We had a wonderful tour in Turkey while on a cruise. We toured with the Best of Ephesus tour company. A wonderful young lady (Azer) was our tour guide along with a driver. The van that we used was very comfortable and easy to get in and out of.

This tour was excellent and fascinating! Ephesus is amazing! We especially enjoyed the Terrace Houses.....a highlight of all our tours. Azer was incredibly knowledgable about all of the sites that we visited.

After the tour to Ephesus, we had lunch outside that served some excellent turkish food. From there we stopped at a carpet factory (which we really enjoyed). The demonstration was very fascinating and the carpets were beautiful. From there we stopped at a leather shop. We were given a private fashion show. It was very interesting, and the clothing was beautiful.
I (and one other lady) purchased a jacket and I love mine!

The Best of Ephesus was one of our favorite tours. I would highly recommend this tour...and Azer if you are able to get her as a guide.

From my initial contact with best Ephesus I was impressed they responded quickly answering all of my questions.
Our cruise itinerary was altered 12 hours before and instead of going to Istanbul we went to Kasudasi. The Best of Ephesus tours knew about this changed and had sent several emails to me saying that they would met us at Kasudasi port.
Isik was our tour guide. She was incredibly knowledgable about all the areas we visited and was very capable of imparting her knowledge to us all including my 6 year old son. We had a fantastic tour of the things that we wanted to see and learn about. Isik also informed us of the traps that we could of fallen into( buying old Roman coins etc).
thankyou for a wonderful day

Our tour of Ephesus with Hakan Bozdag was outstanding and one of the highlights of our recent vacation. In addition to being most informative, he creates a historical context for what we saw which enhanced our overall visit. He speaks English very well and was most accommodating to our interests and needs. We would highly recommend hiring Hakan as a guide.

Look No More Book This Tour!
Tour Guide ISIK was the best!
What you read on the tour site is what you get. Pay the extra cost to visit the Terrace Houses & The Virgin Mary's House. ISIK made this tour fit our wishes... After lunch we watch Turkish carpet being made and bought one!!! This tour was remarkable! BRAVO! As a side note:
We experience a medical urgency while at the Archaeological Site. ISIK was nothing less than incredible. The Turkish ambulance arrived within minutes to access our friend, who fainted. As per request, the EMTs delivered our friend to the tour van, when she relaxed and recovered.
This tour was exceptional in So many aspects! True caring & kind professionals! Book This Tour!

Zeynep is just the Best! From our initial booking to our email communications to the actual tour she has been very professional, clear, precise and very knowledgeable. Since there's 7 of us in our family, we've decided to take a private tour with Zeynep. She was really on top of things, i.e. the change of ports by NCL and even the change of itinerary of NCL. These information I wasn't even aware of until Zeynep told us. Zeynep, thank you again for making our family vacation a success and a memorable one!
