Really excellent driver/guide with wonderful English and highly knowledgeable. Filled us in on everything from current political situation (they had just had a controversial election) to the validity of the House of the Virgin Mary to the history of Ephesus both biblical and ancient. The delicious al fresco lunch was included in the price (didn't expect that!) and the entire... More

Nothing is new unless you consider a 4tth century building as new because other buildings and ruins are over 2000 years old. Our driver did an awesome job describing the biblical and non-biblical related history of this area. We visited many sites including Hadrian's Temple, the Terrace Houses, House of the Virgin Mary, etc. During the 6 hour tour we... More

Our tour started at the port of Kusadasi. Our tour guide, Gezum was very knowledgeable of the sites we visited. Our first stop was the House of the Virgin Mary. We then went to Ephesus and Gezum explained all about the excavations and history of the site. We toured the Terrace Houses and that alone was well worth the price... More

We were met at our ship by our guide, Doğukan. We had a group of five, and were joined by one other group of two. We toured comfortably in a van which would hold about 12-14 persons. Doğukan allowed just the right amount of time at each stop. We made several stops including The House of the Virgin Mary, Ephesus,... More

We booked a private tour for our cruise stop at Kusadasi for Ephesus, Mary's House and Terrace houses. Our guide Doğukan picked us up at the arranged time in a clean and air conditioned mini van (for just the 2 of us), the driver was friendly and drove carefully throughout our tour. We had enough time at each place and... More

Our group of four took the Ephesus Deluxe + Istanbul full day (The DUO) semi-private tour on September 25th (Istanbul) and September 26th (Kusadasi). Our guide for the first day in Istanbul was a women who called herself "Nur". Nur was a very knowledgeable guide but also very bossy. We were unfortunate to be traveling to Turkey in the mist...

We were part of a group of 4, plus our guide Selcuk and our driver. We started in Ephesus, including the Terrace Houses. It was an amazing experience---don't miss the Terrace Houses---They were one of the best parts of the tour for sure. Seljuk is very knowledgeable and accommodating, even taking us on a side trip to a ceramic studio... More
