Our Turkey day tour arrangements were made with Ismail through Iglesias Tour Turkey. All correspondence was through emails prior to our visit. Ismail proved to be an extremely competent and educated professional in his field. Ismail has a vast knowledge of all aspects of Turkey and his entire conversations are delivered in impeccable English. He showed us all the important main attractions in Epesus and he took us to a quaint and friendly restaurant located at the rear of a carpet factory for a delicious Turkish meal all the while attending to our every need. Many thanks, Ismail, for providing our group with a delightful and memorable tour of Turkey.

We booked a guided tour with the lovely Fatima and her husband. We were a family of nine with young children! We were very well received by Fatima at our hotel. She is an awesome, kind and patient guide with lot of knowledge and many tips. The chosen route, restaurant and local shop were great 👍 I would absolutely recommend other travelers to choose Fatima and her husband as their guide.

Fatima is fun, fantastic and fabulous tour guide. She was patient w/ all of our questions and requests and always flexible about what our group wanted to do. She was one big smile and made our tour perfect. I valued her information as we explored each site. Her English skills are very good. The lunch stop was not only relaxing but full of more interesting things to see. We would request Fatima as a tour guide again.

Small group ephesus from kusadasi port
Jun 2019 • Family
Fatima was incredible with her historical information. So thorough yet not boring. Highly recommend booking with her specifically. We were on a Windstar cruise and booked a day touring Ephesus and the Virgin Mary's home. Plus, she took us to an out of the way spot for lunch with the locals. If you book anything in Kusadasi make sure you ask for her.

Delightful day with an excellent guide
May 2019 • Friends
When I was collecting information about tours for May 19, Ismail responded promptly to my emails and answered all my questions in great detail. Fatima and Ismail were waiting for us at the cruise port, with a warm welcome to Turkey. Fatima was our guide for the day and did a fantastic job! We went to the House of the Virgin Mary, Ephesus Ancient City and the Temple of Artemus. Fatima's expertise made the history of these places come alive and her enthusiasm kept us interested and engaged. Our group was given lunch at a local restaurant where the food was excellent! Afterwards, we saw a bit about carpet making that was quite interesting. The timing of the day was about as perfect as it could be, we saw a lot without being rushed. By the end of a day rich in experiences, I was so happy to have booked with "Best Turkey Tours".
Best of luck Fatima and Ismail. Hope to see you again!

Excellent time in Ephesus with Yavuz
May 2019 • Couples
Our guide for this excellent day was Yavuz. He met us at the cruise port. We were a small group (12). Once on the bus, he introduced himself. He was very knowledgeable, very informative, attentive, friendly and just a nice person. We first visited Mary's house. He gave us tips there and free time to explore. Next was Ephesus. What a wonderful place. We stayed together as a group and he led us through the grounds. He pointed out many interesting things and gave us background information. He was a gentleman and even lent me his umbrella when it started to rain. We had our group and individual pictures taken at the library which was a lovely surprise. We received these pictures at the end of our tour. We visited Artemis' Temple (the one lone column still standing). Next was a delectable lunch at Turkmen followed by a demonstration on handmade Turkish carpets which was quite interesting. We also had an opportunity to buy some of these carpets but no one in our group bought. There was actually no pressure to buy so that was great. We got back to the cruise ship with time to spare to look through the shops at the cruise port or explore on our own. All in all, it was a great tour, thanks to Yavuz. He explained that Turkey was safe and that extra measures were taken to ensure everyone's safety. This was said at the very beginning and not once did we feel uncomfortable. Our one regret was that we wish we had left earlier. We waited till 9am for a member who never showed up. This gave the large group tour busses a head start. We would have loved it if we had left earlier and beaten the crowds at the interest spots. Thank you to Yavuz and Best Turkey Tour for a very enjoyable time. I highly recommend them.
