On a June cruise (on the Silhouette), we booked the semi private full day tour from Kusadasi port. It was a good value vs ship excursion, $200 for our family of 4 (no discount for my kids since they are not under 6), we got to see the amazing ancient site of Ephesus with a trip into the Terrace Houses...

We went on a tour of Ephesus with a company I would HIGHLY recommend! The company is called ephesusdeluxe.com. You can find them at wwww.ephesusdeluxe.com. The contact person was Mr. Deniz Kose and you can reach him at the above email. I would also highly recommend our tour guide whose name was Gizem Cakirgoz and can be contacted at gizem@ephesusdeluxe.com.... More

After reading other reviews from Trip Advisor, I decided to go with a Private Tour of Ephesus rather than a Celebrity Cruise shore excursion. The price was better and we could customize the tour the way we wanted. I believe our guide's name was Ercument. The transportation was comfortable, the service prompt, the guide friendly and helpful. I was happy... More

Prior to our med cruise we booked on-line with Ephesus Deluxe for a half day excursion for three people to Ephesus originating from Kusadasi for Sunday August 31. When we disembarked our cruise ship the Celebrity Reflection in Kusadasi, we were met by Gizem and advised that we the only three people booked on the tour. After a short walk... More

This 4 hr excursion to Ephesus is excellent. The place is amazing and the knowledge of our tour guide was very good. Price included ticket entrance and house ticket. No meals served. After the tour we were taken to a carpet place where we learned how the silk cocoons are transformed on absolutely gorgeous carpets. Unfortunately the price was way... More

We booked the Ephesus Deluxe tour in lieu of taking a Princess Shore Excursion in August 2014. I would have given this tour only 1 star due to our tour guide, Ceyla, if it were not for the price ($50 per person) and wonderful lunch served (included in the price). Based on price and the sites visited, this tour would... More

Price, quality of historical coverage and pace of the tour was great. Organic lunch excellent. Not only did we tour St John Cathedral and burial place, Mary's house, ancient Ephesus, rug making and tile making facilities (which during the hot season does provide a nice break). Also visited a . small Mosque Our guide J-la was very informative and knowledgeable.... More

We were in port for one day from the Celebrity Silhouette, and had booked the Didyma, Melitus, Ephesus and Terrace Houses tour. I really liked the tour options that Ephesus Deluxe listed on their site and that they had all the prices listed. This is a jam packed day, but I highly recommend making the drive out to Didyma and... More

We booked a small group (up to 12 i think-we only had 8) to tour Ephesus, etc instead of using the cruise line. Gizam was very knowledgeable and really made sure we saw everything! She was wonderful and really sweet. The garden terraces in Ephesus were fabulous. The whole day was great. She took us to a rural area for... More

We just returned from our month long european vacation and I have to take a moment to thank our wonderful guide Gizem for not only showing us the beauty of Ephesus but for also introducing us to the Turkish way of life. She's extremely knowledgeable and with her wonderful personality she added personal touches to our day long excursion. I... More
