We took a tour of Ephesus with this private tour. The tour guide was very kind and very knowledgeable. She also spoke English very well. She let us control the tour mostly, and did not take us to places if we were not interested in them. The tour guide could really answer any question that we had, which I found... More

A group of 6 friends were met at the dock by Tijen and travelled on an A/C Mercedes van. The tour was well worth the cost and Tijen was very knowledgeable about the local history. Especially enjoyed the Mother Mary house. We also had time to shop at a local market. Would certainly recommend Tijen and this tour to all

Tijen did an amazing job on our tour of Ephesus. We beat the cruise crowds and our tour was only our group of 3 couples. So it was customized to what we wanted. We also went to a Turkish restaurant. We said we wanted to go where the locals go. Not a tourist trap. We had a fantastic lunch. We... More

There is nothing better than to have a tour by a local. Tijen was GREAT!!! We had a group of about a dozen people and Tijen was able to make sure we were all satisfied. She will build the tour to your liking and your wants. I highly, highly recommend.

Last Summer, my mother, sister and myself had a wonderful private tour of Ephesus & Priene with one of Tijen's fellow guides. We were in Kusadasi for the day via the Celebrity Reflection. This was my 3rd time to the area, and I wanted to see some sights in more detail. We went to Ephesus first and started at the... More

We have been with Ephesus Tours and Tijen's guides twice over the last few years. The first year we toured Ephesus and the Temple of Artemis and then the next time we toured more ruins south of Ephesus (Priene, Didyma, etc.). The tour guides are excellent, they speak excellent English, provide great information and make the day perfect.

Excellent guide! Impressive knowledge and delightful company. Tijen went the extra mile to arrange a delicious lunch and even set up transportation for us the day after we toured Epheses with her. HIghly recommended.

The guides were good. These are good network of single ladies, looking to live their life in their own terms. They took good care of us. Support them

Tijen was a great tour guide. The driver picked us up at our hotel at the time we had decided upon. We spent the day at Ephesus, mother mary house, and lunch, and then airport drop off. I highly recommend getting a guide for Ephesus. There is so much to know about it and Tijen is very knowledgable! I would... More

Tijen was a top-notch tour guide for Ephesus and the Mother Mary home. Her selection of driver and a delicious local restaurant for lunch were excellent. We would absolutely book with Tijen again--her knowledge of Turkish history is outstanding, and she is a pleasure to spend time with.
