Very informative and Pleasant Ephesus Tour!

Upon arrival we were pleasantly greeted right outside the port by Ahu, our tour guide to Ephesus. We were driven in a private vehicle to Ephesus and were given a thorough tour of Ephesus and the Terrace Houses. It was great to be able to see everything that Ephesus offered along with getting an overall descriptive narrative through Ahu. Ahu was not only a tour guide but she was very easy to speak to and made the tour fun for all of us. She even took us to a runway show which featured leather jackets. They were pricey so we didn’t buy anything but the experience was fun. I could have done without the rug shop but how the rugs were made may interest some. Overall, we had a great experience with Ahu and if we ever visit Turkey again we would be sure to look her up!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our private tour. We were in complete control of our day and how long we spent at each site. St John's Basilica was under renovation so we only visited from outside but we were taken to a muesuem nearby instead. Our guide Ahu was extremely knowledgeable and provided detailed historical and religious explanations at each site. As this was a private tour we utilised the option of making additional stops (within the duration of the tour) and choosing any drop off point at the end of the tour en route our pick up hotel. Highly recommend this tour!

Ahu is the most exceptional toir guide we have ever met! What an absolutely magical experience that completely exceeded our expectations. We were deciding whether or not to do the Ephesus Tour which includes the visit to Sirince: and we are so glad we did! It is a cute little town with great wine that ties up the whole experience. Exceptional experience, wonderful guide and driver... Was an absolutely incredible experience!

Really outstanding! Our guide was well prepared, clear, and very engaging. He was our best guide during our two week stay. He has deep historical knowledge and really wove together many centuries of history. We learned a lot and had fun. The driver was also professional and spoke English. Our van was super comfy, too

Ephesus is awe inspiring, a great tour around the excavated parts with a friendly guide, The house of virgin Mary and the church of St. John, the gospel writer, is included. Not to be missed!
