I would basically never take another tour like this again. Much better to use a good guide book. We paid a lot of money for a half day tour for our family. I had seen some good reviews and booked it from Australia. Disappointingly, we were rushed through Ephesus, before we knew it we were being walked out the gate,... More

Dear Ms. Heard, Thank you very much for your e-mail. Your comments are very valuable for us in the selection of our tour guides and improve our services. We regret to hear that you did not enjoy some parts of the tour. The tour you booked is a half day tour which is limited with 4 hours. You were given... More

I truly appreciated the very quick responses during the booking process and the outstanding service during our tour. Denizahn was cheerfully waiting for us immediately outside the Port terminal. Our tour included a brief stop at the ruins of the Ancient Temple of Aretmis, a in-depth visit to the Old City of Emphesus, and then to the House of the... More

To begin with, I mistakenly booked the wrong day for our tour for 4—our ship was in port a day earlier than I had thought. After contacting the company, they were able to reschedule us for that day, only 45 minutes later than originally planned! Our English-speaking guide, Ezgi, was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable about the history and culture... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our day touring Ephesus, the Terrace Houses and the Virgin Mary's house. Our guide Habib and driver from Trans Balkan tours were terrific. We learnt such a lot and appreciated the care taken to ensure our day was a memorable one. Lunch was included and we enjoyed trying the local foods in a cool, quiet, shady setting.... More

Hiring a car, driver, and guide was the easiest way for us to travel from Izmir (modern airport with lots of wasted space and poorly designed bathrooms) to see Ephesus and end the day in Kusadasi where we took the ferry to Samos. The service was professional, the guide very informative, the lunch quite good. The only negative was a... More

We arrive by cruise ship and our assigned guide was a few minutes late. I cannot remember her name. We first went to Ancient Ephesus and I felt that our guide skipped several areas. When we went to the terraces houses she asked if we wanted her to go in with us. I said yes (I thought that is why... More

We read your comments. You have not mentioned your name and the tour guides name. Since you are from Memphis, we are assuming that you are Brenda May that we served on June 10. The assigned tour guide was Ms. Ozlem Kucukoglu who we have been working with many years. She is an experienced and licensed tour guide. In your... More

We used Denizhan Pekoz / Ephesus Travel Guide and were completely satisfied. They assigned Ms. Gulcan to us and she was terrific. Excellent English. Well-educated. And a great sense of humor.

We were met right on time outside our cruise terminal by Ezgi, a young woman who would be our guide for the next 4.5 hours. My husband, adult daughter, and I enjoyed the luxury of having a private new van and our own guide while paying less than the shore excursions with 40 people on a bus. First we went... More

Our family spent a gorgeous day discovering Turkey with Dennis. He was so informative and patient with our 7 and 4 year old. (The 4 year olds complete meltdown didn't even unsettle him!) He was ready and waiting as soon as we left our cruise ship. The car was comfortable, clean, and cool. He not only taught us about Ephesus... More
