Tijen was a great tour guide. The driver picked us up at our hotel at the time we had decided upon. We spent the day at Ephesus, mother mary house, and lunch, and then airport drop off. I highly recommend getting a guide for Ephesus. There is so much to know about it and Tijen is very knowledgable! I would... More

Tijen was a top-notch tour guide for Ephesus and the Mother Mary home. Her selection of driver and a delicious local restaurant for lunch were excellent. We would absolutely book with Tijen again--her knowledge of Turkish history is outstanding, and she is a pleasure to spend time with.

The pick up was smooth; the transportation very comfortable (Mercedes Sprinter); and the guide very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

From the pick up at the airport to the drop off, we had a great time in Istanbul. We did both a night tour and an all day private tour. We enjoyed the night tour and seeing Istanbul at night. We appreciated all the sights that we saw on the one full day in Istanbul. Tijen and her team are... More

Her knowledge of the area was great and she took us to some unforgettable scenes, like the fairy tales chimneys and picturesque rock formations... More

Our tour with Tijen was a highlight of our vacation. She picked us up in Izmir and gave a good overview of the countryside en route to Ephesus. Once there, she proved very knowledgeable of the site, and adjusted both her commentary and pace to meet our interests. Next we went to St. John’s Basilica where she again proved an... More

I found Ephesus Tours through a guidebook and e-mailed them for more information; Tijen replied that she would be available to take us on a day tour of Ephesus. I had to e-mail several times to confirm and did not hear anything. After calling the main number, I found it very difficult to communicate in English. (This is strange for... More

We spent a very full day with Tijan touring Ephesus that completely exceeded our expectations. She has a perfect combination of knowledge and enthusiasm that is necessary for a great day. A couple of key points: 1. Completely flexible itinerary. Our group of 4 women were both history buffs and shopping enthusiasts. Once we started talking on the ride to... More

I booked this tour for our family after a string of informative emails from Tijen. She was very professional and responsive. Tijen met us at the cruise ship pier as promised at 8am sharp and she was easy to spot as she held a sign with our name on it at the pier gate. The driver joined us in no... More
