We traveled to Kusadasi on the Celebrity Reflection and waited until the last minute to book anything. We stumbled upon TransBalkan on Trip Advisor and booked the night before. They responded quickly despite it being Saturday night and Sunday morning, Ogj (our guide) met us at the port with a driver. He took us in a tour of the Virgin... More

A very short stay for my family in beautiful Kusadasi as we were on a cruise. Our taxi driver and tour guide were both waiting for us at the port. They tailored the tour around our wishes and it was simply perfect. We visited the House of Mary, Ephesus which was simply amazing, as well as a ceramic workshop and... More

We booked this half day private tour directly with Denizhan while on a cruise stop. Denizhan was very responsive to my email questions and was painless to schedule and setup. On the day of the tour we had Semih as our tour guide. He was super knowledgeable about all the sites we saw. He had endless energy and made the... More

We had the full day tour of Ephesus, Virgin Mary, lunch and Semih was amazing! He was very informative, energetic and made a lasting impression as we had our tour some time ago and everybody still remembers and talks about it to this day! A wonderful place full of history and Semih was the perfect guide.

Our day trip to Ephesus was amazing! We decided to book a private tour (rather than the ship's tour) and are so glad we did. Denizhan made us feel very welcome and his knowledge of the area and sights was incredible. We had 8 in our group including our 13 year old son, 9 year old daughter and an older... More

We are a family of four- parents and 2 children ages 10 and 12. We had a stop in Kusadasi and decided to book a private tour since it's much more personalized than a big excursion managed by the cruise ship. This was THE BEST tour we have done this vacation! Pros: 1- Very easy to book, very prompt and... More

Semih was fantastic, told the story with passion and great enthusiasm and knowledge. This was followed by a delicious... More

Our day in Ephesus was absolutely fantastic. My wife and I visited 20 years ago and there is much more to see now. The guide (I forget her name!)was fun and knowledgeable, and the driver friendly. The car was clean and comfortable, with wonderful air conditioning on a hot day. I would definitely recommend the terrace houses of Ephesus. Its... More

There was four of us picked up at the port of Kusadasi for a full day trip to Ephesus including the ancient city, the Basilica of St John and the house of the Virgin Mary. What a wonderful day everything went as planned with Denizhan Pekoz being the most knowledgeable guide about all the places we visited. We organised itineraries... More

I used TransBalkan Tours aka Denizhan Pekoz to do a one day trip from Istanbul to tour Ephesus. For a very reasonable price a driver and guide, Mrs. Yesim Kulak, picked me up at the Izmir airport, took me to see the Ephesus site, the house of the Virgin Mary, and the Basilica ruins and back to the airport. One... More
