What to expect
Meet your small group and guide at your Selcuk hotel, then make the short trip to Ephesus in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan. Trace a route through the ruin’s highlights and hidden gems, with plenty of time to explore sites like the Celsus Library, the Great Theater and the Temple of Hadrian, a 2nd-century structure built to honor the visiting Emperor. Hear about daily life in the ancient city, and learn how local beliefs, politics and religion have changed through the centuries. See the ruined foundations of the Temple of Artemis, once a Wonder of the Ancient World that was damaged by earthquakes, Goths and passing time. Take in an important Catholic pilgrimage site at Bulbul Mountain, where some believe that the Virgin Mary lived her final years in a small, stone house. Discover Isa Bay mosque, a jewel of Seljukian architecture, whose brick minarets tower above Iznik-tiled domes and 12 columns, then finish the day with return transfer to your Selcuk hotel. This tour includes lunch.

Amazing guide
Aug 2021 • Family
Joseph was our guide and interpreter for 6 day trip excursions over a week long stay in Kusadasi. His knowledge of classical Greco-Roman culture, civilization, and architecture was deep and thorough. As well his ability to translate and transition between Turkish and English made his presence invaluable for our group with a limited knowledge of the language. He is very personable and a great listener. We wish we could’ve brought him along to the next stop on our trip, Istanbul!!! Highly recommend

Visited Ephesus by myself, and was in a need of a tour guide to appreciate the ruins. Marsy was our tour guide and she was just great--knowledgeable, enthusiastic, warm. helpful. She really brought the site to life, and would highly recommend this tour to anyone!

Going back thru time in a wonderful way
Mar 2020 • Couples
Visited Ephesus with my wife in March 2020. We chose Alaturka & was given Marsy as our tour guide. We had a great time with her. She made the ruins come alive with her stories & captured our imagination esp in the library ... hahaha! Thank you so much Marsy! My wife was so happy that she wanted to come back with our children in the future. So that our children can appreciate modern amenities. We appreciate Turkey's rich heritage of ionites, romans, byzantiums, turks, etc ...so interesting that we paid attention! Also, thank you Marsy for giving us tips on photography spots. You are such a gem!
Good job Alaturka... worth every euro & more!

Ephesus and Pamukkale tour
Mar 2020 • Couples
We took the small group tour for Pamukkale and Ephesus , we had the best guide Marsy - she’s so warm, energetic and loving , she made us totally comfortable during our tour on both the days.... It’s so evident that she loves people and loves her job, I feel that we were extremely lucky to have had her as our guide and now we’ve gained a friend for life , if I get to visit Turkey again , I will make sure I visit Marsy no matter where she is!!!!

Nov 2019
Marsi.. you are one of a kind!!! Because of you, I will have high expectations with tour guides from now on. You are the best! My friend and I enjoyed our experience esp in Ephesus. You are very informative. In fact, the way you tell the history of each places is like you're doing a story telling to your kids. You are so fun to be with and so witty.. and so sweet, and lovely.. and the list goes on.. I bet your "babies" can testify to that. :) Just want to thank you for being so helpful and for making sure we will have the best experience in Turkey. Miss you already! Love you mameeeeeh! <3

Marcy as a tour guide she is able to make you know the history, and also what you really need to know about those places you going visit in Turkey. Plus with her as your tour guide you will never regret as visitors. Her personality is imcompare she is so kind, friendly, open,and so much more that you must experience for yourself with her as you tour guide. I wish her to continue the excellent work and be the best tour guide in turkey. love you marcy, and I know many will miss you.
