Begum, of Ephesus Tours, is the best! I cant imagine a better private guide for our family of 4.
Apr 2019
My wife and son (7) and daughter (9) booked Begum from Ephesus Tours for a full day tour of Ephesus, The museum, and St. John's Basilica, whatever we wanted to see. I was given her name on the highest recommendation of a patient of mine in the United States. She speaks excellent English and I was most impressed. You will be as well. She has been guiding for 10 years around Ephesus and her mentor was an archaeologist working on the site for 40 years. For accurate information, context and experience with adjusting the tour to meet your needs/interests, Begum is spot on. I felt like I could really see history come alive on our tour.

Here are some key points from our experience:

1) Get a great guide. You can visit Ephesus without one but you will miss so much.

2) This area of Turkey feels TOTALLY SAFE. Tourism has been down alot the last 2-3 years with the Syrian civil war, but DO NOT WORRY, even if you have small kids. In fact you can get some great deals and help keep local tourism to this great place going. We stayed in Selcuk and while we were eating and having tea with folks here, our kids ran around the alleys at night on their own and with local kids, often out of our sight for long periods time. We probably felt more comfortable with this then at home in the city of Portland, Oregon. Everyone looks out for kids and are super friendly with them.

3) You can do a Ephasus and Terrace Houses, Basilica and Museum in half day, no problem. Make sure you get the Terrace Houses and Museum tickets as well, do not scrimp here. No need to book meal trip as well, unless you want. Half day private guide is probably your best bang for you buck, but full day is not much more expensive if you want to stretch thing out a bit. We weren't sure what to book and wanted to have an easy pace to see what we wanted so we booked a full day. Ended up sharing a fantastic late lunch Turkish with Begum at a place she recommended to end our day. By choice, we passed on the Temple of Artemis (not much there now and great model and statues at the museum, and the Mary's church (probably less interesting for non-Christians).

4) Start early! It gets hot much of the year. 8 am is great. We had a car and met her at the entrance of Ephesus. Were out before it was to hot (oh and it starts to get CROWDED later), and went to Museum and Basilica after.

5) Have fun!

Thanks Begum for a lifetime memory!

Best Way to see Ephesus!
Jun 2018 • Couples
Our tour guide made this tour. Begum was wonderful, knew her history of the different areas and was very accommodating. There were two couples in our group and we all felt like this tour was the best part of our cruise. We were picked up right at the ship. The van was comfortable and the extra water was definitely needed as it was a hot day. Seeing Mary's House, Ancient Ephesus, St. John's Cathedral and Temple of Artemis-all we amazing and getting the history from Begum was great. Lunch at Turkmen's was excellent- authentic Greek. The entire experience have made us decide we need to see more of Turkey! Highly recommend this tour and seeing Turkey!
