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

We just returned from a two week med. cruise. I booked most of our tours DIY and the tours I booked separate from the cruise line cost less and were FAR better. I booked Ephesus Deluxe several months in advance for a very reasonable cost, payable in Euros upon completion of tour. We booked Ephesus and the Terrace houses as... More

This was the 2nd time we have used Ephesus Deluxe while docked in Kusadasi. Both occasions we used the tour which involved only the 2 of us, a guide & a driver. And both days were just awesome. Thanks to Deniz for providing such knowledgeable guides & drivers. We would not hesitate to book with this company again if we... More

We purchased a half-day private tour (vehicle and guide) form Ephesus Deluxe on 21 May 2015. Our guide, Rafet, was very knowledgeable and engaging. We had recently been to Ephesus, so we only wanted to go to Mary's House and Sirince. Rafet suggested that we also see the Isa bey mosque and the foundations of the Temple of Artemis -... More

I really feel this tour only deserves a 3 because we were almost left at the port due to the tour going to leave early with 2 different people in the place of my husband and myself. We were at the "meeting point" outside of the port a few minutes earlier than was stated on our booking email and there... More
