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

I was in Turkey in 2010 and met Tijen and Aydin from Epesus Tours. Of all the traveling I have done, this was one of the best tours I ever had. Ephesus Tours took great care of everyone on the tour, customizing the tour to everyone's specific needs. Ephesus Tours took excellent care of me and made sure to show... More

I visited Turkey for the 3rd time using Ephesus Tours; during this trip Tijen Oral was our guide. We had met for the first time 8 years ago and she still remembered me! I was so happy to see her again and to have her take us back to my favorite places...the ruins in Ephesus, the serene town of Sirence... More

After researching Trip Advisor, I contacted Ms. Tijen Oral for a day tour in Ephesus. A week before we were to arrive, I reconfirmed our tour with Ms. Oral. We got off the ship and there was no tour guide waiting for us. We stood around looking lost and now wondering what we were to do. After awhile, one of... More
