As a center of a trade route in the past, Miletus was one of the largest cities in Anatolia region with a between 80.000 and 100.000 inhabitants. Booming Miletus was abode of the 6C BC philosophers Anaximander, Anaximenes and Thales, the town planner Hippodamus and architect Isidorus. Besides, many colonies were founded by the Miletus. With a prominent position, Miletus became the most significant port in this region, as well as one of the high active members of the Ionian Confederation of the twelve cities. In the 7th century, BC Lydians besieged the city. After that, the city was controlled by the Persians, Roman and Seljuk Turks. After Miletus, we will visit Didyma, a prophecy center dedicated to Apollo. The world Didyma meant “twins” and it was associated by some as being the meeting place of Zeus and Leto to have their twins Apollo and Artemis.

      A journey through the past
      I recently had the pleasure of taking a tour of Ephesus with guide Mr.Goksel. It was truly an unforgettable experience. Our tour guide made the visit more enriching by providing fascinating historical insights at every turn. We felt like stepping back in time. I recommend to everyone this company and guide.

      Terrible Cancellation Policy
      Do Not Use These Tour Organizers! We were scheduled to use their service on October 9, 2023. But due to the Bombings in Isarel on October 7, 2023 the Cruise Ship we were on was not able to stop in Kusadasi (Ephesus) to let us embark at that Port because our safety was not guaranteed and our lives were in danger! We called these Organizers just as soon as our Captain of our Cruise Ship told us that he had to alter our Trip due to the War/Bombings. We immediately called the Tour Organizers and told them that we would not be stopping in Kusadasi, which was out of our control and was told that we would be refunded our money. Well, they Lied and then just emailed to us their Cancellation Policy!! I am so disappointed with these Tour Organizers and will NOT recommend this group to anyone! This group does not represent Turkey well at all !!

      Very dishonest
      My family and I booked this tour (group of over 25) as part of our stop in Turkey for our cruise in October. Our cruise ship had to reroute because of the conflict in Israel as that was our port of return. Because of this diversion, we were unable to attend this tour as our Turkey leg of the cruise was canceled. We have reached out to be reimbursed and we have repeatedly been told we were no shows! A claim was filed with our credit card company and we were sent a somewhat threatening and harassing email from this guide telling us to reverse the dispute. To say this has left a bad taste in my mouth would be an understatement. Collecting money for a tour that was never done, by no fault of our own and refusing to refund NONE of it. I would call that stealing!!

      Unfavorable Cancellation Policy
      We were schedule to do this tour however the bombing in Israel prevented our cruise from stopping at this port. Organizers refused to cancel or refund our monies. This was very bad and hence left a really bad taste.

      The time and care put in to making the carpets by the ladies was great to watch. Knowing how to extract the silk from the pods and weave them into material to make the carpets was very interesting

      Amazing Whirlwind Tour of Ephesus, Turkish Rugs and Bath!
      Our guide, Füsun, made us feel like her personal guests as we spent an adventure-filled day together. She met us as we disembarked from our cruise ship and brought us to a nice air-conditioned van for our travels. We visited a market where we were able to try a variety of Turkish delicacies and then on to Ephesus to view the largest open air ruins in the world. Füsun was extremely engaging and knowledgable as we toured the ruins, which were amazing! We then had a delicious lunch in a beautiful setting, followed by an eye-opening visit to see how turkish rugs are made - so impressive! We ended the day with a traditional Turkish bath - so relaxing! Overall, we loved everything and would highly recommend.
