Our recommendation - book through Osman and ask for Burak!
About Ephesus-Great tour, great price, but could do without the "tourist traps"
We had a great experience on About Tours. It was better, and less expensive, than traveling with a large group of people on a tour bus all day. Our guide, Elcin Yilmaz, was great. We felt safe and comfortable. The only thing I would change were the stops at the "tourist trap" pottery shop, rug factories and jewelry stores. Although the demonstrations are interesting and they sell the stops as a "cultural experience," I would rather spend the time seeing sites than feeling pressure to purchase one of their handicrafts. I would tell the tour guide from the start that you do not want to stop at any of these places!
We had an excellent tour with About Ephesus tour company
We were on a cruise that stopped at the Kusadasi port in Turkey and decided to book a private tour of Ephesus with About Ephesus (https://ephesusbreeze.com) instead of booking with the cruise ship. We read all of the great reviews for this company so we felt confident in our choice and we were not disappointed. There were 7 of us in our group and the full day tour cost 420 USD (60 USD per person), which included all entrance fees as well as lunch. This was a lot cheaper than the tour offered by the cruise ship, and it was much nicer to have a private tour for just our group rather than being on a huge bus.Ali was our tour guide and he was waiting for us at the Kusadasi Port with a sign with our name on it when we got off the ship. The minibus for the tour was very nice and air conditioned, a must as it was extremely hot in Turkey. Everything went very smoothly and we got to see everything as well as have a very nice authentic Turkish lunch. Ali provided a lot of historical information while we were touring Ephesus and the Terrace houses, the Virgin Mary's house and lots more, but he did have a strong accent that you had to listen very carefully to understand what he was saying. When we asked Ali where we could get some olive oil, he made a special stop at a store for us to purchase olive oil as well as some authentic Turkish Delights. We had a full day and they got us back to the port in plenty of time to get back on our cruise ship.We only had to pay a $20 USD deposit (using PayPal) when booking the tour. The rest of the cost was paid (with credit card or cash) after we completed the tour.I highly recommend this tour company!
Perfect Private Tour for Four People
About Ephesus TeamThank you for the fabulous private day tour we enjoyed today. We paid $280, to our guide Ergin Ince who was excellent as was our driver, lunch & admission fees.We are very appreciative of the arrangements made for us & the mode of transport was most comfortable, clean & air conditioned. Our guide was inside the terminal waiting for us with our name displayed & was warm & welcoming.Ergin brought Ephesus to life for us & was extremely informative; we even had people listening to him & complimenting him on being a much better guide than theirs from other companies. He guided us expertly to be at the front of the queues & out of the heat as quickly as possible without rushing us or lessening our experience.Our driver drove at a safe pace & would park up in the shade to keep the vehicle cool until Ergin rang him to say we were on our way back & he would then have the air con working so the vehicle was an oasis of cool for our return. We recommend them on Trip Advisor as they have been honest, genuine & delivered a day beyond our expectations - THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
Fantastic tour and amazing location
We contacted Tatma ACAR, of Ephesus Breeze Tours, through a friend. Fatma is a spunky, brilliant women with a sharp mind! She is incredibly knowledgable, practical and worked well with four adults and three college age kids. She kept us all interested and was able to give us history as well as information on current events in the area. I would definitely recommend her for any age!! She is a breath of fresh air!!
A Highlight of Our Trip
We were on a 2-week cruise throughout the Mediterranean and fortunately, thanks to reading reviews like this one, we decided to book a private tour through Ephesus Tours. It turned out to be one of our brst decisions on the trip and one that I would recommend without any reservation. We couldn't have been more pleased with the ease of booking, the reasonable cost and the prompt and well-organized service. However, the best part was our guide, Gonca Kizilhan. She was very personable, well-informed, entertaining and interested in making sure that we had a day to remember. We were fortunate to have her to ourselves (along with her driver - also a terrific person) so the tour was a very intimate experience. I told Gonca that we would like her to customize the tour as she saw fit rather than to follow the prescribed itinerary. it turned out to be a wise move since she took us to a couple of villages instead of spending an overly long (and hot) time in Ephesus. We spent a little more time with her over a leisurely outdoor lunch, got to know her and many of the Turkish people we encountered with her. This was our first visit to Turkey and thanks to Gonca it won't be our last.
Great tour guide!
We had a day in the Ephesus/Kusadasi area during a recent Mediterranean cruise. We hired Ephesus Breeze, to show us around. What a fabulous experience! Arzu met us at the dock with a very comfy, air conditioned minibus, stocked with lots of cold bottled water. He gave us a great tour of Ephesus and environs - Mary's house, Temple of Artemis, St. John's - then took us to a family farm / nomadic rug weaving training center for lunch. It was my mother-in-law's birthday, and Arzu arranged for a birthday cake for her at lunch - and taught us to sing "Happy Birthday" in Turkish. It was a delightful day. We highly recommend Arzu.
Excellent Tour - Highly informative and great service
We were on a cruise that stopped at Kusadasi and decided to do a private tour of Ephesus with About Ephesus (aka Osman Tourism) after reading the wonderful reviews. This is by far the best tour I have ever been on and it's actually cheaper than the tours offer by the cruise ship. Our guide, Muge Yesildag, was very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable about the sites we visited. She would point out the things to look for and her narratives were very interesting. We also visited a carpet weaving demonstration (which I was told was required on every tour) - it was very informative and I have a greater appreciation of these carpets after seeing how they are actually made. In sum, this is a tour I would highly recommend people do if they ever visit Kusadasi (or Izmir) and wanted to visit Ephesus.
Ephesus Tour with Hello Ephesus
Ephesus - Hello Ephesus - our guide was 'Susie' - a great guide. I had arranged a specific tour to see all the things I wanted to see. Standard tours take you to 2-3 sites but I added Sirince Village and one other site at $100US ea.Any tour in Turkey will take to to a rug factory but our short visit - marketed to see how rugs made -did turn into a sales pitch but the vendor was very pleasant and we did not waste each other's time. Had a very nice lunch at our restaurant stop. Ephesus is 'Fantastic'. - a true marvel. Lots of people there but spread out. Do the Terrace Houses as part of the visit.Hello Ephesus very professional and definitely recommend Susie and our driver Suliman.A holiday highlightAll entry fees included in tour cost
The best tour guide
We just returned from an amazing full day guided family tour of the main Ephesus sites. This was expertly organized by Umit at Ephesus Breeze Travel. The days schedule was well balanced and kept the interest of everyone for the full day (2 adults, 16, 15 & 10 year old boys). Our guide was truly amazing, extremely friendly and polite but also knowledgeable and engaging. I recommend you request Hakan, he also has a great sense of humor! Both breakfast and lunch as well as private tour minivan with driver and AC were included. The meals were both in picturesque locations and with traditional Turkish food.I highly recommend Ephesus Breeze travel and both Umit and Hakan, no reservations. This is a high quality very professional company.
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
“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.”
