Great sightseeing tour spoilt by unwanted visit to Leather Store and Rug merchants
Firstly let me say that the sites visited - Ephesus, Mary's House and Basilica of St John were well worth visiting

Great day out. The tour guide was excellent we enjoyed our walk around the place. So much history to absorb, and even a short tour of the highlights will take half a day.

The place is spectacular, breathtaking and memorable, definitely deserve a second trip. I good tourist guide is a must, or at least take audio guiders provided for low cost at entrance. If you have a car it's better to go by your self rather than paying to travel agency, the ticket is 40YTL (Turkish lira) for adults and free for children up to 12 years. Make sure to have plenty of water as the walking is for hours.

A fantastic historical site to visit, especially on a guided tour,where the past is brought to life.It is rather uneven to walk in places but if you're careful,as I was, even though I have some mobility problems it can be managed.A point to remember is that it can get extremely hot, so if you can choose your holiday dates it's best to avoid the high summer! As you go round the guides can choose areas with walls etc where you can sit to listen to their informative talks, if you mention that you need a little assistance.

These guys were absolutely horrible.

I booked them through Viator, I sent them a direct email to confirm, which they did. Then I waited for my pickup info...nothing. I emailed them, they didn’t respond. I called them but got a recorded line. I called them the morning of, to confirm, and they wouldn’t pick up. I called their “emergency line” and the guy said to call the office. They responded to my last email that said the tour was canceled because of low attendance, 22 minutes before the start of the tour! I was furious! And of course, they couldn’t have cared less.

I only had one day planned in the area, and even so, seeing Ephesus was a big part of my trip to Turkey. This tour company nearly destroyed that plan. Luckily my superb hotel (Ilayda Advantgarde) found me another tour, already in progress, so I zipped over and joined them mid-tour.

I heard Neon Tours is a big company and they do this kind of thing all the time. Book with them at your peril.

If you like to enjoy a tour of Ephesus, House of Mary and temple of Artemis as well as spending time in beautiful Kusadasi by the sea,ask for Zeynep w/ Kusadasi private Ephesus tours, She is a pleasant woman w/ vast knowledge of the ruins and history of Turkey. Both her & her partner speak fluent English and provide a comfortable transportation from and to Izmir. We truly enjoyed our guided tour and highly recommend it.
