Today my partner and I went on the Ephesus Exclusive Tour run by Hello Ephesus. On the tour you have the opportunity to visit the Ancient City of Ephesus (including the Terrace Houses), the Temple of Artemis, the House of the Virgin Mary, and Ephesus Archaeological Museum. Lunch is also included at Heirloom Weaving Centre (where they make amazing Turkish rugs by hand). They are able to cater for vegetarians and vegans - which is great considering how hard it can be to find good options! We couldn't have asked for a better experience touring the area and learning about the history behind Ephesus. Our guide, Volkan Bikmaz, was very knowledgeable and made it a day that we won't forget!

This was my first time in Turkey and was nerves about not booking though the cruise ship and booking my own tour. I am so glad I picked Hello Ephesus! It started with their knowledgeable staff who answered all my emails quickly. When the cruise changed port day, they were quick to reply that it was not a problem to switch days. But the best part was our amazing tour guide, Tugrul Sezgin! He is very knowledgeable about Ephesus, the area and Turkey itself. He made it the best tour I have ever been on. Because of him, we will defiantly visit Turkey again.

Our party of 4 was met at the cruise terminal by our guide Arzu. We were all 30 minutes early so we were able to get a head start on the big tour buses and other private tours. Arzu was a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable and friendly. She spoke perfect English so communication was never a problem. Our vehicle was a late model Mercedes Viano van. Very comfortable and the driver (I think his name was Adnan) was very capable and we were very confident in his driving, especially in the twisting roads around the mountains. Everything about this tour was great, from the fantastic Ephesus ruins to the old village of Sirince, Virgin Mary’s house, to the wonderful lunch that was included. We also visited a rug making centre. It was amazing to see how they are made. They had some great rugs for sale but none of us were in the market. All in all a great tour. And less than half the price of the ship’s tour with a 50 seater bus!

This was an excellent private day tour. The tour began and ended on time. TUĞRUL SEZGİN did a superior job as our tour guide. He is personable and knowledgeable about the history of the region variously called Asia Minor/Anatolia/Turkey, whether the time period is Hellinistic/Roman/Byzantine/Ottoman/Modern. The highlight was the terrace houses of Ephesus, made better by the retired archeologist present that day who was willing to share his experiences and information. We also toured the ruins of Basilica of St. John and Meryemana Evi (House of Mary), both religious sites were worthy of our time. Transportation was as advertised, in a comfortable van. Our driver was safe and friendly. Communication with Hello Ephesus was smooth and timely throughout.

My wife and I recently enjoyed a private tour provided by Hello Ephesus and our guide Goksu Pamir. We were on a Mediterranean Celebrity Cruise and had booked the tour online before departure. We were met at the port and Goksu had arranged a private driver to take us to the Historic Ephesus site. We spent several quality hours touring the site and the Terrace Houses. Goksu was very educated on the history and shared so much with us at each special place. We were lucky he brought us there early before the large tour groups and we enjoyed an almost private review of the Terrace Houses. This historical landmark is one not to miss and Hello Ephesus and Goksu will provide an excellent experience.
