The tour was more than we expected and we thoroughly enjoyed every part of it.
Wonderful tour. It is an incredible place to visit. Note there is a bit of walking on this tour, but very manageable.
This was one of the best tours I have ever taken! The tour guide was fluent in English and she was extremely knowledgeable. This tour is worth much more
than what you pay. Simply delightful! I highly recommend it.
We were the only 2 people on the tour since it was off season. I was glad they did not cancel the tour. So we had our personal driver and our guide. It was very good. The tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly.
The tour was well planned. The guide was very nice, enthusiastic and told us much more than what was on the tour. Ephesus is full of tourists from cruises, thus peak season may not be the best time to visit. The place we had lunch was well chosen, we ate really well, local specialities - very nice! Aside of Ephesus and St. Mary's house, we also visited St John's Basilika, what is left of Artemis Temple (with a beautiful view though) and a rug factory. Ephesus is impressive!
The tour was wonderful, a must do. However, these tour companies put people staying local with people who are flying in for the day. This is bad, because the flying passengers, if they get delayed, as happened with my group, you are delayed and the tour is essentially shortened because they fly out the same day and need to catch a flight a a particular time. Warning, check to see if your tour is tied to fly-in people, and if it is, book a different tour.
Highly interesting sites on this tour and professional and friendly guide.
This was one of the best tours I have done. The guide, Guler Aslan, was fabulous. She knew so much about the history and she was very approachable to chat to about Turkey in general. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who goes to Izmir
Our guide Ms. Aslan was wonderful!!! Knowlegable and funny she was the best. Will request her every time from now on.
Very rewarding experience. Our guide spoke good English and had plenty of stories and information to share about the historic sites we visited. We had a good amount of time to walk around, explore, and take photos on our own, separate from the group. Lunchtime food was good, and hotel pickup/airport drop off were on time.
The tour guide was excellent. She was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The tour itself was well-organized and our guide described in detail the archaeological and historical developments of the region.
Very nice tour. I will recommend it to everyone. Everyone was nice and kind and the guide was very knowledgeable. He grew up in the area and as a child played on the ruins before it was made into what it was today --- very good. A driver picked me up in Izmir --- very good.
