Gizem from Ephesus Deluxe Tours was the key to our Ephesus experience. We were introduced to Ephesus and the entire Kusadasi area and its complex history in a way that made every part of it meaningful to us. Everywhere we went - the ruins, the garden lunch, the rug making demonstration, and even the little town of Sirince - she... More

Highly recommend this tour, and see if you can get Gizem Eti as your guide. She was a gem, very knowledgeable and able to answer all our questions. We were fortunate to have her for just the 2 of us for the entire day. Saw Virgin Mary's house, ancient Ephesus, Selcuk museum (recommended!), Temple of Artemis, had an authentic homemade... More

Actual tour is about 6 hours and rest of the time is lunch and rugs sales. but they were not very pushy. many guests who took other excursions were very disappointed with their rugs presentation ours was not...

I was very impressed with our private full day tour with ephesusdeluxe! We had the best tour guide, Berkan! He was very knowledgeable and passionate about his work! He was so kind to my 10 year old daughter and myself! We asked a lot of questions and he was more than happy to help us learn about this fascinating place!... More

We had a fantastic day in Ephesus with the Ephesus Deluxe private tour. Our guide (Octae) was SO knowledgeable and interesting. We had no idea of the richness of history in the area. The day flew past very quickly. We will recommend this tour to everyone we know who will ever visit Ephesus.

Our Ephesus Deluxe confirmation said max 11 people but when we boarded a full size bus we had 24. Going to the Virgin Mary's house and the ruins was good and informative. We knew we would go to the carpet making stores and I thought I wouldn't mind the sales pitch but I did. High, high pressure! What we didn't... More

According to our guide the area is actually restored to Roman times, not the older Greek city. On the way there she answered questions about contemporary Turkey, such as East/West differences. Tour was informative and included best photo locations. Terrace Houses are certainly worth adding -- one room has tables filled with "puzzle pieces" where they're trying to reassemble walls... More

Our guide was Gizem Eti who was absolutely delightful and very knowledgeable. I organized this tour and met our group online on Cruise Critic for our Med cruise and had 16 people sign up for it. We saw everything in Ephesus including the Terrace houses and the Virgin Mary house. Gizem was good about our time, getting us to each... More

We went to Ephesus Turkey as one of our stops on our Mediterranean Cruise, and it was wonderful. We fell in love with the Turkish people, as well as the country. Having gone to the Caribbean a lot on cruises, we're used to pushy and rude sales people. We did not have this problem in the Turkish shops...they were all... More

We enjoyed our trip to Ephesus and our tour guide Gizem Eti was the best. She was very informative, easy to understand and had an excellent sense of humor. She made our 7 hour tour of the ancient ruins the best excursion of our cruise. The private tour included 8 people total and was in a small air conditioned bus.... More
