“Fatma is fabulous, definitely book her!”

Helliantus Anatolia Tours
Ranked #28 of 107 Tours in Kusadasi
Attraction details
Reviewed July 31, 2011

We were two couples on a cruise with a day in Kusadasi. I did a lot of research looking for a guide and was lucky enough to find Fatma, she is absolutely fabulous! She is very knowledgeable and an absolute delight to be around. Make sure you take the Terrace Houses "additional tour" while in the ancient ruins, it was wonderful and also go to Sirince Village for lunch, go to the little cafe where they have the wood burning oven for the best pizza around! Also, ask her to take you for the best Baklava in the city and also Turkish Delights! Yummy on both counts. After spending a wonderful day with Fatma, you will have a friend for life. She mentioned to us that she also tours in Istabul, we've decided that is our next trip and we definitely plan to use Fatma. Trust me, you will not be disappointed, she is a 5 star rating!!!

Fatma is one of the best guides we had on our recent trip to Italy, Greece and Turkey. She is incredibly knowledgeable and very personable. We enjoyed our day with her in Kusadasi and Ephesus and would hightly recommend her.

We were taking a cruise and visiting Turkey. While researching ports and excursions on TripAdvisor, I came across Helliantus Tours and Fatma's name. We were looking forward to visiting Ephesus the most so I really didn't want to do a big ship tour. I was reluctant at first to book the tour, but decided to go for it after reading about Fatma. Well, I am so glad that I did. We met her at the port and she explained one of her colleagues would be giving us our tour. Her name was Zeynep. We immediately fell in love with her. She was a wealth of information, spoke excellent English, and smiled all of the time. She was especially good with children and went out of her way to visit with them and find out about them. We all learned so much and left wanting to return to Turkey and learn more. The tour price was an absolute bargain compared to the ships. I highly recommend this tour company!

While opting for alternatives to the NCL Jade tours (highly overpriced) for Ephesus, Turkey, we had found Helliantus Tours managed by Fatma ACAR on another tripadvisor recommendation. From our very first email, she was efficient and very responsive. We were somewhat uneasy because the ship always tells you the horror stories of booking with outside people, but we read the reviews and the price was exceptional. ($50 eu/person and included lunch). Our guide was so knowledgable, spoke excellent English and when we shared our experience with other cruisers that night at dinner, they all agreed that our tour sounded so much better than the one with NCL. She also provides extended tours of the entire country if you're looking something other than a day trip. She can be reached at [--].
